real estate

I’m unhappy with my real estate salesperson and I’m not sure I want to work with him anymore. Can I cut him out of the process and deal with the seller’s agent myself?

Insurance Protecting your deposit

When you work with a registered real estate broker or salesperson, your deposit is protected subject to the terms and conditions of the insurance policy.

All brokers and salespersons are required by law to participate in an insurance program that includes consumer deposit insurance.

The coverage that protects your deposit is available under the insurance program at no cost to you.

using a real estate brokerage

The decision to use a brokerage (or not) is entirely yours to make, but the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) strongly recommends working with a registered salesperson or broker when you buy or sell a property for the simple reason that navigating your way through a real estate transaction on your own from start to finish can get complicated, especially if you’re inexperienced.
