10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR

10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR®

Homeowners should interview a few potential REALTORS® before deciding on one to sell their home. Here are some smart questions to ask:

1.  How long have you been in the business?
A freshly-licensed REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up-to-date training; those in the business longer bring more practical experience to the table.

2.  What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?
A competent listing REALTOR® should hold a track record for negotiating sales prices that are very close to list prices.

3.  How will your marketing plan meet my needs?
Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often do you advertise? Will you show me a sample flyer? How do you market online?

4.  Will you provide references?
Ask if any of the references are related to the REALTOR®. Ask if you can call their references with additional questions.

5.  What separates you from your competition?
Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, professional, reliable, and able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances.

6.  May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?
A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, the listing agreement and seller disclosure.

7.  How will you help me find other professionals?
Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated”. It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors.

8.  How much do you charge?
You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. It may be a good idea to ask what their commission fee is for your reference.

9.  What kind of guarantee do you offer?
If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement?

10.  What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?
Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know--always.

I have been in the services industry for over 20 years and I have gained a lot of experience interacting with the public and learned many important things such as: treating everyone with respect, maintaining open dialogue in order to avoid miscommunication, being as informative as possible, being punctual and many others which are crucial to exercising my profession.

There are a lot of Real Estate sales representatives out there but, unlike me, very few will always keep your best interests at heart and go that extra mile to assist you in getting the best price when you sell or in finding you and your family the house of your dreams.

My demeanor towards helping you sell your home or finding the right home for you is professional, knowledgeable and sincere.

I became a Real Estate agent to help people with the overwhelming prospect of finding the best home for their families as well as, when it’s time to sell, easing the stress and anxiety of selling it for the best price possible within the least amount of time.

Selling your home or buying the right one is an important step, and having the right Real Estate agent to help you can make all the difference.
