Choosing the right real estate agent is a big decision and is key to getting the best result for your property. However, it can be hard to trust someone with the business of selling your home.
Here are Call2View's top tips for selecting the perfect agent for your home.
Does the Agent know your audience?
The agent should be able to give you a thorough snapshot of the area that you are selling in, and surrounding areas. This includes knowing what other properties are in the area for sale and if any others have sold recently. Having a solid understanding of competition will help you understand whom you’re up against.
It is also important they know about the local amenities, demographics and type of buyers looking to purchase or rent in the area.

Do you feel comfortable?
It is important that you feel comfortable with the agent, as during the selling process you need to be extremely honest. Ensuring that you are comfortable with the agent means that the conversation can be open and honest.
Are they good communicators?
Buying and selling a house can be a stressful situation, even more so when the agent will not return your calls.
Real estate is a time sensitive industry, so you need to have an agent who is in constant contact, telling you where you stand with your current buying or selling situation, so you can move on quickly if need be.
You want someone who will keep you in the loop at all times and will answer calls and emails promptly.
They aren’t afraid to give you their last 10 clients as references
This is one of the best ways to make sure you are going to an agent who knows what they are doing. A good agent should be able to give you a positive reference for any of their past clients. You want an agent whose reputation who precedes them.
