In our vast experience in working with home sellers, the following are some of the characteristics sellers say they need in a Realtor:

  •  Experience – Let new agents learn the business on somebody else’s dime.
  • Education – Ask about degrees and certifications.
  • Honesty – Trust your intuition. Your agent should speak from the heart.
  • Networking – This is a people business. Some homes sell because agents have contacted other agents.
  • Negotiation skills – You want an aggressive negotiator, not somebody out to make a quick sale at your expense.
  • Good communicator – Sellers say communication and availability are key.
  • Finally, ask for a personal guarantee. If the agent won’t guarantee performance and release you from a listing upon request, don’t hire that agent.
