Finding the right realtor requires some effort. It takes time to find someone you can build a relationship with, who gets you and your needs. Here are a few pointers to help you find the perfect realtor for you.
This is the best way to start. Ask friends or family if they have anyone they would recommend. Referrals are the best way to find someone that you can trust. Not sure if you will click? Check out their online presence, sometimes you can tell a lot about someone based on how active they are in online communities, what they post on social media and the interests they have. Still not sure? Consider going to a few open houses and see if you click with any of the realtors there. Ask about other properties to see if the agent is familiar with the neighbourhood and price points within that area.
“I have completed two transactions with Carly and she and her team were prompt to answer my questions, were super professional and were experts to navigate the transactions. Since then I have referred her to over 6 new clients who all have amazing feedback about Carly and her team. Her attention to detail and market knowledge were very helpful and needed in the industry. Honesty and integrity are in Carly’s DNA. Thank you Carly for being exactly what real estate needs.” – Natalie Voland
Look for an agent who knows how the market and the type of your specific home you are looking for. Not just someone who knows how to set up an automatic daily search.
The right realtor will also tell you that looking at other properties outside of your wish list is a great way to get a sense of what’s available within your price range and help you decide which property is right for you. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, you’ll want to choose someone who has your best interest at heart, after all, trust is the key.Back to News
