How BREA Helps


Why you should use a BREA Broker when selling (buying) Real Estate

Top Dollar For Your Property…

A BREA Broker knows real estate values. You deserve top dollar for your property. But what is top dollar? It’s not what the neighbour says…or what the home down the street sold for. It’s what your property can realistically bring in today’s market. And, that’s what a BREA BROKER is trained to do: Determine the fair market price of your property at the time you want to sell it.

There’s A Prospect Awaiting Your Property…

BREA BROKERS work closely together to make available for you a qualified list of pre-screened prospects. When a BREA BROKER brings a prospect to your home or property, they are not “lookers”…they are serious persons interested in buying.

BREA Brokers Know The Territory…

Their job is to know the territory in which you live. They are familiar with local building codes, location of schools, churches, shopping, transportation and other pertinent information that will be of importance to prospective buyers. This BREA BROKER expertise goes a long way towards consummating a sale.

A 3rd Party Unbiased View…

That’s what is needed between buyer and seller. And that’s what you get with a BREA BROKER, who has no ties to the property and can objectively answer all questions from the prospective buyer regarding the value and condition of your property.

Marketing Expertise At No Extra Cost…

BREA BROKERS are experts in selling property. That’s their business. They know how to best market a particular piece of property in order to bring top dollar to you, the seller. They work closely together so you benefit from a referral network that ensures your property will get the widest possible exposure.

Make Your Home More Sale-able…

When it comes to suggestions on how to make your home more attractive…more sale-able to prospective buyers…your BREA Broker is the person to whom you should turn. His or her suggestions are based upon years of marketing experience gained by selling homes or properties similar to yours. This experience comes built-in with every BREA Broker.

Assistance For the Buyer…

A BREA Broker also serves the buyer after the sale is made. But in serving the needs of the buyer, the BREA Broker continues to serve the seller. Because of his or her knowledge of local financial institutions, a BREA Broker will aid the buyer in obtaining a mortgage, knows down payment requirements and will offer advice in other matters such as escrow payments, property taxes, closing costs and utility bills.

Use of the Word Realtor® and Other Designations

The Bahamas recognizes US copyright Law. The word Realtor® is a copyrighted trademark of the National Association of Realtors®. NAR has successfully taken their sole right of its use all the way to the US Supreme Court. Any member of an affiliate association, such as BREA is entitled to join NAR. Then and, only then, will you have right use the word Realtor®. Unless this applies to you, you are breaking the law when you refer to yourself as a Realtor®, when you use in it your promotional materials or use it on your website. Similarly, BREA licensed agents are welcome to join the Council of Certified Residential specialists, the CIPS Council, etc. This alone does not give you the right to use these designations. Only if you have completed the course work and electives, submitted your application and received written confirmation of achieving your designation, can you use any of them.

Your BREA dues must be current to maintain any designation.
