When choosing, it is important to consider not only the size and reputation of the agency, but also and, above all, the agent with whom you will work well as a team in carrying out your important project

Here are just a few of the criteria to consider when choosing your real estate agent:

  • A real estate agent has the expertise to avoid delays or mistakes that can cost you a lot.
  • It has access to even more properties, including those that are not actively advertised.  An agent can help you find these hidden gems. In addition, a good local agent will know the search area better than you would on your own.
  • He has excellent negotiating skills. You can expect a lot of competition, tacticizing, re-bidding and bidding wars. Don't you want smart and professional negotiators to seal the best deal for you? It's not just how much money you end up spending.
  • It will help the client to draw up a contract that allows enough space for unforeseen events and everything else that is crucial to the security of your business.
  • He is affiliated with various companies, he may not know everything, but his mission is to know just about everyone who can possibly help them buy or sell a home. Mortgage brokers, real estate attorneys, home inspectors, home occupants, interior designers - the list goes on - and they're all in your agent's network. Use them.
  • Adhere to a strict code of ethics
  • He is your parent, a data analyst, a therapist. He wears many different hats. Of course he is a salesman, but in reality he makes a whole bunch to earn his commission. He is constantly driving around, checking various real estate offers for you. He spends his money marketing your home (if you sell) and of course works for you almost all hours of the day and night - whether you need more information on the home or just someone to talk to about the deals you have sent. This is the biggest financial (and perhaps emotional) decision in your life and leading you through it is not the responsibility that the agent assumes.
