Where are they going to promote your property? As a member of the local MLS it will feed to 100's of websites for free once your agent lists it, but do they do anything past that? Will they advertise in local paper? Do they participate in any 3rd party advertising sites, such as Trulia?

Everyone has very good answers.I agree that it is important to have a local Realtor that is full time.
Your Realtor should make this and every listing a priority.

I'll follow up with Nico. You do want to make sure your home will get as much exposure as possible. Having your agent be connected with mulitple MLS servicing companies will be helpful. But ask what else they will bring to the table as far as marketing your home. Many agents feel that it's up on MLS and that would be sufficent. In todays tech market there are so many other avenues for home exposure.

You also want to work with an experience agent. They tend to know how to deal with certain issues that are undoubtably will come along or know how to lead them off before hand.

Finally go with your gut, you'll know from the first meeting if you'll mesh personality wise.

Good luck.

In my opinion, the first and foremost question is that the agent is a local agent and a member of both multiple listing services and board of realtors, and he or she is a full time agent.
