Chapter 4. How do I find the right agent to work with?

The key word is work. While there is no shortage of nice and “fun to work with” agents to choose from, it is important that you find one who can fully understand your wants, needs and individual tastes. At the same time, you will want to be able to respect his or her personal and professional judgment.

Below are a few guidelines. Above all, look for someone that you are comfortable with and that you can trust.

1) Choose an agent with whom you feel at ease, and with the skills you need: a good listener, long-time experience, and one who isn’t in the business just for this one transaction–but will treat you as a “Client for Life”.

2) Find an agent who really understands the benefits and advantages to you of representing you as an exclusive Buyer’s Agent.

3) Pick an agent who has strong negotiating skills–once you find your “dream home” and it is time to make an offer, you want someone who will be a strong advocate for you when negotiating the offer! The right negotiator can save you literally thousands of dollars at the negotiating table. On the other hand he has a feel for the market and knows how much to push and when to act in order to get the house you want.

4) Select a realtor who will be around after the offer is accepted. Acceptance of the offer by all parties does not mean that it is all over. At least half of the work to be done in a transaction is after acceptance of the offer by both parties. Many agents are too busy, or don’t give a high priority to handling this phase properly.
