Your realtor has an amazing social media presence, but is your realtor present with you?

At best, working with a distracted realtor can be frustrating. And at worst, risky and dangerous. For example, imagine negotiating your home inspection when your agent is distracted. The consequences can be huge when your agent isn't dialed in.  

Distracted Realtor

Is your realtor fully present with you and your best interests? 

Here are 3 questions that will help you discern the quality of your agent's attention.

#1) Does your realtor pick up the phone and return your calls promptly? Going a step further, is your agent eager and willing to meet with you in person? In the world of real estate, where the stakes are often high, sometimes there is no substitute for an old-fashioned conversation.

#2) Does your agent respond to your texts and emails in a thorough and timely manner? One trend we are noticing with increasing frequency is the tendency for some realtors to scan and skim emails and text messages, rather than read them. Important details are being missed because messages aren't being read. 

#3) Throughout your relationship, does your realtor actively listen to you and proactively communicate with you so you always feel well-informed and understood? Or are they more reactive and do they wait for you to initiate all communication?

There's no doubt, we live in a distracted world.

So, whether you're hiring an attorney, an accountant, a financial planner, or a real estate agent, we encourage you to do your homework and do your best to discern that person's quality of attention. When you do hire Mad City Dream Homes for your real estate needs, we want you to know you're choosing to work with a group of focused professionals. You have our word that we'll always be present for you, in a world where there will always be distractions trying to compete for our attention.
