How to Hire a Real Estate Agent

All agents are not created equal. This is a reality and why it’s important to choose your agent carefully.

A good agent has several skills that when used appropriately, will result in a better outcome for their clients. Even in a booming seller’s market where buyers are hungry, your agent’s abilities or lack thereof, can make a huge difference to your bottom line.
So choose wisely. We’ve prepared a list of basic questions you should ask any potential agent BEFORE you make the choice. These questions will help you gage the agent’s level of commitment and abilities.

Questions to Ask Your Agent

May I See Your References?

Word of mouth is great but you should also ask for a list of references. Check Google Reviews, Facebook Reviews, and the potential agent’s website for reviews.

What will your marketing plan look like?

Yes, even in a very robust seller’s market, your agent must be prepared with a strong marketing plan. Afterall, the more potential buyers your home has, the more likely that you will receive a full price offer or, an over list price offer. More exposure equals more
potential buyers. Your home will not sell itself- even in the current market. Evaluate the time, money, media channels, data base and strategy of your potential agent. Agents should also have individual websites as well – and not solely rely on the website of their potential brokerage.

Does the agent really know the area?

Having deep, long term connections in the area is really important in deciding on an agent. They can tell you about schools, shopping, which neighborhoods to target and should be a walking encyclopedia of the area. This is also critical when determining or negotiating price – which is not what always commiserate with what appears on paper.

How many active clients do you work with at one time?

Knowing how available an agent is should also be a factor in your decision. Andrea has a small team that makes sure that everyone’s clients are receiving the attention they deserve. If for whatever reason, one the primary team member is not available, The Cueny Team has it covered. Recognizing that an individual team member’s success is the entire team’s success.
