There are many great questions you could ask a real estate agent before hiring them, but today I want to talk about four specific questions that will quickly tell you whether you should work with this person or not.

  1. Does the agent have a lot of experience? You’ll find that agents have varying levels of experience in the market. If you’re unsure about someone, ask about their track record and demand to see an agent report card. 
  2. What is their communication plan for you? This is essential, and you need to be able to get in contact with your Realtor without hassle. Look for someone who is responsive, and someone who will not pass you off to an assistant.
  3. Is this agent passive or active? You don’t want an agent to stick a sign in your yard and hope that it sells (it won’t). You need someone who has a dedicated marketing plan that utilizes social media, Internet marketing, print marketing, and word-of-mouth. 
  4. Does the agent have the tools to sell your home? How do they generate leads? What is their marketing strategy? How will they get buyers inside your home? These are all questions that you need to be asking.

Thank you for your time. If you know someone who needs this information, please don’t hesitate to share it with them. I want to educate as many people as possible.

Thanks for watching!
