People Before Property

With vast experience working with Jacksonville builders, your Round Table pros are well versed in new trends in home construction from plan layout to energy efficiency, from costs to build to value of customizations.  The Round Table team isn't just focused on the finishing touches, like granite counters or the flooring tile, but thedowntown-jacksonville-florida way the home was built, from the insulation to the drainage, from the rounded corner bead to the cost of living in the home.  When you choose Round Table Realty, you get the peace of mind that comes with having an expert by your side.

While most Real Estate Brokerages and Agents practice Transaction Brokerage, Round Table Agents are encouraged to be Single Agents.  This means that clients get Loyalty, Obedience, Full  Confidentiality and Full Disclosure. Most people are shocked to find out that they're are not getting these valuable aspects from their Realtor and for no additional fees.  Typically its because their Realtor doesn't even know about these things... because they haven't been trained to be exclusive agents of their own clients versus referees that simply push paper.

Buyer's Representation

For home buyers, the marketplace is truly overwhelming right now.  You need a sharp team of skilled real estate professionals to dial in on what you want.  The Round Table's experts focus on what you are saying, and zero in on the homes that will make you happy for years to come.  Your goals guide us, not the other way around.

As your Buyer's Representative, we can make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. We can help you get financing, guide you to local neighborhoods, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home. We'll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.  Once you've found a place that catches your eye, we'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer. Then we'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the most favorable terms.

It's our job and duty to look after your best interests, and we will do so at no cost to you.  The bare minimum Real Estate Agent should follow the license requirements:

  • (a) Dealing honestly and fairly;
  • (b) Accounting for all funds;
  • (c) Using skill, care, and diligence in the transaction;
  • (d) Disclosing all known facts that materially affect the value of residential real property and are not readily observable to the buyer;
  • (e) Presenting all offers and counteroffers in a timely manner, unless a party has previously directed the licensee otherwise in writing;
  • (f) Limited confidentiality, unless waived in writing by a party. This limited confidentiality will prevent disclosure that the seller will accept a price less than the asking or listed price, that the buyer will pay a price greater than the price submitted in a written offer, of the motivation of any party for selling or buying property, that a seller or buyer will agree to financing terms other than those offered, or of any other information requested by a party to remain confidential; and
  • (g) Any additional duties that are mutually agreed to with a party.

...but we all know that that isn't what it takes to do a good job; it takes more than just that.  See the difference between a Round Table agent and one you'll be assigned at one of the big corporate boxes is that we don't rush you to a purchase, you drive the train, not the other way around.  We won't claim to know more than you do about what you need.  We're here to help.
