Choose the Right Agent

Picking an agent is one of those critical issues that can cost or save you thousands of dollars. Select a real estate agent based on specific criteria, the competence of the person, and the services provided. Never base your choice on price or commission alone. A real estate agent has no control over your local market conditions, only the marketing plan. It would be wise to select a real estate agent first, then discuss price.

If you want to sell your home with the least amount of time and hassle and for the most amount of money with excellent service, your goal should be to work with the best agent you can find. When it comes to selling a home, the most important thing you can do is have someone on your side looking out for your best interests.

Good real estate agent will provide quality and customized service targeted toward your needs with continual and timely communication, accessibility and responsiveness.

Are real estate agents worth the money they are paid? It all depends on what the agent does for you. An agent who is worth commission will have capacity for consultation, advice and information with personal and company commitment to caring customer service. A good agent is an expert in effective advertising and will cover all the costs as part of his or her service to you.

Good agents take full responsibility for overseeing your real estate transaction so that it proceeds as smoothly as possible. They know the limits of their professional responsibilities and they never try to be decision makers. Seller is the decision maker in the real estate transaction and a top agent will never try to take that role. If an agent is representing you in the real estate transaction, he or she should advise you but never decide for you.

We believe that the key to a successful and pleasant real estate experience lies in the professionalism of the real estate agent. Working with a poor agent, on other hand, could be worse than having no agent at all.
