REPUTATION ISN’T EVERYTHING – EXCEPT IN REAL ESTATE
Once you’ve committed to the decision of buying or selling a home, it’s always a good idea to obtain representation. Choosing the best real estate advisor for you is vitally important. A professional agent is meant to properly guide and represent you throughout your home journey. A successful agent with extensive experience and market knowledge is key to a smooth and rewarding home buying / selling experience.
DO YOUR RESEARCH
There are plenty of real estate agents out there, but only a few who are experts in their field. Since realtors represent you during a purchase or sale it is critical that the agent is qualified for the job. Essentially, you will want a real estate agent that has good relationships with other realtors. Positive relationships with other realtors breeds insightful conversations where agents may share information with each other. This can result in finding a Buyer before your home is even listed or finding the perfect home to buy before it even goes on the market.
Oftentimes, agents are specialized in particular neighborhoods. This is why research is key. By researching professional local real estate agents, you are better able to find realtors that know the communities best in which you are interested in. This is extremely beneficial as these agents are familiar with the area, have relationships with local agents, and know key features about an area that other agents may not.
Established, experienced agents typically have a list of recommended vendors they use for inspections, appraisals, photography, attorneys, etc. Their curated list of vendors could be the difference between selling your home in record time or keeping your home on the market. These agents can point you in the right direction of quality moving companies, staging companies, etc. making your life easier.
Behind every real estate license, is a person. It’s important to interview several agents to find the perfect match for you. Ask your co-workers, friends and family for realtor recommendations. Ask how their experiences with each realtor went. What did they love about it, what do they wish they would have done differently? By learning about other’s experiences, it will help you better navigate shopping for the real estate agent that is the best fit for you.
You will want to interview agents specialized in a particular area, price point, or lifestyle that best suits you.
