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.
Ben is great! He was willing to drive all around creation to show us places, and had great “extra hands” when he couldn’t make it himself. Once we got into negotiations, he worked hard and fast to make sure we got the best deal possible and he gave us good advice as to how to handle negotiations. When time became an issue, he worked hard to make sure everyone was on schedule. We would definitely work with Ben again. Thank you for getting us our first family home!Stephanie Heath
