Finding the Right Agent

Back to Table of Contents

Not all agents are the same. The one of the most important attributes of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.

Some important questions to consider:

  • Is he/she a professional Realtor®?
  • Is this their full time job?
  • How many homes have they listed and sold?
  • How many years of experience do they have?
  • Are they a member of the MLS (Multiple Listing Service)?
  • Do they have references you can call?

Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
