How Are We Different?

We are an exclusive buyer agency company. All the agents in our company are licensed real estate agents and work for buyers all the time - full time buyer representatives, specialists.

How is that different from most real estate companies?

Most real estate companies focus on listing properties for sale for sellers providing seller agency services. Through open houses, multiple listing services and advertising, these listings attract buyers. If a buyer becomes interested in purchasing a listed property, that agent and/or that company may offer buyer agency services to the buyer. Since agency services are obligatory upon the entire company, it is quite easy for one company to be offering them to buyer and seller of the same property at the same time. When this occurs it is very easy for conflict of interest to become a factor. Potential for conflict of interest is the main reason we have opted to specialize in representing BUYERS ONLY.

Piscataqua River, Portsmouth, NH - Gateway to the Northeast

Are You a Buyer or Seller

Welcome to our office at the port in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This view from our office complex is looking East down the Piscataqua [Pis'cat'-a-qwa] River towards the Southern Maine Coast, open ocean and eventually... England. The large ship anchored is delivering rock salt from the Far East which will be shipped throughout New England by truck. Tomorrow, this ship will be gone and the view will change...

Our view of the world of real estate is also unique.

We are an exclusive buyer agency and have been since 1990. That means that we choose to represent only BUYERS of real estate. We DO NOT list property for SELLERS. Why is that important? Our interest is YOURS, the buyer, and is therefore not compromised by the selling office's interest to promote the sale of one property over another. If you are relocating to this area make sure that the real estate agency you choose will have only YOUR interest (the buyer's) in mind! Only an exclusive buyer agency can make that pledge.

Boom! We Save You Money

How Hall-McGee Realtors can save you money on your next house purchase.

Last year, on average, we saved our buyer clients over $22,000!

However, paying less is not one of our foremost goals in representing buyers: we are not “discount brokers”. On the contrary, there is nothing “discounted” about our service. We are committed to counseling and educating the real estate buyer, and thus they make better choices throughout the buying process. Buyers have a trusted partner through which they can ask questions and bounce ideas, helping them balance emotion and practicality in making one of the largest investments of their lifetime.

The savings are just part of what happens with a protected relationship. And dollars are not the only savings! Most of our past clients, when asked what was the BIGGEST plus to our service said, “Reduced stress!”  We support the buyer throughout the process, guiding them in selecting other professionals in the process and making sure they know the “next” step to avoid unpleasant surprises. Through questioning and listening to the buyer, we can guide the buyer in selecting the best location for them.

IN SELECTING A REAL ESTATE AGENT, THE CONSUMER HAS FOUR CHOICES:

  1. Exclusive Buyer's Agent
    Works for an office that does not take listings of any kind and represents buyers only
  2. Buyer's Agent
    Works in an office that takes listings. The Buyer Agent will work for a buyer under contract. If a buyer wished to purchase a property listed by the same office, the agent will declare dual (or limited) agency and represent both the buyer and seller in a limited capacity.
  3. Single Agency Buyer's Agent
    Works in an office that takes listings. He or she can represent both buyers and sellers, but will only represent one client in any real estate transaction. The Single Agency Buyer Agent does not practice dual agency.
  4. Traditional or Seller's Agent
    Works in a real estate office that takes listings. Agents represents the seller and works with -- not for -- buyers as customers. All legal obligations are to the seller.
Which Would You Prefer? The Choice is Yours 

If you choose an Exclusive Buyer's Agent with Buyer's Brokers of the Seacoast, you can be assured that YOUR interests are represented 100% of the time with no conflict. We are Realtors® who work ONLY for you, the buyer!

Bought vs. Sold

There may not appear to be a difference, except when you change your perspective. Buying a house and selling a house are two distinctly different actions and require expertise on both ends.

The Bought Sign

A Different Sign

When we started offering our buyer only services in 1990, it soon became evident that we had not SOLD our clients a property, but had helped them BUY, and thus the BOUGHT sign became our sign. Much of our work is counseling and advising and we highly respect our client's ability and right to make their own decisions.
We are proud to display our BOUGHT sign on a property, once it is purchased, to let neighbors know that it has indeed changed ownership and that we helped the new owners in the process.
