Part time Real Estate Agents
Think about it this way,...
Deals are done all day long, from 6 am to midnight 7 days a week.
Seeing Homes are generally done 9am to 7pm.
If you real estate agent works part time doing something else and it is during the times you are looking for homes it will probably impact you and your search.
Part time agents are not usually as astute in doing deals either which may cost you as well.
Part time agents are not usually as well educated in Real Estate either.
Part time agents usually do real estate for extra spending money or vacation money.
The thing you need to ask yourself is one agent as good as another?
Just because we all carry the same license does not make us all the same.
That would be like saying all drivers are the same.
Would you rather a professional driver who does as you ask to drive you around or would you rather the 16 year old drive you around and get an "E" ticket ride?
Keep in mind a home is the most expensive item you will buy in the next 3 - 5 years.
If you felt this person is doing the job you expect, you probably wouldn't be asking here.
With all the answers you have, I think as an astute person, you realize what is best for you.
