Secure your investment when you seek the help of the best real estate agent.
Like many other Americans, your Pleasanton CA home is probably the biggest financial investment you've ever made. If you're thinking of selling it, considering how valuable it is for you, you obviously would only want the help of the best Realtor® in Pleasanton.
But there are plenty of agents and Realtors® in Pleasanton, so how do you choose the best one?
Choosing means having options, so start by narrowing down your options.
Selecting the best real estate agent.
You need to have a basis of comparison. Just like finding the best restaurant or best drinks, you need the right selections.
Here are five things you can do to find the best Pleasanton Realtor®.
1. Create your shortlist. Ask referrals from people you know who have sold homes. Ask recommendations from your friends and family members.
Great Realtors® have a strong online presence and previous customers aren't intimidated to give feedback or reviews of how they think the agent performed.
2. Take the time to talk to the agents. Learn how long they have been working. You want someone who has been licensed for more than five years. It can be difficult to entrust your hard-earned investment to someone who is new.
You have to know how they work under pressure, their current listings, about homes they’ve sold, their marketing plan, etc. You want to have first-hand knowledge on the agent's communication and social skills, and more importantly, find out if they connect well with you.
3. Ask for any professional awards or recognition. An agent can proclaim himself or herself as the best agent, but without any awards or recognition to back up that claim, you'd know he or she isn't the best one.
4. Choose the one with the right credentials. Like doctors and lawyers, agents also have specialties. Some of the designations are :
CRS means Certified Residential Specialist, someone who has completed additional training in real estate.
ABR means Accredited Buyer's Representative, someone who has completed additional education as a buyer's representative.
SRES means Seniors Real Estate Specialist, someone who has completed training in helping clients age 50 and above.
Of course, you know that a Realtor® means an agent who has sworn an oath to work within the parameters of a code of ethics and a member of NAR.
5. Choose someone who is continually educating herself, learning and adapting to the constantly changing real estate market. Find an agent who does not stop learning, who doesn’t just rely on what she knows, but still aims to improve and get better.
