Dmitry, to actually answer the question you asked...
Finding an agent can be done in many way. When it comes to selling your home, you want to make sure you are using someone who is professional & knowledgable about the market. Do your research before picking an agent. Ask co-workers, family, & friends who they have used in the past. Once you decide on a few, interview them. Have them show you what they are willing to do for YOU! You do not want to become just another listing. Ask how they plan to market your home, etc etc.
Best of luck in the sell of your home!

I recommend talking to several agents and asking a lot of questions. Find one you feel comfortable with and not just one who tells you what you may want to hear as far as the value of your property goes. Look for detailed knowledge and understanding of your local market because you are counting on this person to help you navigate the selling process smoothly and net you the most possible for your investment.

Hope this helps.

Commissions are negotiable, and I will negotiate to save you some money. Select an agent that has been in business for a while. It's a seller's market right now, with many getting over list price offers, so now is a good time to sell. Please call if I can help.

One of the biggest mistakes people make is....picking their Realtor® and lender blindly!

One of the mistakes a lot of people make is finding a Realtor® they aren't comfortable with or picking someone just because they attend the same church or because they know them. Make sure you pick a Realtor® who is right for you versus whether you know them or not.

First-time home buyers or people new to an area are generally more time-consuming than the average buyer and require more attention, you must find a Realtor® who understands your situation and is willing to assist you with your needs in mind A good Realtor® will be friendly and accommodating, show only homes that fit your parameters, and help you with strategies during the bidding process—but never pressure you into something you're not comfortable with. It's important that the Realtor® be experienced with buyers, understand their wants and needs, and be able to connect with them well.

Similarly, buyers should feel at ease with and have complete confidence in their mortgage lender, and they should fully discuss and understand their financing options with that lender. Don't apologize for asking questions, there's a pretty substantial chunk of people who are in really rough straits right now and would not have been had they done their homework and asked questions.

The bottom-line, are they available on weekends and evenings to answer your questions, will they work hard for you and do everything possible to sell your home instead of just placing a sign in the yard and hoping for a buyer to come along.

I have clients looking for investment property right now. If the price is right I can include my commission in the sales price and you technically won't need to pay a commission. Send me an email with the price, address and any details with the property. I will let you know if we can get a deal going.
