This is just a point of information or maybe a warning for you. Since you offered up your direct email address, you may experience a high volume of contacts from very hungry agents wanting to work with you. This may not be the best way to find an agent that can work with you well.
In my experience the caliber of the knowledge and experience of most of the agents in this forum is generally better than that of your average real estate agent. But the solicitation you will likely experience because of your post will be the most aggressive of the agents in this pool.
An aggressive agent is not necessarily a bad thing, but it is certainly not the only attribute to consider when hiring an agent. A good source for a quality agent is referrals from your friends and family. Another way to locate a great agent is to read through postings here on Trulia searching for topics you may have questions about to identify an agent that seems to have the specific area knowledge that youâ€™re looking for.
And here are some links to some websites with additional tips for selecting an agent (whether youâ€™re buying or selling or both).
