When choosing a real estate agent to represent you it is always a good idea to find a REALTOR®. This title means the agent is a licensed salesperson that belongs to the National Association of REALTOR®. A REALTOR® is held to a higher ethical standard far beyond that of other real estate agents, which means they’re more likely to manage your transaction to the best of their ability, you can read more about “what makes a REALTOR®” here.
Here are five quick tips on how to interview real estate agents:
- Pick three real estate agents to meet in person.
- Do a bit of research by viewing each of the real estate agent’s websites, and determine if they have the specialized experience needed to successfully handle a sale in probate or trust.
- Ask them to email references; contact some of the references and ask about their experience working with the aforementioned agent.
- Determine the top 10 questions or concerns that you have, and be willing to present them to each of the real estate agents. Listen carefully to their answers.
- Consider your head, heart and your gut; choose the real estate agent that is right for you and your current situation.
