With about 90% of home buyers beginning their search online, you should find an agent that has a strong web presence. He/She should be able to market your home on multiple websites not only locally, but nationally and internationally.

Questions to ask:

How many years of education and experience do you have?

Is your license in good standing? ( you can go to http://www.myflorida.com to check license status)

Can you give me a comparative market analysis (CMA) of recent sales in the area and homes currently on the market?

Will you handle all aspects of my transaction or will you delegate some tasks to a sales associate or administrative assistant?

Do you work full-time or part-time as a real estate agent?

How many other sellers are you representing now?

What does your marketing package contain in addition to a comparative market analysis

What I have found- as a broker- most sellers want an agent with a successful track record in sales in that very neighborhood.

There are other attributes too, but a strong track record seems to be a priority.
