One thing for me is an agent willing to allow me to look in several different areas perhaps in different states. My goal is a place that meets my specifications with a certain distance of a V.A. hospital. I would prefer virginia, but light consider all other southeastern states.
Know your area. Tell me the truth about an area when I ask. Help me go with a low ball offer and make it work.
Do not tell me a house is 2,000 square feet. It is useless information. Tell me it is a 24x40 ranch, a 2 story 26x32 or whatever it is. The real numbers are what I go by.
Mostly I will be getting updates from realtor.com. I do not need your updates as they are the same (right?)
When I find something I want to consider it will mean a long drive. I will go for only a few properties. I need detailed local information. The blog below shows much of what I would want to know.
All I want is a simple tour, detailed information ready for me, and a quick closing.
p.s. no advertiser paid recommendations either. Tell me who really is the hardest inspector to pass a house. I do not care that there is some peeling paint. It is to minor to care about. I want to know it is there however.
I use fax/email, communicate via text messages or just email with many/most of my clients. I skype with them while I show them stuff on the computer.
I would also say the ability to adapt. Think outside the box in order to close a deal. It doesn't have to apply to tech but all too many agents don't know all the financing options out there (ie. 203k loans etc).
