Unfortunately you'll have to interview. Finding an agent is kind of like dating....you have to see what works and what doesn't. And so do the agents, it's an interview for them as well.
I wish you the best of luck and if you have any questions about how staging sells... I'd be happy to explain.

Let me ask: If you were going to go to court for some reason, say, you were being sued for $250,000, would you hire an attorney out of the Yellow Pages or Google, or use another method?
Particularly in a buyer's market, you need a sharp Realtor that will help you determine your options, truthfully, and then execute flawlessly. Unless you've got time and money to throw away, I recommend interviewing some Realtors and selecting the best.
A good Realtor will help you net more or lose the least. We are not all equal, some are better than others.
Is commission your only criteria? Is your bottom line more important? If I would sell your home for free would you hire me?
I used to live in Portland (SE near Tigard). If you'd like a referral I've got one.
Good luck to you.
I hope you pick the best one for the job and not just the guy with the cheapest rate. Also if you do take your own advice and "make a half dozen phone calls to find the best rate" think about how that sounds when you are asking for the rate. Put that same phone call in the context of How much is that house over in Gresham? The agent who puts up the least fight is probably going to "put up the least fight"
Just food for thought. At least interview them in your home. And then go with the best looking one, because you need a standard and that is just as good as the one you already have......
