How do I find the agent who sold a property listed as recently sold?

Asked by Hoping2sell, Jacksonville, FL Fri Jul 11, 2008

I own a nearly identical property to a condo which recently sold at what I consider a decent price, and did so within 3 months -- a bit remarkable in this current housing market. Obviously, then, this is an agent I'd be interested in contacting! Nowhere in the property details on the Trulia site do I see any information regarding the agent involved in the sale of the condo in question... is this privileged information or am i missing something? Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Hoping2sell,

Call or e-mail me. I am a local agent. I will tell you the listing agent and also the buyer's agent if it has closed.

Any Realtor in the area would be able to look up this information for you from the MLS. Feel free to give me a call or send me an email with the address and I will get the information to you.

Hoping,

Contact the agents listing office. I'm certain they will be able to point you in the right direction.

Good luck,

I can tell you who the listing agent was, how many days it took to sell, and also what similar homes/condos are selling for in the area. Send me an email with the address, and I will give you any information you need. nostroff@cbpref.com

Hi Hoping2Sell -- I only know of two ways to find out the listing agent after it has closed: either ask the new owner if he could look up in his closing documents who represented the seller, or contact a local real estate agent and ask them to look it up in the MLS. I know I'd be happy to do it for a you--my only request would be that you also let me have an opportunity to pitch my marketing plan so you could compare it to the "found" agent.
I disagree with some of my fellow agents' responses here. The listing agent many times has a lot to do with the home being picked over the rest of the competition. I'm extremely honest with my sellers in telling them everything they need to do to be head and shoulders above their competition through staging, cleaning, repairing, marketing to the public, and, of course, pricing.

It's not rocket science, but there is a lot of creativity and talent involved in listing AND selling a house, especially in this challenging market. I think you're smart in trying to find the agent--just don't hire him/her without checking others out. Sometimes, it is just luck that gets the buyer and seller together quickly--most times it's good planning and hard work.

Good luck!

Mark is right on! If you remember the listing co. call them and they will obviously tell you who it is.

ever go fishing, the guy next to you throws out a line, gets a fish the moment the bait hits the water....You throw out an identical bait, and you wait, and wait and wait.. Real estate is alot like fishing!

I agree somewhat with Karen, then again when selling a property you need to feel comfortable with your agent, and be sure that your agent will be there pretty much at your beg and calling for questions and advise. In the Real Estate world more than likely that agent did not sell the property, a second party agent brought the buyer to complete the sale.

You really want to know who was the buyer's agent since that is the person who brought in the sale. Ask an agent, any agent, to come and make a sales presentation to you.....and to bring with them recent sales statistics. Then when you look at these you should be able to find out what company sold the properties. Or maybe even what agent sold.

Main thing is to pick an agent who has a company behind them that has huge representation on the internet since that is where everyone begins their search.

The other possibility is to go to the property appraisers office, or online, and search who paid the taxes on that condo. That will give you the name of sellers. Write to them and ask.

In the absence of closed statistics, perhaps the new owners of the condo will be able to provide you with the name of the listing agent. You might, though, also find out who the "selling" agent was- they are the Realtor that brought the buyers, and may have more. Good luck!
