THERE ARE SO MANY AGENTS, HOW DO YOU CHOOSE?

KNOW WHAT YOU WANT

There are hundreds of questions you can ask agents when you are interviewing them. If you are thinking of selling, interview 2 or 3 agents. See who fits your needs and who you feel good about.

To avoid being overwhelmed at the agent selection stage of the home selling process, ask yourself some questions: 

  • Do you want a full time agent or a part time agent? 
  • Ask when is the agent available to work. 
  • Do you want a listing agent who collects listings, knowing some but not all will sell or an agent with fewer listings who lists to get them sold?
  • How do YOU like to communicate? Phone? Text? E-mail? How often do you want progress reports?
  • What are your expectations? To be very involved or have a take charge agent? A fast sale? Multiple offers? Above market value selling price?
  • Do you want print advertising? Internet marketing? How do you want the house shown?
  • 4. Do your due diligence...STOP, LOOK, LISTEN.
  • Are yard signs neat, clean, visible? Do they stand out? Talk to people
  • you trust. What has their experience been with agents they have used?
  • Does an agent have testimonials from past clients?
  • Does an agent have a website? What 3rd party websites do they
  • participate in?
  • Make a list and compare agent answers:
  • How long have you been in business? 
  • How many listings do you generally service at one time? 
  • How many home did you sell last calendar year?
  • And this year to date? 
  • How do you feel about days on the market?
  • And price reductions?
  • Can you explain the appraisal process?

Once you know what is important to you, you will have a much better chance to find the right agent. Remember the interviewing process is a two way street. Not all agents want all listings.The goal is to get it sold, not just have a sign in the yard.

I want to list most homes for whom I do a listing presentation. I’ll be happy to answer your questions honestly so we can all move forward separately or mutually with our goals.

Remember, not all agents are Realtors®.
