Choosing a Real Estate Agent

By
Real Estate Agent with 214.-317.1964 www.janusREgroup.com

Having a real estate agent to help you out is essential when aiming for a quick and good deal, whether you are buying or selling your home or property.  Selling your house is not just about placing a “for sale” sign in your lawn or placing your house in the classified ads.   

There are many real-estate agents out there, how do you choose the right person?

Hold interviews

The best way of getting to know an agent is by talking to them personally.  You could directly discuss with them what their qualifications, ask about their previous transactions, and seeing if your personalities would match.   

Qualifications and history

Check if they have enough experience and expertise, especially in your location. 

Referrals

Ask your friend, family or relatives if they would be able to recommend somebody.  Personal experiences will give you a good indicator of what to expect. 

Customer service

Your agent maybe good, but they may be difficult to contact.  That would surely create problems.  How the agent communicates with clients show how they value the property and how serious they are.

Contacts and access to tools

Your real-estate agent should have access to Multiple Listing Service (MLS).   Also, a web presence in on other networks will give you a well rounded experience.

I believe referrals is huge when picking a Realtor. Google the agents name to see if they have embraced social media.

Janus, interesting points how to choose a Realtor. My take no matter what the referring source is, Google, Friends, Active Rain, Trulia, Zillow....it all boils down to the face to face interview. Are you and the seller/buyer a good fit if not...Oh Well
