Suppose that agent does foreclosures and gets 50 to 75 cents on the dollar for your home. Still interested??
Yes, you should interview several agents and focus on their marketing.
You def. don't want someone who works on volume alone..... but try to meet them when they're on the job, if possible....
Call me and I'll arrange an introduction with a dynamic agent in your area.
If you go to my website, located on the bottom of the site you will find an informational list for Sellers and one of the items is a questionnaire to use when interviewing. Good Luck.

Based upon my interpretation of your question, I would agree with Missy. Because over 80 percent of consumers look online for real estate, you want someone with a good online presence. If you choose to select a real estate company, rather than just an agent, you should do the same thing by entering
site: "Real Estate Company Name" substituting each company name within the quotation marks.
I suggest interviewing at least three agents even if you're purchasing a home. Homeowners should make their decision based upon their marketing (and make the agent show you all marketing for your home).
