Buyer’s Roadmap
Choosing a Real Estate Agent

Choosing a professional real estate agent to guide you through the home buying process is a critical step in the process. You want a Realtor that is able to understand your goals, move at your pace, communicate effectively and give you all of the pertinent information that will aid in your decisions. A good Realtor will also never rush you or make you feel the slightest pressure to buy.

Before putting this large of an investment into an agent’s hands here are a few good questions to ask:

  1. Are you a full-time agent?
  2. Do you understand the transaction process from start to finish?
  3. Are you experienced with these types of transactions?
  4. How do you communicate effectively with clients?
  5. What kind of back office support do you have to assist you?
  6. Are you familiar with local areas and market trends?
  7. Are you a skilled negotiator?
  8. Do you seek to constantly educate yourself and gain knowledge in your industry?
  9. How will you serve my needs throughout the process?
  10. Do you frequently know about homes being listed before they are on the market?

These are just a few questions to work with, you may think of others as you move forward. It is important to select a Realtor that you can trust and puts your needs above their own. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, this is a big decision and not one that should be taken lightly. This process takes time and finding someone you are comfortable with is an important step that will pay dividends in the end.
