Whether you’re planning to buy or sell a house, finding the right professional to represent you is essential. The right Realtor® guides clients through the entire process while keeping them informed and serving their best interests. Look for each of the characteristics below to know that you’ve chosen an agent you can trust.
3 Qualities of a Great Realtor
1. Relevant Experience
Becoming licensed as an agent requires taking classes and passing a test, but this education alone isn’t enough. You want to find an agent who has years of experience working in the industry. This know-how shows they understand the local area well and can handle the complex sales process with ease. Look for an agent who works full-time on sales or purchases like yours. Ask how long they have worked in your area and how many transactions like yours they have closed in the past year.
2. Effective Communication
An agent should reply to you quickly and communicate in the way you prefer. When you reach out to them for the first time, they should respond within 24 hours. Ask how they will keep you updated throughout the transaction and if they are willing to communicate in your preferred method of communication.
3. Strong First Impression
Your relationship with an agent is an important one, so you need to be comfortable with them. Schedule a consultation with the agent and trust the first impression that you get. If this is someone who seems knowledgeable and passionate, then you know you’ll enjoy working with them.
