how to choose a realtor

When you may know more than one, how to choose a Realtor to hire can be really difficult. This list will help clear the fog so you can get on with your home ownership journey!

There are several factors to consider when selecting a realtor, such as their experience, knowledge of the local market, and level of service. It’s important to do your research and ask the right questions to determine which realtor is the best fit for you. 

Here’s how to choose a Realtor that’s right for you…

Some questions you should ask potential realtors include: 

  • What experience do you have in this area?
  • What is your marketing plan for my property?
  • How will you communicate with me throughout the process?
  • What do you charge for your services?
  • How do you handle negotiations?
  • Are you a Realtor or Real Estate Agent (there’s a big difference)

Are they willing to take the time to explain the process with you and answer all of your questions or do they seem annoyed and short?

Are they talking more than asking? A good Realtor should be asking you questions to help you navigate each step of the process so that your goals are at the forefront.

Ultimately, it’s important to select a realtor that you feel comfortable working with and who you trust to provide the best service. 

Take your time to compare different realtors and ask as many questions as you need to make an informed decision.
