Choosing the right Realtor® can make a huge difference in your overall satisfaction with the home buying or selling process. When choosing a Realtor®, here are some important questions to ask of your candidates:
What professional designations do you/your Realtor hold?
How many years have you been in the real estate business?
What is you or your Team’s average volume per year?
How familiar are you with my area and my neighborhood?
Do you/your Team have a licensed office staff, or do you handle all of the background work?
What systems do you have in place that will allow you to keep in constant contact with me during the listing and the transaction?
What type of marketing do you/your Team do? Do you advertise your listings on multiple internet sites, provide a virtual tour, send numerous marketing pieces during the year and utilize many local print publications?
What type of networking do you do with your personal contacts, other Realtors, at conventions and in clubs or organizations?
Can you produce a list of references of people who have used your services?
How does your office handle “sign” calls on my home?
