There are three questions I recommend asking any agent before partnering with them to accomplish your real estate goals. 

  1. What’s their experience? This doesn’t necessarily mean how many years they’ve been in business, but rather how many transactions they’ve completed in the last 12 months. The average Realtor sells about seven homes a year, so any agent selling less than this probably lacks the kind of experience you should expect from the person you hire. 
  2. What is the contact information for their last three clients? An agent who has had success with their past transactions should be happy to put you in contact with people who can vouch for them.
    “With the summer market approaching quickly, it’s important to find out how an agent plans to set you up for success.”
  3. What will this agent do to make your home stand out? The summer market is quickly approaching. It’s important to find out how an agent plans to set you above the competition, especially if you’re a buyer. Multiple offer situations are common in the summer months, so it’s important that the Realtor you hire has a strategy for your success. Sellers, on the other hand, need to work with someone who will be able to help them capitalize on these hot conditions.
