With many new buyers and sellers entering the market right now, a lot of people are searching for an agent. Picking an agent that fits you and your needs is a key part of the process! Let’s go over some factors to consider if you’re searching for a real estate agent.
You want to pick an agent who is experienced, but you also want to make sure they have the workload capacity to meet your needs. The last thing you want is to have to track down your agent because they’re too busy with other clients or treat their real estate profession as a side job.
It can be helpful to ask friends and family what agents they’ve worked with in the past. Find out what they did or didn’t like about working with their agent and what overall experience they had with them.
Once you have some agents in mind, you’ll want to look through their reviews online. Check Google, Zillow, and social media. You can also read the bio on their website or on Zillow to get an idea of their personality.
Ultimately, experience is a factor in identifying the right agent for you, but keep in mind that real estate and technology are fast-moving industries. Make sure you find someone who stays up-to-date with the latest technology and trends. Sometimes an agent has the most experience but doesn’t keep up with the best uses of modern technology. Advanced digital marketing is a critical aspect in real estate, especially if you are selling your home.
