New Construction Buyer Representation
Collins Group Realty Real Estate Specialists provide full-service New Construction Buyer Representation, at no cost to you, when you decide to purchase a new construction home from a home builder/developer. Please remember that the sales agent working for the developer is representing the developer’s interest, not yours.
“Our CGR Real Estate Specialist remained in touch while we were building. He worked with us over a year and helped us in every area of building our home. He read through legal documents, spent time with us at the design center, at all the inspections and even helped us secure a rental home until we were able to move in. He was a true representative for us, his clients.” – Mr. & Mrs. Longbucco
