Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
Jim is a wonderful realtor for your commercial or residential real estate sale or purchase - he was both a buying agent and a selling agent for us on several occasions and we could not have made a better choice. His knowledge of the local market and experience are second to none!
