One of the biggest transactions made in a lifetime; often so little thought given to who can best represent you the seller. Consider what’s at stake; your time, your money and maybe your quality of life for the foreseeable future. All things considered the selection of your Realtor could literally have a profound affect your life.


So, how do you choose the right professional to represent you?

Interview and ask the right questions.


Who should you interview?

Ask your family, friends and associates about recommendations based on their personal experiences. Don’t rely on hearsay,  advertisement or hype.


What questions should you ask?

•  Do you work primarily with sellers; if so why? 

•  Do you work full-time as an agent; if not, why not? 

•  How long have you been a real estate agent? 

•  How homes have you sold in the past 2 years?

•  What is your average time to sell; do you have documentation?

•  How many sellers are you presently working with?

•  What hours do you make yourself available?

•  Can you clearly explain how your marketing process is different?

•  How and how often will you be in contact with me?

•  If unhappy with your performance can I cancel our contract without recourse? 

•  Can you give examples of your negotiation skills? 

•  How well-acquainted are you with my area?

•  Can you give me three references of sellers you have worked with recently?

•  At what point do you consider your responsibilities to me to be concluded?

•  Do you have any professional designations and/or awards? If so please elaborate.
