Find a few to interview. You can ask friends/neighbors, search online, stop by your nearest brokers office and/or choose from all the agents responding here. While you should look for experience in the type of home you are looking for, including location and price range, you should most importantly find someone you feel comfortable working with. They should also have a simliar working style (do you prefer phone or text/email?), and availability when you are free. If you are considering agents responding here, review the profiles and responses to other buyers questions. That can give you a feel for our different ideas and knowledge bases.
