Choosing a Real Estate Agent – the Smart Way

Finding a real estate agent is very easy – put the results can be unpredictable. It’s tempting to simply search on line, use a family member, a friend or someone who you worked with years ago. But be forewarned – easy and convenient may not be in your best interest. Remember, buying a home is both an emotional and financial decision. You want to make sure that the person you choose is likable, trustworthy, and experienced. In this case, 2 out of 3 doesn’t cut it. You’ll be spending a good amount of time with this person, so listen to your gut. You should feel that your best interests are primary. Wait for the agent who will (tactfully) tell you like it is, because doing so will result in you achieving your goals. It’s easy to tell you what you want to hear, but doing so is not the honest and ethical thing to do. Start out by asking for referrals from family, friends, and professionals that you trust.
