The best way to find an real estate agent is to ask family and friends and interview prospects. Remember, pick someone you feel you can relate to and knows the area. The agent you select will get you results with integrity. If you don't know the questions you should be asking, feel free to contact me so I can provide you with some assistance.
Ask your trusted friends, family or co-workers of agents they have worked with. Find out why they liked the agent. Then do your own research, interview at least 5 agents and ask questions that are important to you. In my opinion it's not about how long an agent has been licensed it's how they do business and what kind of personal service they can give you. If they are too busy or only work part- time they may not be able to fill the needs you have. Choose someone that you can communicate honestly with, remember you will be spending a lot of time with this person. Best of luck to you and happy home hunting. Remember it's a great time to buy!
I'm a mortgage broker and any type of referral is more than likely your best source for finding a good agent or mortgage broker for that matter. Apart of the home buying process is finding a professional who will educate you during the process and explain things you may need clarity on. If you are in search for a mortgage broker I would like a chance to speak with you and get the process started for you, my most recent loan closed in 3 weeks my job is to make the loan process as simple as possible thanks for your time.

It sounds like you are on the right track. I definitley agree with Deborah's advise. You may want to ask questions of the Realtor's like, how long have you been in the business? Do you specialize in any paticular area? What days and times are you available to work with me? What type of technology do you use that will help me in my home search? Do you have references?
If you are a first time homebuyer or haven't owned a principal residence within the past 3 years, you should also know about the tax credit that is being offered, however, you MUST settle no later than Nov 30, 2009 to take advantage of this.
It is information like this, that you should be able to depend on your agent to give you and to be able to keep you in a position of being an informed buyer.
I'm sure you will get many responses to your question, but if you would like to speak with me regarding your step into homeownership and interview me as a possible Realtor, I'd be more than happy to speak with you and help you. I am very familiar with PG Co., as I grew up there and have lived in the general area all of my life.
I wish you the very best in your search!
