How To Find The Best Real Estate Agent

If you’re considering the purchase of a home, you’ll need a real estate agent.  But what if you don’t know any real estate agents?  How do you learn where to find the best real estate agents in your area?  Below are some things you should look for when considering which real estate agent is right for you.

1.  Reputation.  Check their references, social media and online reviews for your real estate agent before deciding who you want to represent you.

2.  Licensed.  All real estate agents must be licensed, but the industry is somewhat unregulated.  You will need to make sure they have a license. Then you will need to confirm their license with your local real estate board.  The real estate licensing board is a reliable source of information that can also provide you with  complaints or the legal records of any licensed realtor.

3.  Experience.  The experience of the realtor you choose is of utmost importance.  An inexperienced realtor could cost you thousands of dollars due to their lack of working knowledge and experience that only comes with time.   Additionally, they need to possess technology skills, negotiating skills and the proper social skills needed to make winning deals while competing with other agents.

4.  Referrals.  The best way to find a reputable real estate agent is by asking friends, family and acquaintances for a referral.  This way you will have some type of confirmation about their performance based on your referrals previous experiences with them.

5.  Customer Service.  You need to find a real estate agent you feel comfortable with and one that you feel like you can easily talk with.   Any real estate agent you choose needs to display a positive attitude and show you that they will do everything in your best interest.

6.  Large Agency Or Small Agency?  A large real estate agency generally has access to more staff and state of the art tools and equipment.  Additionally, they usually  know more people due the number of staff members within their agency.  The more agents they have at their disposal equals more experience, more connections and more knowledge.   However, if you find a realtor in a small agency that has a multitude of experience and knowledge, don’t let the size of the agency stop you from making a good hiring decision.
