How To Choose A Real Estate Agent

Ruby Hill Homes in Pleasanton

Selling homes isn’t easy. That’s why it is imperative to find a Realtor®® that truly knows the tricks of the trade.

With the plethora of real estate agents around, it can be difficult to find just the right one! Keep reading to find out how to get the best agent for your Ruby Hill home in Pleasanton CA.

Ask your friends, neighbors, and relatives

Have any of your friends recently sold a house? Or maybe someone in your neighborhood just moved in. Ask who their Realtor® was and if they were satisfied with the service.

Google the agent and read their reviews. Also, check out their Facebook or LinkedIn profiles. That’s always a good, easy way to start.

How many listings has the agent sold within the last year?

Some agents only sell houses on a part time basis. Others take this profession to the next level and deliver excellent results.

Find out how successful and competent an agent is by checking their track record. A great agent sells a lot of homes, and does it fast. This is the kind of person you want handling your home.

How long has the agent been in the business?

Some Realtors® are new, and some are experienced. Only few are true veterans and masters of the craft.

Sure, an agent might have all the certificates needed, but without going through the School of Hard Knocks, it doesn’t mean much.

How much does the agent know about the area?

Ruby Hill homes in Pleasanton CA are some of the finest in the state. The agent representing you and your home ought to know more than a thing or two about the town. They’ve really got to know it like the back of their hand!

When an agent knows the area well, this means their network of other agents and potential buyers for your home is wide and deep. They know who to contact to get word of your listing out, and they can find just the right match for your specific situation.

How do you feel about the agent?

Of course, in the end it really boils down to how the agent makes you feel. Does the agent confidently tell you that he can sell your home in a few months? Or does the agent exude an air of uncertainty, making you wonder if your home will ever sell?

Pick an agent you feel comfortable with. The agent will be your partner for the next few months or so. He will be your advocate in the negotiation process, your walking, talking encyclopedia when the paperwork comes in, and your representative all throughout the process.
