You ask your friend who cuts their hair but not who sold their home?
I am always surprised that buyers sellers would just call an office and work with whomever is on floor(meaning whoever answers the phone). Agents on floor time can be really great, but is the only criteria for picking an agent the one who happened to answer the phone when you called?
With hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line, specific criteria for the job to be done is important.
- Does the agent have an aggressive marketing plan?
- How many homes has the agent sold?
- Are they a full time agent?
- Are they knowledgeable about the inventory and the area you are interested in?
I have a list of at least a dozen questions I've been asked while interviewing for the job of selling a home and working as a buyers agent... What do you think the most important question to ask is?
