You also what to choose a realtor with a large office, that has a strong support staff and actual realtors who have seen your home answering the phones. At many smaller real estate companies, calls will go straight to voicemail even in the middle of the day. Our office- Weichert Realtors in Sparta has 90+ realtors- so we have enough realtors to be answering the phone from 8:30 to 9:00 on weekdays and 8:30 to 6:00 on weekends. Weichert Realtors is the market leader in Vernon, Sussex County, and all of Northern New Jersey. I'd love to speak with you further about what Weichert has to offer, but I will say that we have an internet presence that goes way beyond any of our competitors.

I would meet with several agents from different companies and see what each one has to offer as far as pricing and marketing. I would recommend never to list with the agent that gave you the highest price or the agent that offered you the lowest commission. Being overpriced on the market will not get your home sold and paying a lower commission, well -- sometimes you get what you pay for. Make sure the agent is full time and knows the area. Once you've met with several agents you should certainly have a good idea of what the house is really worth to a buyer today, you can compare what each has to offer as far as marketing and you will probably have a good feeling or established a good rapport with during your meetings.
It doesn't necessarily have to be a seasoned agent. New agents are just as capable as getting the job done. Listing with the top producer in the office is great but how much time do you think they can devote to your one home when they have so many other sellers to please too? Many new agents are eager and agressive. Choose an agent you like and that can get the job done. Make sure your pricing is right and the marketing plan is aggressive.
This concept also applies to buyers. Most every agent will ask you to get a pre-approval before they take you out to see any home. This is for a few reasons. The first being that we need to see if you can even get approved to buy a home. The second is to find your true price range which is done best by seeing the limits of the pre-approval. Lastly, no one wants to waste their time, not even you. Getting a pre-approval will save you hours upon hours of time over looking for houses blindly and not knowing how much you can afford or if you can even get a mortgage.
So, Interview with different agents and different brokerages and see what your perfect fit is. You are not locked in withor more importantly obligated to anyone until you start signing your name. So before you do, interview, interview, interview.
Here is always my advice....
Pick your Realtor like you select your family physician, dentist, accountant, attorney, and friends too.
Someone you trust and you have great communication with, someone who listens and understands
your needs, and someone who has time for you, and you can reach at any time.
Furthermore you really want a Realtor who is straight forward and honest, you want straight answers
and information to make the right decision, you need not to hear what you want to hear, you need

Seriously, when You are considering selling a home, or any property for that matter, you should interview several agents before making a decision. You will be working closely with that agent in preparing the property for sale as well as through the entire sale cycle.
You should feel comfortable and confident with the agent.
You will want to look at how your home will be marketed. Not just listed on the MLS and a few point-and-shoot pictures taken, but professionally marketed,
If you would like to send me an email I would be happy to prepare a CMA and show you what I would do to market your house. firstname.lastname@example.org I am with Prudential Gross & Jansen Highlands Realty in Vernon, NJ You can also call my cell at 201-306-2747
But you are making a very important decision. Make sure the Agent you select is active, with numerous Listings and Sales. Make sure they are FULL TIME, not a second job. Make sure they have a good website.
Make sure they are active beyond just Verona. Long gone are the days where local Realtors sell the home to local Buyers. Think about it. When you Agent is showing a home in Roseland, you want them to be able to say confidently, "I know of another home in Verona that would be perfect for you."
Most of all, use you instinct. It has gotten you this far in life. Continue to trust it. You must be on the same page with you Agent to have a successful relationship.
You have to do some research or......I can help you! I have the ability and resources to help you select the top Broker/Realtor in your area.
