How to find a stellar real estate agent?

Stellar – of or relating to the stars; stellar people are of an extremely high standard.

When looking for a real estate agent to help you with one of life’s biggest decisions, be sure to hire a stellar Realtor!

You may ask…how could I find such a person? Well, you’ll want to reach out to a few Realtors and interview them to see if they’re the right agent for you. Take the time in the beginning to ask questions that matter most to you.

What hours are you available? Does that align with the agent’s schedule?

What is your communication preference? Is the agent able to match it?

What is your timeline? Are you looking now or 2-3 years out? How does the agent stay in touch?

Does the agent listen when you speak? Do they really understand your needs?

Does that agent adapt to your style? Or do they push their own personality on you?

Ask about continuing education. Does the Realtor attend regular classes and seminars?

Check out their social media sites and look for reviews.

Ask your friends and family for referrals. How satisfied are they with the overall service?

First-time Home Buyer? Ask what percentage of the agent’s business are newcomers to homeownership.

If personal development is high on your agenda, ask about that too. Does the agent believe in personal growth?

Donate to charity? It’s okay to ask if the Realtor supports any non-profit organizations.

Looking for reference? A stellar agent has a list a mile long of people they know, like, and trust to refer to.

Does the agent require a Buyer Representation Agreement? If so, why?

Don’t settle for less…this is a big investment that most folks only experience 3 times in their life. Be sure that the agent has your best interest at heart, not theirs. If your grandma has used the same agent for 25 years, that doesn’t mean they’re the right agent for you. Then again, they could be perfect!
