Tips for finding a Real Estate Agent you'll love!

Were you looking for “the one” this Valentine’s Day? You know, someone who will be attentive to your wants and needs, always openly communicate with you and be there for you whenever you call? Yes? Well, then you’ve come to the right place! That is, if you’re talking about finding a real estate agent that’s perfect for you… that is what you were talking about, right?! Well, we may not be love gurus, but we do know a 

thing or two about helping buyers and sellers. So, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’ve got a few tips for buyers and sellers, who may have been looking for real-estate-agent love in all the wrong places!

When it comes to real estate agents, you may not always find love at first sight. Of course, it is possible that you may have an instant connection with that one agent that you happen to meet at an open for inspection but, when you’re looking for an agent to represent your needs, it is important to talk with 3-4 professionals before you decide that you’ve found the perfect person to work with. 

This tip includes mentioning everything from an agent’s credentials to their former clients. The internet is a great tool for checking up on a potential real estate agent’s credentials and licensing, but it is OK to do it the old-fashioned way and ask prospective agents about their work with former clients. This may give you a good idea of what your professional relationship with them will be like.

Now, we’re not saying that you have to let your mum “set you up” with her next door neighbour’s son or daughter, who just happens to be a professional real estate agent, but it is a good idea to get some referrals from friends, family members or even co-workers when it comes to picking the right agent. 

These days, you’re not always going to run into “the one” at the grocery store, bank or another local hot spot – particularly when it comes to finding the right real estate agent. When you begin your research online, don’t be afraid to also start searching for your perfect agent. In all seriousness, scanning an agent’s professional social media sites may be a great way to get a feel for their professionalism, reputation and current client experiences. Also start to take notice of the real estate fliers you receive in the mail – are they of high quality standard?

Real estate agents are known for having connections when it comes to professionals who can assist with your home sale. When you find an agent, they should be able to put you in touch with trusted service providers like conveyancers, lenders or valuers who can help you through the sale’s process. Make sure that you find an agent who’s willing to introduce you to their professional “friends!”

Maybe you did love the first real estate agent you interviewed. Maybe you fell in love with the seventh one you met. Whoever makes you feel the most comfortable and motivated about your future home sale or purchase may be the one that’s right for you. When it comes down to it, no one can tell you who you love… even when you’re talking about real estate agents. The bottom line for falling in love with an agent that will help you with your home sale? Trust your instincts!

So, even when you’ve found “the one”, there is still work to do, right? Of course, this is true in every relationship! And, it is especially two-fold when it comes to selecting a real estate agent. For a successful relationship with your real estate agent, you’ve got to remember to keep the communication lines open. If you are not happy with the way your transaction is going, tell your agent. Likewise, your agent should openly answer your questions and tell you about any issues or progress that is going on with your transaction.
