I’ll admit that I’m a little biased, but I wholeheartedly believe that everyone needs to have an amazing real estate agent on their side. But there are tons of agents out there! So, how do you cut through the noise and find an agent who’s going to work for you?
Here are 4 simple tips that will help you find the right real estate agent to represent your best interests:
- Know what you want. All real estate agents are not created equal. They have varying degrees of expertise, work ethic, and specialties. Before you choose, make sure that you’re hiring an agent that aligns with your market, values, and niche.
- Get recommendations from your network. Referrals are a great way to find a real estate agent! People aren’t going to recommend someone they hate working with.
- Look for someone active and experienced. You want your agent to be knowledgeable about the area. Check out their social media and give them a search on Google to see what they’re up to. You can also ask for a list of recent transactions to get a better idea of the types of homes they sell and in what areas.
- Find someone who meets your needs (and who you like). Buying or selling a home is stressful. You’re going to want a real estate agent who can keep you from climbing the walls and stressing out. If you don’t feel comfortable with someone or don’t think they’ll be there to talk you down, they’re not the right agent for you.
