Hi M and thanks for your post.

I could not agree more with my pal Allyson's advice. Look at the Realtor's profiles, read some of the answers they have to questions asked here on Trulia, find out the areas where they practice and sell, get a feel for their knowledge base and then call a few of them to interview to see who you like. My clients are all usually referrals, and I have many repeat buyers and sellers. Because I offer rebates of 1-1.5% of the house price to buyers, I work with a lot of buyers. As for offers, we all write strong offers, but an offer is only as strong as the buyer can and is willing to pay for a home and I am not in favor of creating buyer frenzy for any home.

So call a few of the agents listed here for assistance. From my experience answering more than 1500 questions on Trulia, I have seen the most astute, accurate and thoughtful comments and answers from Allyson Alessandrini, Terri Vellios and Charles Butterfield. If you want a discount agent and money back in your sale then that would be Flavio or me. And if you are buying a condo or home in a homeowners association, then the expert in that category would be me as I have spent more than 20 years working with community developers and planning homeowners associations. So there you have it, lots of choices and I hope I have given you some recommendations to get you started on your way.

Good luck!
