How to Find and Choose a Real Estate Agent

How can you tell whether a real estate agent is honest and trustworthy...or not so much? Author and Fox Financial Correspondent, Gerri Willis, tells you what to look for when choosing a real estate agent.
 
Real estate agents are hired for their expertise. While every real estate agent has access to the same information, experience levels and specific performance are unique to each individual agent.
 
A friend or relative, with a real estate license, may not possess the knowledge, skills or experience required to sell your property or to fully represent you as a buyer. Just as there are different types of medical professionals, engineers or accountants, real estate agents should be interviewed to determine their precise talents, knowledge, proficiency and most definitely, value.

It's a real shame that the real estate brand is not a consideration in selecting a real estate agent. It appears the real estate brand no longer brings anything to the transaction for the buyer or seller and only matters in what services they provide the agent for the fees they pay.
