Thanks for your question!
I agree with the feedback here suggesting that you seek referrals from family and/or friends. If you canâ€™t find an agent that way, you could check out sites like Trulia to check out agents in your area. You should be able to get a feel for the agentâ€™s thought process or the way they work based on some of the responses on the Q&A forums. You can also look at their profiles to see if you can gather any additional info that you might find interesting. Should you meet with them in person, please know that you will not be obligated to work with them simply because youâ€™ve agreed to do so.
With that said, Iâ€™d obviously be remiss if I didnâ€™t offer my own buyer agent services! I am a native Washingtonian, but have also lived in Maryland and am familiar with the Adelphi area. Additionally, I have access to great resources and am knowledgeable about first time home-buying. You can visit my profile to view my snapshot. Iâ€™d be glad to consult with you, and the opportunity to earn your business.
