Choosing the Right Real Estate Agent / Realtor

How to Choose the Right Real Estate Agent

Buying or selling a home is no small feat, and it’s one of the biggest financial decisions of your life. That’s why finding a real estate agent with experience to guide you through the process is key.

Consider these steps for finding the right agent:

  • Check out the local housing market in person
  • Mingle with listing agents at open houses
  • Compare agent reviews
  • Ask for referrals
  • Interview at least three agents
  • Ask the right questions
  • Share your communication preferences
  • Clarify your motivation for selling
  • Discuss a selling strategy
  • Request a quote

Whether you’re a first-time seller or you’ve done it all before, selling a home can be a complicated and stressful experience. It’s no wonder that 89 percent of sellers choose to list with a real estate agent, according to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report.

Popular reasons why people choose to use an agent include their ability to attract interested buyers (89 percent), their ability to guide sellers through the process of selling (82 percent), and their handling of contract negotiations (82 percent).
