I think that those questions would differ quite a bit from individual to individual as everyone has different priorities. I actually refer different agents to my clients based on personality as well as more quantifiable aspects such as what areas they cover and their specialties, etc. You definitely should try to communicate your expectations for how you will conduct your search. Go with whichever agent makes you feel the most comfortable in their response.
Also, if you have not gotten your self pre-approved with a lender, now is the time to do so. a realtor can provide much better service when they have an understanding of your exact needs from the lenders perspective.
I am available to help you at your convenience if you wish.
I also offer credit score improvement programs for free while we work on your mortgage.
