What qualities to look for when choosing a real estate agent

Tenacity
Sellers want an agent that is tenacious. They follow up quickly after every time the home is shown. They appear to work hard and they rarely give up.

Aggressive yet polite attitude
The best agent is not afraid to speak up. He or she should be just as promotional about the seller’s home as if it was their own. By being aggressive, the agent is working hard to put the home in the forefront of the local market.

Knowledge of
technology
An agent that can use technology with ease is going to be more up-to-date on the market in the area. They will also be more likely to be an organized person who has their act together. This is the type of person sellers want helping to sell their homes.

Honesty
Sellers need an honest agent, one that will tell them like it is, even if they’re not the easiest to hear. This type of person will lay out exactly what the seller can expect, from sale price to timing and more. In the end, honesty will save sellers lots of worry.

Hardworking
A realtor should appear to be tireless and should work on the sale of each home as if it was the most important thing in their life.

They can adapt
It is important that an agent is able to ‘read’ their client. Some clients like to communicate via email, some prefer a quick text message and others like to receive a phone call so they can have a chat about what’s happening with their sale.

They listen
If you can’t get a word in when communicating with your agent, then you’ve got a problem. As a client or customer, you’re the one who should be doing most of the talking and making sure that your agent understands your special requests and needs. A good agent should be asking all the questions not the other way around.
