Politicians, Used Car Sales and Real Estate
Agents – we don’t generally rank highly in opinion polls. So how do you find an Agent
you can trust? I’m Karen Jones, mother, dog lover, friend,
business woman, Real Estate Agent and I’m here to help you find someone who is just
as interested in your property as you are! I am confident most people working in Real
Estate are decent human beings, however, if your experiences haven’t all been positive,
choosing an agent to sell your home can be hard. So how do you find someone you can trust? Here are some quick guidelines you can use: Do they tell you things you might not want
to hear? It’s great for your agent to be optimistic,
but if you feel that’s all you’re hearing, it may be that they are not being entirely
honest with you. Be wary of empty promises of a definite time frame and guaranteed sale
price. Do they conduct themselves professionally?
Good manners go a long way. Take note if they arrive on time and follow through on promises
made. Do you receive return phone calls and friendly, professional replies to emails?
It’s a good indication of how they conduct themselves with potential buyers. Do they keep you up to date?
A good agent will be contacting you regularly with updates on how the marketing process
of your property is going. Honest feedback is important as it allows you to adjust strategies
if needed. There are agents and then there are great
agents. Expect to be treated with professionalism, honesty and courtesy from the person orchestrating
one of the biggest transactions of your life. If you’re thinking of selling, I invite
