Eight important questions to ask your Listing agent

Qualifications are important. However, finding a solid, professional agent means getting beyond the resume, and into what makes an agent effective. Use the following questions as your starting point in hiring your licensed, professional real estate agent:

  1. Are you a full-time or part-time agent?
  2. How many homes have you sold in your career?
  3. Who answers the phone at each number on your For Sale signs?
  4. Do you offer an ‘Easy Exit’ contract so that I can end our agreement if we are not satisfied?
  5. Do you charge a ‘Transaction Fee’ (AKA junk fee), and if yes, who benefits from that fee?
  6. Do you have a team that supports you or are you everything to every client?
  7. Will you be at my buyers inspection and appraisal?
  8. Can you provide me with references or testimonials from past clients?
