If an agent works with a Buyer and they have a duty to the Buyer to get them the best price and terms, how can they accomplish that same duty to the Seller at the same time?
Interview your agent and discuss what they do for you, how they will market, their experience, what they do that is different from the rest, how will they communicate, etcâ€¦ Then hire the agent you trust that will take your best interest into all consideration, and the one you believe is the best fit for you.
Each agent has a handful of buyers.
As a listing agent you want each and everyone of those agents on your side.
An agent who sees the other Realtors as allies and NOT COMPETITORS toward their listings is an agent that a seller should want on their side.
I believe that you need a "Full Service Agent" who knows todays Marketing Strategies and also familiar with the properties in your neighborhood ie; just sold, just listed, expired, etc......If Realtors are NOT out with buyers and showing homes how well do they really know the competition and the market....food for thought!
I am a full service Realtor and a Top Producer on Staten Island, if you would like to set up an appointment to meet with me I can be reached 718-612-4924.
The bait that is used to reel in buyers is the marketing of your house. There are two kinds of agents, selling agents and MARKETING agents.
I think the Realtor you interviewed is right on and I would have hired that person on the spot!
