I believe that selecting an agent to assist with your real estate needs is an incredibly important, though often overlooked, step in the real estate process. You should feel comfortable dealing with and spending time with your agent, as the process generally takes longer than just a few years ago. If a personality/style clash impedes communication, both you and your agent will become very frustrated. Be honest with what you want in an agent and expect the same from the agent you select, as they will act in many roles such as a counselor, friend, and sounding board throughout the process. My wife and I concentrate on trying to understand what our clients really want and need before we start viewing homes or planning an open house, as the investment at the beginning of the process will pay off handsomely in the end with a successful, stress-free transaction.
