Real estate consumers should consider all options for assistance when buying and selling homes in the Greater Denver area. Boutique brokerages are smaller in size compared to larger firms, but they can bring quite a bit to the table for buyers and sellers for a variety of reasons.
We’ll discuss four unique characteristics of a boutique brokerage that may be unfamiliar to Front Range real estate consumers.
A boutique brokerage atmosphere allows brokers to conduct transactions as they see fit for each situation. Brokers are responsible for their methods and free to use them accordingly based on past experience.
Large real estate firms typically have a set-in-stone process for their agents, thus lacking flexibility in this regard.
For example, boutique brokers are able to choose professionals in various fields (banks, inspectors, etc.) to carry out transactions throughout the real estate process. Large firms rely on a set group of outside help which may not always benefit the client.
Independence and trust provided to boutique real estate agents provide better personal attention to each client. They don’t feel the pressure of filling quotas. Instead, they work at a pace that’s best for each client giving them the attention they deserve.
Large real estate firms typically require monthly sales quotas from their agents. This can lead to heavy workloads, rushed deals, and far less attention to details than boutique agents.
The team aspect of boutique brokerages is an important characteristic. The entire team of boutique brokers work for each client, not just one designated agent. Each broker is still responsible for their client, but a group effort is readily available and used as needed. Boutique agents aren’t competing against one another. Instead, they utilize the specialties of everyone to help their clients.
Bigger real estate firms have a large base of agents working for them, but not necessarily working in team units. Their agents may not be in close contact with others having different areas of expertise than they do.
