Consumers: Qualities of a Good Buyer's Agent

By
Real Estate Agent with Aksland Real Estate

There are tons of real estate agents out there.  Many people are innundated with the choice as to which agent to choose when buying a home . Here are some hints for the consumer to realize the difference between an average and a great agent:

1.  The agent will present to you a list of homes in a binder of some sorts that lists all the homes that you will be looking at.

2. The agent will have no homes that do not meet your original criteria.  For example, if you specify at least 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, there should not be any homes that are 1 bedroom or 2 bedrooms on the list.

3. They will be dressed professionally.  A great agent will be dressed for success. They may not be in a suit, but they will be dressed to impress.

4. They will be on time.  Your time is important, any agent that is late does not value your time.

5. They will return calls the same day. Realtors cannot talk during appointments, but they should get back to you in a reasonable amount of time that same day.

6. They will understand your taste very quickly. Immediately after seeing a few homes, the agent should revisit the list and eliminate home styles that you do not like.

Matthew - When we select Realtors to work with, we look at many of your pointers.  What I've found in the past was that the attire was the most accurate predictor of the success of the agent.  Well dressed agents tend to attract well dressed clients.  The more professional they appear, the better credit their clients generally have.

I agree with that. I think the more professional they are, the better clients they attract.

I found your post by searching and thank you for your points - now fast forward a few years and I would add use of technology to make the transaction easier and smoother for the buyer client ( docu sign, email alerts ( vs. binder) and texting.  We are "a changing".... Warm Regards from chilly Ann Arbor.
