FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR HOME BUYERS

What’s the company story?

Founder, Brian O’Laughlin, has been involved in hundreds of real estate transactions over the past decade and a half from a unique vantage point. One where he could see unsuspecting home sellers and buyers settling for less than they otherwise would if they had a more well-rounded understanding of their options when needing to make a decision on a document or situation. With his passion to help protect the consumer in possibly one of their largest buying or selling decisions of their lives, ShieldMyDeal™ was born!

What is dual agency?

This is basically when one agent represents both the buyer and seller in a transaction. To more accurately define it, neither the seller or buyer have representation in their personal best interest at that point. The agent is simply acting as a go between for the two parties. Under this situation, both the seller and buyer are vulnerable to being taken advantage of and not even know it.

What is “industry gamesmanship”?

This practice is not illegal or frankly unethical. However, when consumers (home sellers and buyers) rely almost completely on their real estate agent for advice, a highly experienced agent can frame a situation a certain way like “manufacturing urgency” to get their client to agree to something they may otherwise wouldn’t. By consumers having ShieldMyDeal™, this is less likely to happen or go unnoticed.

Do you work with home seller clients?

Yes, we have an incredible home seller program. We just don’t directly market to home sellers at this time. If you are interested, send us a message or schedule a call so we can get you the details! 

Do you ever work with both a home buyer and seller on the same transaction?

No, that would be a conflict of interest and we will never do that.
