Locating a pet friendly agent is the first part. The sellers should have the option of allowing your pet to come with you when you look at their home. I know some people who are highly allergic and having someone elses pet visit their home would not be ok.
I have also seen some neighborhoods where the number of pets has a limit.
Pets are a very important part of peoples families and you are wise in searching for a real estate agent that can understand your needs. I would contact the local real estate offices and interview individual agents. That way you could get a real feel for their love of animals. Some people do not like pets or are allergic and may not understand what your needs are. I wish you were looking in our area because I am a huge animal lover! Good luck!
I'm sure there are plenty of pet friendly agents in the area, therefore consider interviewing in person a few local agents, or as many as needed, from different realty companies--then choose the person you like best.
