Find the right REALTOR for YouTerry Riffe | June 17, 2015
When searching for a real estate professional, or REALTOR, it’s helpful to start your search by meeting with agents that have assisted family or friends that you know and trust. During your meeting, ask if he or she is a REALTOR®, a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, and a professional who holds themselves to a higher ethical standard.
You can also look up REALTOR®’s licensing information; state regulatory boards are happy to assist you in your search and will let you know of any disciplinary action or complaints. However, NAR research shows that nearly nine out of ten recent buyers were satisfied with their REALTORS® honesty and integrity, knowledge of the purchase process, and knowledge of the real estate market.
Another way to find a REALTOR® is to look at their current listings. The presentation of a REALTOR®’s listings and how fast properties sell can give you an indication of a REALTOR®’s selling skills. Be sure to read reviews on each REALTOR® that you consider. There are many sights that allow you to see a particular REALTOR®’s listings and reviews together, such as Zillow or trulia .
