I don't work in any of those areas, but here are some things to look for when you're hunting for a good Realtor:
1. They need to know A LOT about the current real estate market as well as the economy in general.
2. They need to know even more about the cities and towns that you're looking to purchase a home in, and they need to know loads about specific communities, neighborhoods and areas within those cities and towns.
3. They also need to know a lot about real estate in general. This doesn't mean that they need 30 years of experience, it just means that they need to know what they are doing!
4. A Realtor who listens to you is also very important...if you say that you're looking for something $250k or less and they consistently show you homes that are above that, they are NOT listening!
I hope you find a great Realtor! Good luck!
