Tips for Choosing the Right Real Estate Agent

OK, so you’re ready to go house shopping, or you’re ready to sell your current home… either way its time to find the best real estate agent for the job! Take it from the closing agent, having the right realtor can make a world of difference in the results of your endeavor.

There are literally hundreds of real estate offices and thousands of real estate agents to choose from in South Florida. Picking the right agent is a very important decision that you should make before you buy or sell.

You’ll certainly want someone who is responsible and committed to helping you achieve your goals. You’ll want an agent that specializes in either buyers or sellers, or at least has a track record for working with clients similar to yourself.

If you are selling a home, you’ll want a realtor that specializes in the local area, knows the community details, and has experience with comparable properties.

If you are looking to purchase, you should look for a realtor that is an experienced and skilled negotiator, an organized professional, and someone who understands fair market pricing and how to just the right house at an optimal price. Patience is an important characteristic of a buyer’s realtor.

Where to Find a Realtor?

First, ask friends, family, and co-workers if they can refer someone that they have worked with that resulted in a great experience.

If you are moving to another state, ask your local agent to connect you with reputable real estate office or agent in the area in which you are moving.
Look online! There are dozens of websites that are good starting points in learning who is available, how to contact them, and their areas of expertise.

Remember, interview agents as if you were hiring for a job position. Your journey into buying or selling a home is an important one, so ask a lot of questions and most importantly look for an agent that you feel comfortable with, who is attentive to your needs and gives you the sense that he or she will get the job done.
