Top Ten Suggestions for Selecting a Real Estate Agent


In order to find a real estate broker or agent who meets your needs and makes your buying or selling experience a positive one, Century 21 Real Estate Corporation recommends you:

  • DO NOT blindly walk into or call a neighborhood firm and ask for an agent at random.

  • Ask friends and family for recommendations.

  • Interview several real estate agents:

    • Find out their history with the brokerage, their experience and background.

    • Gauge their knowledge of your favorite towns.

    • Ask for a list of previous clients and their phone numbers.

  • Pay attention to whether a potential agent is listening closely to what you say.

    • Is he or she asking follow-up questions which prompt further explanation and help him or her understand exactly your needs and wants?

  • Give a potential agent the opportunity to educate you.

    • A good agent should walk a customer through the buying or selling process before ever showing properties or discussing a specific transaction.

  • Have a good idea of what you expect from an agent and communicate those expectations.

    • How often do you want to hear from your agent?

    • Do you want to hold meetings at your house rather than the real estate office?

  • Weigh the benefits of working with an experienced agent versus a novice.

    • An experienced agent may have more insight, but a new agent may have innovative ideas or more energy and time.

  • Find an agent who complements your personality.

    • If you like to start your day at 7:00 a.m., don't choose an agent who arrives to the office at 10:00 a.m.

    • If your preferred method of communication is e-mail, don't choose an agent whose most advanced technology is a fax machine.

  • Evaluate the agent's firm and/or office.

    • Look for a real estate organization whose agents can empower you with real estate expertise and resources and provide first-rate customer service.

  • Look for an agent who will be your partner.

    • Find someone you trust, who will give you the facts, help you make intelligent, well-informed decisions and work with you throughout the entire process.
