A great agent is an agent that is not only going to find you the home that you're looking for, but is an agent that you'll have fun doing it with! Buying a home is serious business, it's the single largest transaction most people will ever conduct in their lives! For me, I act how I want to be remembered. When my clients are sitting around in 30 years thinking about their first home buying experience I want to be a part of that memory! I want my clients to say they had a great agent that found them a wonderful home!
Aside from having a winning, fun personality your Realtor should also know their market! A good agent will research properties for you and send you a list based on your wants and needs and not press homes on you that you dont want. A good agent should have good, open lines of communication. Meaning, if you try to contact your agent they should respond back to you within a couple of hours but no later than about a day. GOOD Real Estate agents can get pretty busy, but they also make time for their clients. A good agent should be with you every step of the way, guiding you through every step of the process. They should go over all paperwork and conduct the negotiations, they should schedule inspections, and go to the closing table with you to make sure everything checks out. Even after closing a good agent should remain in contact with you to make sure that your needs have been met and that your entire experience was a good one.
The short answer is, if you have a good agent they will know what they're talking about, they'll work with your schedule, and they'll be there to help no matter what you need.
