Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
Thank you for finding a buyer for our home in Missouri City, Texas. I am impressed with your ability to not only understand the real estate market generally, but your ability to actually produce buyers. Furthermore, you were able to understand and motivate the prospective buyers in a way that they became enthusiastic buyers. This ability you possess is the difference between listing a house and getting it ready to show on the one hand and finding an interested, qualified buyer on the other. That difference is huge. The former is marketing, but the latter is selling. We had previously engaged other, well known brokers in the area to sale our house with very little success. Within weeks of you having listed the house, you produced at least two prospective buyers who were truly interested in buying the house. There were problems that had to be solved in the process--and you solved them. When you focus on a particular house for sale, you seem to be able to shift into another gear and get the job done. We truly appreciate the way you handled our real estate needs.
