Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions in your life. With so much on the line, you owe it to yourself to hire a REALTOR who is personally invested in you and your aspirations. How can you tell if you're working with an agent who is highly committed to you? It’s really about the way in which your agent shows up each day, attending to all of the details of your purchase or your sale, that has a huge impact on whether or not you achieve your goals.
Here are 8 signs you're working with an agent who is personally invested in you.
When you’re pricing your home, your agent does their homework and clearly articulates their reasons for their recommended list price. Your agent also recommends simple cosmetic updates that will increase your home’s market value.
When you’re staging your home, your agent puts in the extra effort to help you create a finished product that transforms your home into a beautiful, showcase listing.
When you’re marketing your home, your agent attends to all of the details with care and attention. From the quality of the listing photos, to the details in the listing description, to the look and feel of every marketing piece.
When you’re in a negotiation, your agent is clearly dedicated to your goals and formulates a strategy that promotes your best interests.
When you’re searching for a home, your agent doesn’t just “put you on a search”. Your agent actively searches for you.
When it comes to communication, your agent anticipates your concerns and proactively communicates with you.
When you have a question, your agent is quick to respond with a thoughtful and thorough answer.
When a problem arises, your agent is a calming influence who invests their time and best thinking to help you overcome your challenge.
Using online reviews to select the right real estate agent
One great way to find a highly-committed realtor is to research online reviews. Look for an agent who receives consistent praise for their high standards and for doing the little things well.
