Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
I was so glad to work with Jim! He was such a huge help! We were on a small budget but still VERY picky. He helped every step of the way, was always reachable through email and phone, and he showed us houses with the features we were looking for and kept coming up with more options! We close next week, and I couldn't be more thankful for all that he's done to get us into our perfect starter home!Stephanie Reinier
