Many factors add to the success of buying and selling homes; therefore, before you begin asking your friends or hunting online, I have some tips that can help you select the perfect agent.

Tips for choosing the perfect Realtor(R)

Tips for picking a Realtor® to suit your needs:

 Do your research on websites that agent reviews like Zillow.

√ Get recommendations from family and friends who you trust. Just make sure to ask those who have recently bought or sold a home.

 Look for a agent who specializes in what you need. If you need a million dollar listing, look for a million dollar agent. If you are looking for a home in the $200,000 range, look for agents who typically buy and sell in that range.

Outline your expectations and needs in advance so there are not any surprises down the road.

 Never let your family or friends in on the process. A real estate transaction is serious and you don’t want to jeopardize your relationship with family or friends.

 Be sure of what you want and what you need before searching for the perfect agent.

√ Try not to hire an agent who is trying to sell you a property they represent. They may not be perfect for your needs if they are trying to fill the needs of the seller at the same time.
