DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Ask family and friends for recommendations. Also try meeting and interviewing a few REALTORS® so that you can understand how they do business, what makes them unique and who would be the best person for the job.
COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANT
It is recommended to choose a REALTOR® who really listens to what you want, knows how to translate those ideas into action and who keeps you informed during the process. Responsiveness and offering timely advice can avoid missed opportunities. Select someone with a communication style that works for you.
Be rigorous in your selection approach and ask the tough questions. Try to understand how your sale or purchase fits into their business. Make sure they understand your priorities.
ASK FOR REFERENCES
Talking to their past clients helps you to gain a better and more authentic understanding of how well a REALTOR® performed. Asking what portion of business comes from referrals or repeat business is also a good indicator of client satisfaction.
