Theresa - the best way to reach a Realtor is to pick up the phone and call them. If you're clicking on "Contact a Realtor", here on Trulia... not every agent monitors their Trulia account regularly.

Like Alan said, the best thing to do is to call them direct. If they don't get back with you in a reasonable time, call another one.

Once you get one on the phone, ask questions. If you feel a "connection," work with them exclusively.

It'll work out best that way.

I can refer a Remax agent in the area you are looking in. I am sure they will follow up. Best Regards, Steve

Hi Theresa,

Ask friends and family for references. If they don't know of any, call a few local Brokerages (Real Estate offices) and 'interview' a few Realtors to see who you feel comfortable working with. You need to feel comfortable with the Realtor you hire because real estate is a very important investment.

Good luck!!!

I am not sure where you are finding the email addy you are using. I am sure they are either dead or your email is not going through or they would return the contact attempt. Try calling if you see a number. We sometimes are harder to find but most all of us carry cell phones, smart phones and are eager to return your call. Try the Find A Pro feature here to find a Realtor in your area, it doesn't have to be the one listed next to the homes you see.
