During the course of our lives, we may end up buying and selling a lot of things but none as expensive, precious or useful than buying your own home. Whether you are selling your lifetime home or an investment property, finding and choosing a real estate agent is a big decision. Here are few things that need to be considered while choosing right real estate agent:

Research

There are many different real estate agencies on the market that you can choose from. Do your homework and research potential agents by considering the strongest contenders. Meet each of them personally if possible in order to get insight into how they work, their years of experience, working style as an agent in order to determine if they will be a good match for you. It is also recommended to review an agent’s online presence because their web testimonials and reviews will also that help you in your decision-making.

Check the credentials

Not anyone can become a real estate agent (and neither should they!). Before signing up with an agent, you must check their credentials and licensing for authenticity. The most common and respected credentials for realtors in the United states include accreditation from the- NAR(National Association of Realtors), ABR(Accredited Buyers Representative), CIPS(Certified International Property Specialist) and SRES(Senior Real Estate Specialist).

Interview

We talked a little bit about this in the section on research, but here are some more details  on gathering information by meeting agents in person. Ask all the agents you meet as many questions as possible to get a sense of whether or not a particular agent is right for you. After conducting interviews, you can also cross-check the information by looking at advertising listings on the agent’s website, national website or even local advertising. Go through the details such as price range, experience and how easy they are to work with before making your informed decision

Talk to recent clients

If you really want to know the reliability and trustworthiness, or even just get a real feel for what it is like to work with a certain agent, you can also request a list of what they’ve listed and sold in the past year along with their clients’ details. This will help you catch any red flags before you make a commitment. Also,if the agent is especially good, you’ll know that too by talking to his or her previous clients.
