Choosing the Right Real Estate Agent for You

Choosing the right real estate agent is one of the most important decisions you will make when buying or selling a home. A good agent can make the process smoother and less stressful, while a bad one can leave you feeling frustrated and disappointed. Here are some tips on how to choose the right real estate agent for you.


  1. Look for experience

Experience is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a real estate agent. Look for an agent who has been in the business for at least a few years and has a proven track record of success. An experienced agent will have a better understanding of the local market and will be able to provide valuable insights and advice. Luckily with our team, you’re in good hands. We have combined experience to help us through any hurdles we may encounter.


  1. Check their credentials

Make sure the agent you choose is licensed and has a good standing with the state regulatory agency. You can check an agent’s credentials on your state’s real estate commission website. Look for additional certifications or designations that indicate specialized training or expertise. All of our agents are licensed and RealtorsⓇ registered with NAR. Our team also was awarded Realtors of Distinction – meaning we’ve completed additional continued education hours to keep up to date with real estate and be even more equipped to help you. 


  1. Get referrals from friends and family

Ask friends, family, and neighbors for recommendations. If someone you know has recently bought or sold a home, ask them about their experience with their agent. If they had a positive experience, it’s likely that you will too. Our team has had many clients refer us and review us on Zillow and our website. 


  1. Read online reviews

Check online review sites like Zillow, Google, or Yelp to see what other clients have said about the agent you are considering. Look for agents with a high number of positive reviews and take note of any red flags. Our team has a solid star rating on platforms like Zillow. 


  1. Interview multiple agents

Don’t be afraid to interview multiple agents before making a decision. Ask about their experience, credentials, marketing strategy, and communication style. Choose an agent who you feel comfortable communicating with and who understands your goals and priorities. 


  1. Consider their marketing plan

Ask the agent about their marketing plan for your home if you are selling or for finding you a home if you are buying. A good agent should have a solid plan for reaching potential buyers or finding the right property for you. If you’re listing your home, our marketing plan stretches across multiple online platforms and we tailor each home sale to your needs. 


  1. Evaluate their communication skills

Good communication is key to a successful real estate transaction. Make sure the agent you choose is responsive, keeps you updated on the status of your transaction, and is easy to reach when you have questions or concerns. We firmly believe that communication is key – our team will reach you when it is convenient for you and we respond promptly. Time is of the essence.
