Selecting a Real Estate Agent
If you are like most people, you already know a real estate agent – and maybe even a couple. You may have a friend or two who is a sales associate. Your parents or relatives may have recommendations. In fact, as soon as you start letting people know that you’re interested in buying or selling a house, you’ll be surprised at the number of people who will contact you.
And that doesn’t begin to count the number of sales associates who will call once you begin browsing online and registering on various web sites.
Obviously, we believe a Real Living Sales Professional is the best person to handle your real estate needs. Our Sales Professionals have been trained and supervised, they know how to listen to your wants and needs and they know how to get you the answers you need to make the right decisions.
But even if you don’t use a Real Living Sales Professional (we’ll be sad you don’t), there are a few basics we hope you’ll understand as you move forward with your transaction.
Most important, you need someone whose judgment you trust, who you feel comfortable working with, and who will put you and your needs before the transaction.
If you ever sense that you are “just another transaction” or “just a gateway to a commission check,” you have the wrong agent. If you have a Sales Professional who knows the market and understands your needs, then you have the right agent.
