You Like Being Around Them
You’re going to spend a lot of time communicating with your realtor. So the relationship needs to be a good one to help make the experience as painless as possible.
They’re Responsive and Available
He/she should understand how significant this real estate transaction is and how in this market time is of the essence. So we’ll always make your needs a priority.
They Want You to Understand the Entire Process
You don’t need surprises along the way. So the right realtor will educate you to make sure you know, what’s going to happen. What is expected of you and what the process looks like from beginning to end, they’re proactive rather than reactive.
You Shouldn’t Have to Send Property After Property to Your Realtor
A great realtor is on the daily hunt for the ideal property for you. And we’ll communicate and suggest things that you might not have considered before.
They’re Honest with You, Even When it Hurts
He/she will tell you the truth when you need to hear it. Even if it’s inconvenient for them as an ethical imperative, a great realtor will always put their own character, honesty, and integrity ahead of a buck.
They Want to Build a Relationship
The best realtors look to build a relationship with their clients instead of just working with them on a deal and then disappearing.
I think you get the idea! You know you found the right realtor when you like being around them, he /she is responsive, you understand what the selling/buying process entails, and the realtor is proactive, honest with you, and wants to build a relationship, not just another transaction!
