Picking the right real estate agent for you is a big decision, and a very important one. Finding someone who is best for you and will help you find your perfect home helps make the moving process a lot easier. Use these tips when deciding who to hire as your agent.
Check their references
Contact previous customer’s of a real estate agent to get a firsthand description of how the real estate agent handled other people looking for a home. Review online to see if they have any comments about their service as well.
Find a real estate agent with credentials specified towards you
Real estate agents have specialties, given to them based on taking classes in a certain area of real estate sales. Examples of titles listed after an agent’s name include CRS, ABR, and SRES which all give an agent additional training and skill in the subject of real estate.
Check their experience level
Obviously the longer the agent has been in the real estate game, the more knowledge they will have about real estate. Someone with more experience has greater knowledge of how to match you with the perfect house. If possible, do not settle for a new agent.
Check their availability
Find out how many customer’s they are servicing. Make sure it is enough to show that they are talented and have experience, but not so many that they will not be able to devote a proper amount of time to you.
Ask about awards
Research if they have been awarded with any special professional awards or prizes. The National Association of Realtors lists some of the highest rated real estate agents in the country.
Mirror their listings with your preferences
See what types of homes the real estate agent helped people sell or buy to help find a similar match to your home you are selling or buying. Compare the prices of their listings with the type of home you are looking to sell or buy.
