I do not have experience in NY but, I will say even if your agent is new to NACA, if your agent can help explain the process to your seller’s agent you will be in better shape. I was my agent’s first NACA client and my seller had never heard of NACA before. My agent though was very transparent to the listing agent about what to expect, the possible delays. duplication of paperwork and the requirements imposed on the buyer and the seller. The seller accepted this fact and realized that barring any unforeseen circumstances he had the sale in the bag so he just went with it.
David Lucas is a NYC NACA experienced realtor. D Lucas Realty 718-264-3018. I had a very pleasant experience with him and his staff.
However pls note that going through this process, you will be your own most valuable advocate. You will find that you will be the one keeping all the pieces to your puzzle fitting together, to keep your file moving along. There is no one person for everything, except you. Your realtor will help you find the perfect home for you, place offer, and get in contract, but it will be up to you to stay on top of your file and conditions. You will develop your own NACA team consisting of realtor/ Home inspector/ Contractors (if needed)/ attorney office/ Your MC/ CC and etc
I hope this helps. Good luck and keep us all posted how things turn out
