10 Ways to check out a Real Estate Agent
1.Go to an open house. Observe the agent there. Are they selling the house or them self?
2.Interview the agent at your house. Ask questions. Do you feel comfortable with the person? Do they know their market and the job?
3.Ask for a Resume. What qualifies them to help you sell or buy? Are they full time?
4.Ask for a list of homes they have sold. The proof is in the pudding. Nothing beats experience.
5.Call the office and act like a buyer. Who answers the phone? Can you reach the agent or do you get a voice mail? If you were a buyer, would you call this agent again?
6.Look at their listings on-line. Today’ pros are using professional photos, videos, virtual tours, interactive sites, QR codes and lots of other things. Is this agent stuck in the past?
7.Google them. Everything you want to know about them is on-line.
8.Ask them, “How do you sell homes?” Do you get a canned answer or an answer tailored for your situation? Did this person do their homework?
9.Ask for references from closed clients. Do they have references or recommendations from people who actually used them to close on a home?
10.Go with your gut. Trust your feelings. You won’t lie to yourself.

Good Evening,

A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door. And the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.


This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.

Please give a call at 917-402-4383 when you have the opportunity.

Good afternoon,

I recommend that you consider working with a certified buyers representative who will have the knowledge and experience to guide you through the entire process, negotiate on your behalf and work towards your best interest- always. You may also want to think about choosing an Agent who does lots of business in the area(s) you're looking to relocate to.

Make sure you look for a reputable real estate office and real estate professional. Visit Trulia and review Agent recommendations. This will help you make a more informed decision when choosing your Realtor. You may also ask around and see which Realtors your friends, family or colleagues may recommend based on their own personal experience.

Ask people you may know for referrals; or contact and interview a few agents from different realty companies, then choose the one you like best...

You can ask friends or colleagues for recommendation based on their past experience. Online recommendations are also very helpful but can sometimes be skewed.

Good luck.

A good place to start would be the Find an Agent tab on the top of each Trulia page. Enter the area you're interested in and you'll get a list of active Realtors in that area, You can read their reviews.

Check out the link below, it will guide you on how to interview and evaluate agents. It unfortunate but in general the public doesn't spend nearly enough time looking for a Realtor to work with, they usually just take the first one they speak to. Given that this is typically the largest financial transaction a person is going to make you'd think they'd take a little time to find the best person to work with particularly as it doesn't cost anything but a little time. Trust me the difference between the top agents and the rest is more extreme than night and day.

I wish you good luck and happy house (and Realtor) hunting.
