What to Look for in a Real Estate Agent

Buying or selling a home can be a difficult process to do on your own. Use this list of what to look for in a real estate agent will be very helpful. Finding a real estate agent is a process in and of itself and it’s important to know what to look for.

What to Look for in a Real Estate Agent: Qualifications

To get the most out of the process, you want to make sure you find a real estate agent who is properly qualified to help you. One of the best ways to determine their qualifications is if they have a current real estate license. A license means they have undergone training and taken an exam proving they understood their training. Agents need to renew their license periodically to prevent it from expiring. Make sure you find a real estate agent who has a current license that is valid in your state.

Personality

When working with a real estate agent, you want to find someone who is on the same page as you and will do what they can to help. Realtors can range from super excited and optimistic to very direct and honest. You should consider what personality would work best with you. It’s helpful to find someone who will be understanding of what you’re looking for and who will deliver that for you. There are plenty of realtor personality types that you will encounter, so as you look for a realtor you should take your time. Meet with a couple of potentials to see how their personalities differ and then decide which you would prefer to work with.

What to Look for in a Real Estate Agent: Reviews

It can be hard to find the right realtor, so in some cases, it may be helpful to look at reviews from their previous clients. These reviews can give you insight into a real estate agent and their process. You can learn things about them that might not be apparent when doing an interview. There are many real estate agent review sites you can visit to learn more. Try to find a real estate agent that has largely positive views and be wary of the negative reviews. Learn to distinguish between complaints about the overall process and the realtor.

Your real estate agent will be your guide as you either buy or sell a home. You want to make sure you have the best guidance possible. Take your time as you find a real estate agent and be aware of what you should be looking for throughout the process.
