I would suggest, that as a buyer, you Google every agent from your area that responds to your question here on Trulia, learn as much as you can about who they are online, read their client testimonials, so you know what their clients are saying about them, and then give us each a call and just ask us why we think you should work with us instead of another agent. This will take you a little while to do, but will be time well spent, as choosing the right agent is the first step towards choosing the right home. Then, pick the best fit for you and let them go to work for you with the skill and knowledge that they have.
If you do not get an agent responding from the area, or, you need to get pre approved for a loan, get in touch with me & I can send you a local referral. 206-841-9976
