1. How long have you been working in real estate?
It’s critical you choose an agent who has experience negotiating on a client’s behalf, who understands the entire process of buying a home, who is confident in representing your best interests, and who has typically seen most situations before. If you’re working with a team, make sure you know who will be showing you homes and who will be negotiating your offer, as well as who will walk you through the escrow process.
2. Do you work full time in real estate?
When you’re looking for a home, you will want a Realtor or Real Estate Team who is on the job full-time. You’ll want someone who is available on your schedule, and who is exposed to potential new properties before they hit the market.
3. Do you specialize in a particular price range?
If you are looking for your first home or you are looking for a luxury property, you want to make sure your agent has a breadth of experience with your preferred price range.
