Every agent is the best. Just ask them.

Seriously, you want to do some interviews of course. But in doing those interviews you have to ask the right questions.

Here is how to ask the wrong way, followed by the right way:

Wrong: Will you advertise my home?
Right: Where will you advertise my home? How many times per month? For how long?

Wrong: Will you do open houses?
Right: How many open houses will you do per month? Will you continue to do them every month of the listing? Can you put that in writing?

Wrong: Will you put my home on the Internet?
Right: Can you give me a complete list of websites where I can find my home after you list it?

The strategy is to find out EXACTLY and SPECIFICALLY what an agent is going to do to get your home sold. A good agent will have no problem committing to a specific program and putting it in writing.

Psst... Grace I'll let you in on a little known secret, wanna know?

It's Me!!! LOL....

If not, I'd like to think I'm pretty darn close. I grew up in Linden, know it like the back of my hand and as a matter of fact still live in Linden. I'm close friends with a couple of shall we say local industry insiders, and not to sound cliche` but my number one job is customer satisfaction and I demand the same from all the agents in my brokerage. If you'd like feel free to give me a buzz, I'll tell you more, not so much about myself but how I can help you best depending on your particular situation, needs, timeline and so on.

Each agent has basically the same tools to do the job today. It's just how effectively they use them. Obviously you want to choose an assertive agent, but select one that you feel comfortable with and suits your own personality, is prompt and courteous and not overly agressive, Don't choose one purely on the merits of what they say they will do to advertise your home because 95% of homes that sell are through an agent other than your listing agent. That's the great thing about the MLS. Agents who heavily advertise are truly marketing themselves and, of course, just hope that they sell your home in the process. This brings me to the meat of my answer. Don't expect agents to perform a miracle sale if your home is overpriced. Buyers are sophisticated and want value for their money. Would you buy an overpriced home just because you like the listing agent and thought they were doing a great job??
Pricing your home right from the start will move it quickly since the many agents out there will tell their buyer customers what a great value your home is compared to all the others that are just sitting there.
You might even be pleasantly surprised with more than one offer.
If you would like more tips on buying or selling a home, I would love to hear from you.

If you don't get a response from a local agent, ask some of your friends/family for recommendations. If you still get nowhere, email me through Trulia or my website and I'll be happy to refer someone to you.
