Choosing the right listing agent to help you sell your home can be very stressful and frustrating at time. Having the internet at your fingertips can come in handy, but how do you know if they are good and not just a cute little face (or handsome) person? There has to be more to a picture, website, awards and words about them. The Rockel Group
Finding the right agent to help you sell your home is about the interview process. I have noticed more seller’s are interviewing at least 3-4 agents before choosing the right agent to help them sell their home. That’s great and can be overwhelming trying to figure out what you are really looking for in an agent. Before making that decision, you need to have a set of questions ready for all the interviews. That time is not just a time for you to interview the listing agent, it’s a time for that agent to interview you as well. If that listing agent is prepared and good at what they do, they will have their own set of questions for you. This will help them decide your motivation and to make sure you both will be able to work together well during the process. It’s kinda like dating when you're listing your home, you have to talk to eachother and communication is the key to making sure the process runs smooth.
Choosing the right agent has to be about more than what their real estate company can do for you, its about how well that agent knows the market and the numbers. 
You also want an agent that will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. The worst thing you can do is hire an agent because they will list your  home at the price you want. That is only delaying the inevitable of frustration, disappointment and hate for real estate agents. Plus, not getting your home sold!

Prior to meeting with a listing agent to help sell your home, you need to start preparing your home to sell...declutter, your home. A great agent will walk through your home and give you advice and tips on making sure your home is ready to go on the market. Your first few weeks on the market are the most important time and you don’t always get a second chance, so be prepared and take the advice you get from the listing agent you hire. If you need help with figuring out what your home is worth in the Fayetteville, NC and surrounding areas call, 910-583-3817 text or e-mail me. I would love the opportunity to be the listing agent you hire to sell your home!

Good suggestion to have a list of questions before meeting the first agent.  Then you can ask all the agents the same questions to make sure you find the agent that works the best for and with you.
