Finding a good real estate agent is an essential part of a painless real estate transaction. But for most people, finding a good agent is either a hit or miss. So how do you find a good real estate agent who will work hard for you? By following these tips.
Most real estate agents stay in business because of the referrals given to them by past satisfied clients. People refer their favorite agents to their friends, customers, neighbors, family, and coworkers. So ask the people around you if they have used a real estate agent recently and if they had had a good experience with that person. Successful agents make customer satisfaction their number one goal so they can keep the referrals coming. Try to find an agent who goes above and beyond to help satisfy their clients.
Have you tried a quick Google search? Try Googling the top real estate agents in your area and look up the profiles of the individuals you are thinking about working with. Agents who are experienced will tell you about their experiences online. But this is not to discourage you from seeking out new agents either. Newer agents tend to have more time to spend with you and will be extremely eager to sell you a home. Look at the customer reviews on how they handle the home buying process.
Try tracking your neighborhood signs. Notice who is on the sign and how long it takes for the sign to be taken down. This could be an insight to how hard that agent works to sell the houses in their charge as well as how the market is going. Visit some open houses in the area to get to know the agents in a non-threatening working environment. Get business cards and make some notes on how the agent handles the clients. How is the agent showing the home? Are they polite and informative? Are they handing out professional promotional items on the home? Are they ignoring people? These are all signs you should be looking around for.
