Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
Very Helpful Agent
Andy is very good at listening to what we said our needs were. He showed homes that matched our needs and was honest with the details of each home. Andy was also very respectable to us, and of the homes we visited.— Dave and Delores McClenathan, Buyers
