How to Choose Your Real Estate Agent

Not every Real Estate agent is right for everyone and their situation.  Choosing the Real Estate agent that will work best with you doesn’t have to be hard, you just need to ask the right questions. 

The first step is to talk to friends and family who will give you an honest recommendation about someone they’ve worked with.  That will at least give you a starting point that you can then meet with and find the right agent.  Again, not every Realtor is right for every situation, so take your time when choosing who will become the person to help make your real estate dreams a reality.

FACT vs. FICTION

When  it comes to online marketing, many agents will try to convince you they have the “secret sauce”.

FACT:  Every agent’s listing is syndicated out by the MLS to hundreds, if not thousands of web sites.

TRUTH:   If a buyer is house shopping online and your home matches their criteria, it would be almost impossible for them not to find your home.

The best Real Estate agent is not defined as the biggest team or top producer.  The best agent for you is someone who will work for your goals, not theirs.  You want an agent you feel comfortable with, who you can trust and build a professional relationship with.  If you don’t feel comfortable and trust the agent you hire, it doesn’t matter how good they are, you WILL have a bad experience with them. 

Take the time to ask questions during your meeting. Get a feel of how they interact with you, are they really listening to your needs or pushing you to sign a contract? If you feel pressured, that’s not a great start is it?

I don’t treat my clients like a transaction. I look at the long term goal of having a client for life. It’s all about you not me. But, if I don’t make the cut, I am ok with that too. If I am not the right “fit” for you, someone else will be.
