Buyers’ Needs


5 Reasons to Hire Gates Management & Realty as your Buyer’s Agent

1. History: We have a 20 plus year history as a real estate firm and KNOW the area.

2. Visibility: We are easy to find as we sit between Bandito’s Mexican Restaurant and the Wine Shop on the main street in downtown Historic Hillsborough – 120 South Churton Street.

3. Properties for Sale: We have residential, land and some commercial property for sale from time to time, BUT we can and do sell real estate listed by other companies. Most of us share our listings through IDX (this is shared listings with other agencies as well as web search sites such as Zillow.com, Homes.com, etc…). NOT all properties are listed on public sites, so we have access to some listings that you may not see as well as these public sites may not always be as up to date as our information.

4. Buyers’ Agency: It is usually in your best interest to have an agent that is searching for you specifically and watching out for your interest. It does not cost you as the buyer to use an agent to assist you. The most common policy is that the seller pays both agents at closing So, when you phone the listing agent to see a property, you have just contacted the agent FOR THE SELLER. IF you do this, be sure to guard what you tell them UNLESS/UNTIL you have signed a Buyers’ Agency Agreement with them. Once you have signed with someone (hopefully Gates Management & Realty), they are assisting you to get the best property to suit your needs at the right price and in the right condition.

5. Local Knowledge: Our agents are either local or have been here for a long time. They love and appreciate the quaintness of our hometown atmosphere, but are also familiar with the medical facilities in the area, the arts/educational universities and the close access to the interstates to get to everything quickly. Our community is a great place start your adult life/family and/or to retire. Hillsborough, Efland, Mebane, Durham, Chapel Hill and surrounding communities – what a great place to live!
