Today, I’m talking about choosing the right real estate agents. How do you know when one is the right fit for you and your family? There are a few questions you should ask.!
Do you work full-time or part-time? Part-time agents typically don’t work at night or show homes on the weekend. They’re less flexible, and might be less dedicated to the trade compared to someone employed full-time in the industry. Many clients need someone adjustable to work outside of business hours, after a client is done with the work day or week.
How many homes have you sold in the past year and at which price points? This will speak to an agent’s success. Additionally, if you’re looking in a lower range, an agent that sells multi-million luxury properties won’t be your best option. They need to be on the same wavelength as you!
How long have you been in the business? There’s nothing wrong with new agents. Some of them are serviced-oriented and hungry for work. However, these newer agents should have a team behind them. A team will guide an agent if they have trouble negotiating, or at any other point of the transaction, to serve your best interests and needs.
