When it’s time to buy or sell a home or condo, a crucial step in the process is finding the right real estate agent.  Working with the right agent can mean more money in your pocketbook, your home spending less time on the market, and an overall buying or selling process filled with fewer headaches.  Considering the many different real estate agents that are out there, how do you find the right one?

For starters, you’ll probably want to approach the agent you’re considering as if you were conducting a job interview.  Ask all necessary questions, take a moment to evaluate more than one agent, and don’t make any final decisions until you’ve fully vetted the person you feel is best.  Remember that your needs and goals are entirely unique, so pay strict attention to how the agent is communicating with you.  If he or she is treating you like just another generic client, it’s probably better to move on with someone willing to give you personalized services.

Particularly when selling your home, time is of the essence.  Talk with your prospective real estate agent to see what marketing plan or strategy they have in place to help you sell your home.  The bulk of marketing will probably be done online, as print has become less of a viable medium.
