Agent or Broker?

Dear friends!

Due to circumstances and frequently asked questions, we believe it is right to tell you about the features of the work of leasing agents or buyer's agents. Many of you do not understand the difference between leasing agents or buying agents and brokers, by mistake, many consider these concepts to be related, but this is not so. A leasing agent or a buyer's agent is not a broker! The difference between a leasing agent or a buyer's agent from a broker is as follows:

The Broker:

  • The broker represents his personal interests. His goal is to earn as much money as possible by reselling other people's assets often without appropriate authority.
  • The broker adds a hidden commission to the seller’s price, which, as a rule, is 2.5%-10% of the seller’s price and requires the return of this commission from the owner.
  • Several brokers may participate in aircraft transactions, such a chain of brokers forms a high added value and creates confusion.
  • The broker does not bear any responsibility to buyers and sellers.
  • The broker does not guarantee a result and does not evaluate risks in case of failure.
  • A broker can be an individual without sufficient knowledge and competence.

The Agent:

  • The agent is an official, authorized person who represents the customer and lobbies his interests in negotiations with the owners and shareholders.
  • The agent works for a fixed amount of remuneration, significantly lower than broker's remuneration, without reference to interest and hidden fees.
  • The agent works with owners whose ownership rights are confirmed and do not work with intermediaries.
  • The agent is legally responsible to customers within its authority.
  • The agent guarantees the result and withdraws authority in case of failure.
  • The agent is only a legal entity that has a sufficient number of professional employees.

Now you can distinguish a leasing agent or a buyer's agent from a broker.
