For information about properties that are on the market or coming on the market in Burlingame, Hillsborough and surrounding areas. Give the Denise Laugesen Team a call, we will provide you with our client list!!! Our clients always walk away feeling well represented!!! Let us make your dream home a reality!
I would also check with that agents broker. Once you have found the agent you are looking for, ask for phone numbers from past clients so you will know what to expect.
If you are looking for a listing agent, the difference between a good agent and a great agent is their marketing plan, their knowledge, and their negotiating ability.
Whatever you do, do not go with the agent who promises to get you the most money without a clear cut plan on how they plan to achieve their goal. The worst thing a seller can do is to over price their home.
Whether you are buying or selling, pick an agent who will communicate well with you. Someone who will tell it like it is, not tell you what you want to hear.
You might also want to ask friends and relatives if they have had a good experience with a certain agent.
Good luck W.

All great suggestions below. My recommendation is to interview at least three agents & talk with their clients as to what their experience was like working with their agent. Just because an agent doesn't have negative records with the DRE doesn't mean that you will get good representation.
It as easy as typing in the agents name...
This site is good for making the public records search easy...http://publicrecords.onlinesearches.com/California.htm
Hope this helps a little, Dunes
The go to place for any disciplinary action would be the Dept of Real Estate's website: http://www.dre.ca.gov. Click on the "Consumers" tab, and then click "License Status Check", and type in the agent's last name, comma, first name.
Our local real estate board, SAMCAR (San Mateo County Association of Realtors), has a Judicial committee which has information about disciplinary issues for particular Realtors, if any. 650-696-8200.
Another excellent source is Yelp.com. Community members can post reviews about restaurants, mechanics, businesses, and, of course, Realtors.
But your best bet is to contact the local Real Estate Commission to see if there are any marks on their record.
