When looking for a Waukesha County real estate agent one of the most important thing you want to establish is that the agent can utilize their time management correctly. How is that you say? Well, lets look at some things that are important and some things that are crucial. When you hire an agent you first of all would expect that agent to return your calls. There are times that calls go to my
cell phone or voice mail but I firmly believe everyone deserves a call back. Not a week from now, don't forget the call, but return it in a fashionable and timely manner. It drives me nuts when people that do far less business never return their calls, and top it off with a phone message saying they return their calls between 1-2:30 in the afternoon. If you were my agent I would have fired you a long time ago with that attitude. This business is all about timing and being available when you need to put a transaction together, or keep it together for your client.
In the Waukesha County real estate market I always value my clients input and often it can really help me. If I have your home listed it is pretty fair to say no one knows your home better than you. The details, the updates, and everything in between; I rely on you to tell me key
important factors that will help assist me in getting your home sold. Beware of the know it all agent that says they know what it takes and that all homes are the same. They are not. If they would be buyers would send in a check because they would know that they are all the same. Instead, buyers have a real good idea of what they want and when a buyer shops there are very elemental things that allow those "bells and whistles" to go off. I value your input, others should as well.
In Waukesha County real estate always, and I mean always make sure you know how an agent will approach selling your home from the time you interview them until the RESPA is being signed and the lien waivers are turned over to the title company. Know exactly where it is advertised, how the calls are handled, who is going to be handing all the aspects of the sale and closing process, and make sure you fully understand the settlement pages and closing statements. You do get what you pay for and that saying has never been more true than it is now.
Make sure you are in your comfort zone and you know you can work with the agent you wish to hire. I personally have a guarantee that say if at anytime you are not happy with the services and job I am doing you can withdrawal the listing at anytime, providing I do not already have an offer on the property. I built a business out of my reputation of being able to get homes sold, and by helping buyers find the home they really want and they are happy. If you can't get a hold of your agent or no one in their office has a clue about your home then that could be a flag
