You’ve decided to start looking for a new home! You’ve determined it’s the right time to sell your current house and shop for the perfect new place to settle into. Before you do any of that, you’ll want to find the perfect real estate agent to assist you.
So, how do you go about finding just the right one? How do you research for the right real estate agent? And how do you choose someone you’ll “click” with?
How to Find the Best Real Estate Agent
One of the best ways to find a top notch, experienced real estate agent is to ask around. Get referrals and talk with people in your community. This is a great way to find a real estate pro that is well liked and has a great track record of real estate transactions in the past. You can consider calling local chambers, asking your insurance agent or mortgage broker, and you may have a local REALTORS® Association that can guide you in the right direction.
You can also look online, and peruse agent websites and social media accounts to get a feel for who works in the area that you are looking to buy or sell in. You can easily narrow down your search to a few real estate agents that fit with what you’re looking for. While you are online taking a look at reviews, make note of anything you particularly liked. Then call any agents you are consider working with to set up a meeting.
Qualities You Want in a Real Estate Agent
Of course, you’ll want an agent who has all of these important qualities:
1. Is Trustworthy
2. Is Reliable
3. Is Experienced
4. A Good Communicator
5. Comfortable Negotiating
6. Familiar with your Home Shopping or Selling Location
7. Is Friendly
So, how can you tell? Your research online will give you a good start and help you compile a list, plus any referrals you might have received for local agents. But you won’t know for sure who is the right fit until you have a meeting with any agents you are considering hiring. The real indicator of finding an agent that you like comes from getting to know them, reviewing your situation and needs with them, and then going with how you feel.
