How do I select the right real estate agent?

Asked by Trulia Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV Wed Oct 24, 2012

I have started by asking family and friends if they can recommend an agent. Obviously I will cross-reference my suggestions with Trulia's directory here: http://www.trulia.com/voices/directory/

Anything else I should consider?

In real estate, "the devil is in the details." That's why I call listing agents about a property, and see how much information they readily make available to me. If I list five items I'd like, and they can't be bothered to respond...easy answer! On the other hand, the best agents are never too busy to spend time to educate potential clients. I've always had this indicator carry forward into the client relationship. All the best to you.

Are you buying or selling? Different skill sets needed to get maximum results, money money selling, lower price buying.

Leigh-Jo gave a great list. I'd also stress that you want someone who is committed to educating you about the real estate process and who you enjoy being with. You will spend a lot of time with an agent when you are buying a home -- maybe 100 hours or more. So make sure that person is engaging, knowledgeable and committed to being a real partner with you in this big life decision. Best of luck!

He or she should:

1) Answer their phone
2) Reply to texts
3) Respond to e-mails
4) Be knowledgeable of the area that you're interested in
5) Be someone you can get along with

These are just a few things. Talk to a few, see which one you connect with the most.
