HOW WE ARE ORGANIZED

BBB Rating A+ as of 12/8/2016 Buyer's Agent

Elika Associates is the premier New York City firm that specializes in exclusive buyer representation. As a member of The National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (NAEBA), our fiduciary responsibility and undivided loyalty is to the buyer 100% of the time. Also as a member of the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), we have access to all listings in New York City. Whether you are a US resident or foreign investor we cater our services to your specific real estate needs and best of all our fee is paid by the seller.

 

HOW IS A BUYER’S AGENT PAID?

We are compensated as any other Broker and paid through the proceeds of the sale. Customarily, fees for real estate brokerage have been “built-in” to the purchase price of the property. This means that a typical purchase will result in no additional out-of-pocket fees for you!. Technically when purchasing a property, you are paying to have representation or not to have representation.
 

The question is: Would you prefer to pay to have someone work for you or the seller?

When an apartment sells, half of the 5% or 6% commission is paid to the real estate company that brings in the Buyer and the other half is kept by the firm listing the property for sale, representing the Seller.

But when the real estate company which lists the property also brings in the Buyer, that real estate company keeps both the sides of the commission.

You may be thinking the higher the price you pay for the home, the higher our commission will be, so how does this work? We have a fiduciary responsibility to get the home at the best price for you, not the highest commission for ourselves. We know that our business expands only with satisfied clients.

Remember, you would not hire your spouse’s attorney to represent you in your divorce. The same applies to Real Estate.

SIMPLIFYING THE BUYING PROCESS

To make the purchasing process easier, our exclusive buyer’s agents move quickly to present you with concrete facts about multiple high-quality properties. As our firm doesn’t handle sales in any capacity, we have no conflicts of interest when providing:

HOME EVALUATIONS

We have experience in the New York housing market and always find essential information about properties before we show them to our clients. Buyers need to know whether properties are likely to gain value, and by carefully screening the market and previewing properties before showing them, we’re able to spot excellent real estate deals that match our clients’ needs. Learn more: Comparable Market Analysis.

NEGOTIATIONS

Many home buyers are uncomfortable with negotiations, and when buyers have only worked with sales-oriented brokerage firms, it’s easy to understand their reservations. Elika agents have experience with hundreds of home negotiations and will make sure that you’re not oversold on a property.

SUNDRY SERVICES

Mortgage brokers, lawyers, home inspectors and other professionals can quickly add to the cost of your home purchase. We source the best professionals and help you make the necessary arrangements to purchase your home quickly and easily.

Our buyer’s agents offer a new way to view the housing market and to find your dream properties. Save yourself time, money, and stress by using buyer’s agents from Elika for your next home purchase.

Buying a home is one of the most important investments people can make, and the US Department of Housing recommends the use an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent. Elika Associates is the only firm in Manhattan eligible for membership with the National Association of Buyers Agents and provides undivided loyalty to customers at all times. As of the beginning of 2011, New York State now requires that real estate agents disclose their agency relationship and the rights and obligations it creates. New York State Disclosure Form for Buyer and Seller to clarify agency prior to representing a buyer and/or seller.

 

A conflict of interest is more likely when a real estate firm that represents sellers assigns you one of its brokers as a buyer agent. That’s why many people believe an ‘exclusive’ buyer broker is preferable. – Business Week
