Picking the Right RE Company and Agent

How to Pick a Real Estate Co
And a Good Agent

There are so many Real Estate Co’s to choose from and even more agents. What should you look for?

5 Good Questions to ask about the Real  Estate Co.

  • Is the company well known in the area?
  • What is the company’s track record?
  • Does the company provide on going training for their agents?
  • Does the company require every agent to go through legal training every year presented by a Real Estate Attorney?
  • Does the company provide state of the art technology for marketing your home or finding your dream home?

Company’s who have a name that is well known in the area usually draw more buyers and sellers to them, making your exposure better as a buyer or seller.  Past track record will give you solid information of how successful they have been in the past for helping people.  Training is so important for agents no matter how long they have been selling Real Estate.  The market changes, buyers and sellers change, lending rules change, technology changes, paperwork changes and agents need to be kept up on all of these areas.  Having good training on the current laws and paperwork is so important to protect you as the buyer or seller of a home.  As generations change and we begin working with buyers and sellers across generations we have to always keep up with the newest technology to best service our clients.  As an agent it is impossible to keep up with all this on your own, you are busy working with people and not always aware of all the new laws, rules, paperwork changes or technology. 

10 Good Questions to ask Yourself about the Agent

  • Do they work for a good company?
  • Do you trust them?
  • Are they readily available to you?
  • Do they ask good questions to clearly understand your wants and needs?
  • Do they listen to you?
  • Can they answer all your questions on a timely basis?
  • Can they provide solid and reliable information about the market?
  • Are they honest and reliable?
  • Are they willing to earn your business?

All these questions are very important as they are responsible for one of the largest monetary transactions you will probably make in your life.
