As for the question itself, you must gauge what you need from the agent who is going to "represent" your best interest in helping you achieve what you seek. For instance, a seller wants someone who is knowledgeable and passionate about his/her business and clients; someone who strives to do right by the client and those with whom s/he deals with in developing the transaction.
Having said this, I have found, like others who have commented on Trulia before, that nowadays some Realtors are going the way of the "Robo-signing" where you deal with machines, emails, voicemails, etc. I have a transaction presently where I believe I have talked with three people over the course of 60 days, and have dealt with at least 20 people who are "robo-handling" this transaction. So, if you prefer to have a real person dealing with you on that level, you ought to ask that question of the agent too.

1). Interview at least 3 Realtors who specialize in listing in Daly City. Remember a good buyerâ€™s agent may not be a good listing agent and vice versa.
2). Hire someone who is a full time Realtor. You donâ€™t want to hire a part time Realtor, full time postman or whatever maybe his or her other job is.
3). Make sure the agent you hire is not â€œBuying Your Listingâ€. Convincing you that they can sell your home for a higher price than the other agents do, and then get back to you in a month or so to lower your price because you are not getting any activity. In this market, you are competing with short sales and bank owned properties. These homes are priced aggressively and most REOâ€™s give higher commission to selling agent up to 3.5% or higher to sell their assets faster.
4). Have them prepare a Comparative Market Analysis of your home based on todayâ€™s market and asked them how they arrive at their suggested listing price.
5). They must have a website to showcase your listing. You must have an internet presence especially in todayâ€™s market. Ask them for their Marketing Plan.
6). Donâ€™t make a mistake of hiring an agent because they have the lowest fee in town. Remember you always get what you pay for.
7). Sign a 90 days listings so that you donâ€™t get stuck with them should he or she does not deliver what they promise to do.

Today as you well know the internet is the primary way buyers find the house they will buy. You will want an agent who knows how to market your property all over the internet and show its best face. Some of the property you have seen don't even have a picture with the listing. Perhaps you know of sellers who don't get a return call in a timely manner.
So find an agent who will come and make a presentation to you and show you just what they will do for you and how it will be done. I too would welcome the opportunity to provide you quality service in real estate. ilene@ileneSellsSF.com Blessings, Ilene

I saw your question and saw that David Tapper has responded to it. I highly recommend, without any reservation, that you give him a call.
I have recently purchased a house after almost 2 years of searching. Through the entire process (which is definitely not stress free), I have talked and worked with many different realtors from different areas and companies. David is the best and the most ethical realtor I have met. He truly looks out for his client's best interest, and negotiates like he is spending his own money. I only wish I could have met him earlier so that I could work with him myself.
I have a team of 6 agents who would be working towards the goal of selling your home for the highest and best price. Feel free to visit my website at http://www.DavidTapper.com.
