Dear Mackenzie,

Most of the people responding here to your question would like to become your real estate agent. To some degree or another we are all effectively auditioning to do so.

If you do not yet have a real estate agent, then you should know that generally speaking (with some possible exceptions) the agent who walks in with you to see this property for the first time will "by default" become you real estate agent (at least for this property)- unless you have a written agreement with a different agent who you have already designated as your real estate agent. If that is the case and you'd like to continue to work with your own designated agent, then you should contact your agent to arrange a showing/viewing of this property for you.

Again if you do not yet have a real estate agent- I would suggest speaking with multiple agents before you make a choice on whom you'd like to work with, and I would not necessarily rule out people who have responded to your request here. These agents tend to be pretty technologically up to date (compared to the vast majority of realtors), and as a result they can often respond to requests more quickly.

I have also included some links on how to choose a Realtor if you are just starting out whether you are buying or selling.

If you a serious buyer you should hire an agent first, otherwise you could be stuck with the first agent who shows you the home, whether you like them or not. The first agent who shows you a home is entitled to a commission from the sale of that home under procuring cause (with some exceptions) so think carefully before you run out and see homes with an agent you have never met before.

Good luck!
