I agree with the others, interview a couple of Realtors that work in your area. Ask them the same question and take some notes!
I don't know your plans, however based on the calendar I would make those calls a priority!
Absolutely, start by interviewing agents and take into account the overall experience and presentation. The agent representing you will have to provide maximum exposure in this delicate market. In my experience, working with a National Company helps bring in referrals that may not be available to smaller companies. Get Educated!! The best advice I can give you would be to get as educated as you can about your Market so you can help make the decisions when it comes time to sell!
