Please don’t hesitate to interview prospective real estate agents. This gives both the agent and the client a chance to get acquainted and address specific needs.

Will work for you not their pocket book.
If you are selling a house, look for an agent who…
Has a solid marketing plan
Has photographers on staff
Has current listings online you can view for reference
Will discuss and suggest different pricing strategies
Can think like a buyer and share tips that will help your home show to its best advantage
Has the correct connections online to get your house to the world
And no matter what, choose an agent who…

Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest transactions of your life. Don’t just choose the agent who has the lowest commission or suggests the highest sale price to get your business. These agents are likely to over promise and under deliver. The smart choice is always an experienced real estate professional that knows their market, is successful at closing sales and has the references to prove it.
