C&C Buyer Representation

Invaluable Advice, No Cost to You

As a buyer, obtaining the counsel and representation of an experienced real estate Broker is always the right decision.

Listing Brokers only work for the seller and their best interests. Don’t believe rumors that you’ll save money by calling the listing Broker directly. No one ever has, and besides, hiring your own agent is completely free for you. While a buyer’s agent works exclusively on your behalf, their fee is paid by the sellers as a standard part of real estate transactions.

It’s tough to get the best terms when have an emotional connection to a property and you’re unfamiliar with the finer points of the local real estate market. You need an advocate who studies the local market and has experience in negotiating Nantucket real estate deals. 

We know this island and its challenges better than anyone. As full-time Brokers, and mostly Nantucket natives, our agents simply have access to information that you don’t, and can see value where other people may overlook it.

That’s the kind of advantage you need on your side of the bargaining table.
