Not Every Massachusetts Real Estate Agent is Created Equal!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executive

When we buy or sell a home, the rest of our day-to-day activities tend to get less attention. When an offer comes in (or doesn’t) — or when we have to wait on pins and needles to hear if the home of our dreams will be ours — the rest of what’s going on takes a back seat. That is because buying and selling real estate involves not only significant sums of money, but also crucial and emotional decisions about the center of our family’s activities.

At such a life-changing crossroad, most people decide that it’s a good idea to work with a local professional real estate agent. But since not all real estate agents are equally well equipped to provide the same quality of support, the questions is, how to choose?

 

The following are 3 potential red flags:

 

1. Non-communicative

Your real estate agent is working for you: you should be their priority. A real estate agent who is not communicative is either not invested in working hard for you, or is not organizing his or her real estate processes effectively. Everyone is slow to return a phone call once. Twice is a red flag!

2. Too Much Pressure

A real estate professional’s job is to offer guidance and provide resources that would be hard to get on your own — not to boss you around. The selling and buying process is ultimately about you and what you want and need, not about your agent making a fast sale. If something about a potential transaction makes you uncomfortable, your real estate agent should respect that.

3. Former Disciplinary Problems

Every real estate agent in Massachusetts must be licensed. State agencies record complaints and disciplinary actions. Before you start working with an agent, check that no disciplinary actions have been filed against her or him.

With so much on the line, the importance of working with a top-tier real estate agent is unquestionable. If you are ready to start interviewing agents, I welcome the opportunity to put my resources to work for you!

When you are buying a home or selling a home start by working with a seasoned real estate professional who will keep your best interests at heart! I have helped home buyers and sellers for over 25 years. I’ll be there for you throughout the entire process! I can also refer you to reputable mortgage lenders, home inspectors and contractors.

Don’t forget, you can stay on top of Metro West real estate with my FREE monthly newsletter and market updates! The Market Insider report is also free and packed with  useful information.

When you have questions about real estate, contact me first! I will provide the latest sales data and the market experience you can trust!
