Choosing And Hiring A Real Estate Agent
Reputation and experience matter in real estate. Don’t trust the most important purchase of your life to a new, part time, or otherwise inexperienced real estate agent. You simply have too much to lose and everything to gain by working with the right agent. When looking for a real estate professional to help you, know that above all else, good agents put their clients first. Your agent is there to get you what you want and to put your interests ahead of their own in order to help you achieve your goals.
It’s equally important to find an agent who can get the job done. Although your uncle's friend may dabble in real estate, ask yourself if he's really the person most qualified to help you with perhaps the most important asset you own. Personal referrals are also good, but only if they're based on relevant criteria. For example - just because a work colleague had a good experience with an agent when she purchased her condo doesn’t mean that agent is right for you to sell your home.
Reputation and experience matter in real estate as does a proven track record of successful closings. At Open Door Residential my team and I have that proven track record of success that you can rely on when selling your home.
