Questions For Your Realtor

If you are like most home buyers and sellers, chances are you’ll want a qualified real estate agent to help you through the process. Agents act as liaisons between buyers and sellers, and can bring valuable experience, expertise, local knowledge and negotiating skills to the table – all of which can save you effort, time and money.

1. Do you work part-time or full-time as a real estate agent?

The housing market moves quickly, so it often pays to have someone who is a full-time real estate agent working daily on your behalf. It can become a challenge to schedule showings, meetings and closings around someone else’s full-time job.

2. Is your license in good standing?

It’s a good idea to ask potential agents if their license is in good standing, and if they’ve had any complaints or lawsuits filed against them. Most states have an online system that allows consumers to check the status of an agent’s license.

2. Is your license in good standing?

This is tricky because more years of experience don’t always equate to a better agent. New agents may not have the same insight as veterans, but they may work harder for you as they launch their careers – and reputations.
