I will try to make it short
a) You need an agent with whom you have great communication and who understands your needs
b) because your home is special and unique you need a Realtor who can think outside the box
and has the time to promote your home as uniquely as it is itself
c) You want an agent who has time and will personally interact with you and market your property
him or herself.
d) And yes your Realtor needs to have some expertise in your area, what sells and what does not
e) and if in your case this Realtor has some knowledge and or architectural expertise that would
certainly come in handy when showing your home BUT having said that, if you can find a
Realtor who is ready and willing to do the research and put in the extra time to describe your
home for the unique diamond it is, then may be that is the right person for you....
I always say after you talk with a Realtor for a while and exchange some ideas you know who is
the right one for you, most of the times..... (you know just like falling in love with the future hubby or wife..... same goes for Realtors, there is no direct this that or something else, that will make one
Realtor better than another until you have a conversation and exchanges about your home and the
marketing AND ONLY THEN WILL YOU KNOW)
If for any reason you would like some recommendations of some area Realtors, feel free to get
back to me and I gladly send some recommendations your way.

As one example: I represented the sellers of a large property built in 1926 that still had zoned, gravity heating for the first floor. Many buyers would view this to be a disadvantage. We have become conditioned to view forced air heating systems as the only approach. My team and I highlighted how gentle this form of heating was and how cost effective having a zoned system can be. This is only one small consideration, but each detail builds upon itself when marketing a home.
We did find a buyer who was thrilled to have a well maintained, historically accurate property.
Very Interesting Question, thanks for that.
There are Realtors, and also entire brokerages, who specialize in historic properties. I would think that such a Brokerage would be highly trained and also might have the following to sell that type of home. If you are thinking of appealing to a Connoisseur of your style of home. If you home is very unique it might only appeal to this demographic.
On the other hand, if it's the neighborhood and many homes are similar style then a local Realtor should be able to sell your home successfully.

I work out of the Beverly Hills North office of Coldwell Banker because I feel it gives me greatest access to all of LA but I have owned my home in Beachwood Canyon for 7 years and have lived in the Hollywood Hills for 14 years and am intimately familiar with the neighborhood and its history.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to meet in person.
