Whether you've already decided to sell, or need some help making that decision, your thought process in selecting an agent should be very precise. You will be spending many hours with your agent, and you will need to place a considerable amount of trust in him or her.

When selecting a real estate agent to work with, consider the following factors:

  • experience in the field
  • reputation with other agents
  • ability to listen and advise
  • relationship with past clients
  • negotiating skills

The next step in finding a property is finding a good agent to work with. An experienced and qualified agent working for you can save you money, time and aggravation. A good agent knows the market inside and out. Agents also have access to information about listings that the general public may not.

A good buyers agent will:

  • Help you find your property
  • Successfully negotiate the sale
  • Help you to do the research necessary on the property to protect yourself and your investment
  • Keep the deal together and make sure that the escrow closes

It is a good idea to interview the agent you will be working with to see what his or her qualifications are and how well you get along. Realtors, like everyone else, come in a variety of personalities, styles and levels of competence. A good match can make your whole experience easier, more pleasant and more profitable.
