great real estate agentThere are lots of agents in the market claiming to want to work for you and are ready to “whatever it takes”! But how do you know when you’ve found the right one? What should you look for in a real estate agent?

We have put together our Top 5 signs of a great real estate agent!

They should ALWAYS come highly recommended…

Before choosing a real estate agent, ask your friends and family for the names of reputable agents they have recently used. Take your time to read the reviews of those agents online, and see what people are saying about them.  An experienced agent should have plenty of 5-star reviews on the different real estate sites. Do your homework and research a few agents before you settle on one. Remember, you will be committed to this agent for months at a time while they attempt to sell your home, so you need to be sure you are working with someone you can count on!

They should be tech-savvy…

Remember that people who are seeking to buy houses use the internet as a medium. Be sure that your agent has a good online presence on the major real estate websites. Your agent should know the best ways to get your listing seen, the best platforms to use, and how to use photography to sell the house. Apart from this, communicating through texts or emails should not be a problem for them. How they present themselves online, is how they will present your house. If their profiles are basic with any missing information or photos, they could also handle your listing the same way. Make sure they have the right skills to help present your property in the best way.

They should ALWAYS be working. At least they appear to be…

Real estate can be cut-throat.  Your agent must be someone who works very hard, with big goals and a desire to achieve them. The way you do one thing is the same way you will do everything, so make sure your agent is a dream chaser. They should have you in mind, thinking about different things for the good of your property, and contacting you even in the middle of the night about it (by email of course). They should be updating you and checking up on you regularly when new buyers are interested in your property.

They know the neighborhood…

It’s even better if your agent lives in the neighborhood. They will have a good knowledge of the neighborhood and this will help them to market your home better. With an understanding of the local demographics, they will know exactly what to look for in a home. Knowing all this will help them answer any question that a buyer asks them. If they love the area, they will enthusiastically convey to others why they will too.

They take it seriously…

Your agent should be professional. A person who keeps appointments and is always punctual goes a long way. Your agent should have this quality, even though they are probably frantic, running around, and looking scattered. Time management is critical, so work with an agent who manages their time well, and who has your best interest at heart. They should be focused on you and your needs when you are meeting. They should constantly update you on the interest in your home, and what they are doing to actively sell your house!

Remember, at the end of the day, real estate agents are salesmen. They want to sell your home to make their commission. Make sure you do not fall for false promises or over inflated listing prices. Instead, look for agents who are knowledgeable, have great reviews and who are able to educate and walk you through the entire selling process!
