5 Traits To Look For When Choosing A Realtor
1. They Communicate
As a house buyer, it can be stressful dealing with an agent who’s not a great communicator. The real estate market is time sensitive, so you need an agent who will let you know quickly where you stand with your current buying situation. Our agents return phone calls and emails at Lightning Speed.
2. They Listen To You and Understand What You Want
Great communication begins with great listening. Be weary of an agent that does not have a desire to listen to you. If you find yourself listening to the realtor, more than you are talking to him, that is typically not a good sign.
Our Agents help you get specific about exactly what you are looking for in your new home.
3. They Are Experienced
You might be asking… How would I know if they were experienced or not? (Scroll to the bottom for the answer)
You want someone who knows the local market and neighborhoods intimately, (School Zoning, Traffic Patterns, Proximity to shopping, etc…) and will walk you through the buying process as smoothly as possible.
4. They Do Not Make You Sign Disclosure Forms
Often times, realtors will have, their soon to be clients, sign a form called a “Disclosure Form”. Unless you are comfortable doing so, do not sign one of these, because a great realtor knows no one will match the individual attention to detail they are willing to provide to each client. Being a good agent means not pressuring a soon to be client into doing something they don’t want to do. It is the realtors job to continue to build trust and rapport until closing. Great realtors get paid by doing a great job, not simply because they had someone sign a commitment form.
5. Offer an Initial Consultation for Free
An initial consultation is an important part of the home-buying process. A good realtor will offer a free initial consultation to build trust and rapport with you, the buyer. After all, they will be the one helping you find a place to call home! An experienced real estate agent knows that an initial consultation is just as important to the agent as it is to the client, and will therefore offer this service free of charge.
Now, you might be thinking…That all sounds great! But how can I find an agent like that?
