Finding a great real estate agent means you'll be asking questions, so let's start building your list of questions:
Recommendations: Ask for recommendations from your friends, colleagues, and family. Most people who have had a positive experience working with an agency will be happy to explain their experience and why they think their agency is great.
Professional Recommendations: It is best to seek recommendations from real estate agents. Representatives of financial institutions, especially mortgage brokers, may be familiar with exceptional agents.
Experience: How long has the agent been in business? You need to find an agent who knows the local market well where you want to sell or buy your home.
Your agent must be realistic about pricing and marketing and portray you as a seller or a buyer. "If it sounds too good to be true…" so are real estate agents and services. Trust your powers of observation and intuition. When you combine it with the information you gather from your interview, you will be ready to make the right decision.
