1. How long have you've been working in real estate?
Make sure your agent or your team of agents have been working in real estate for several years. If you are working with a team, ensure you will work with the principals and not be passed along to another agent with little or no experience.
2. Does the agent demonstrate confidence?
When you speak with them, do they speak confidently about their experience, about getting your home sold for the best possible terms, and about their process? Do they demonstrate a take-charge attitude, but still acknowledge you are the customer?
3. Are you a full-time or part-time agent?
Your home is often one of your largest personal assets. Treat it as such, and hire a full-time professional to sell it. Your Real Estate Team should be available whenever you need them, and available to show your home whenever necessary.
