Finding a good real estate agent / broker is essential to enjoying a painless real estate transaction. The saying is 20% of the agents do 80% of the business, and it is true. The question is how can you find a good real estate agent? The best agent for you doesn t necessarily work at the largest brokerage, close the most transactions or make the most money. The best agent for you is an experienced professional who will listen to you, conduct herself in an ethical manner and knows your market.
5. Track Neighborhood Signs
6. Using Print Advertising
Real estate agents run real estate ads for two purposes. The first is to sell specific real estate. The second is to promote the real estate agent. Look in your local community newspaper for house ads in your targeted neighborhood. Then look up the websites of the agents who are advertising. These agents could be specialists in your neighborhood. Call and ask them about their experience.
