Formerly, brokers were the “gatekeepers” for information. They had access to listings, and Buyers needed them to find the listings. In turn, Sellers needed brokers to expose their listings to other brokers.
The Internet changed that, as it gives consumers direct access to property information.
The “gatekeeper” role of the broker has changed significantly. Today the value of the Broker is knowledge. Customers find the listings, but they seek assistance from Brokers because of their knowledge.
