Some Additions to the Standard Questions
When planning to sell or rent a property, landlords or sellers should always have a list of questions to ask each REALTOR® when interviewing their prospective agent.
It’s important to know your agent is full time, has experience or works with experienced REALTORS®, and can implement a successful marketing plan. There are other core questions, but there are also some that don’t receive the attention they deserve.
Does This Agent Play Well With Others?
As important as market questions and overall strategy, what are your REALTOR’s® view on working with other agents?
How will your REALTOR® handle…
The Phone…is it answered or is the call returned immediately?
Marketing…will your listing be updated promptly so agents aren’t showing my home that’s already under contract or rented?
Pictures…will there be pictures, high quality pictures, and lots of them?
Showings…will your REALTOR®or his/her office schedule the showings or will a buyer’s REALTOR® be turned over to a call center company that has no knowledge of the area, real estate or what you wrote in the Multiple Listing Service?
Outside websites…will your selected agent give all info available, including the address?
So when selecting a REALTOR® add this question to your list,
“Do you play well with others?”
