A good real estate agent can be a great ally in the quest to buy or sell a home. So how do you choose the right Brian/College Station Realtors to work with? First, it is important to remember that the terms “real estate agent” and “Realtor” are not synonymous. Because a Realtor must be a member of the National Association of Realtors and are held to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, Realtors can provide an extra level of service. In fact, the National Association of Realtors has also earned a strong reputation for actively championing private property rights and for working to make home ownership affordable and accessible. Local oversight also keeps Realtors directly accountable to the individual customers they serve and therefore the consumer is more likely to find better service and accountability using a Realtor.
Another way to ensure you pick a qualified professional for your College Station real estate listing is to seek the advice of friends and family. No one has more insight into working with a real estate professional than a current homeowner, so ask friends and family members to explain their experience and what they learned in the process. Keep in mind however, that family and individual may have different needs and this should only be one portion of your search for the right Brian/College Station Realtors.
One way to choose the right Realtor that is often overlooked is to interview your potential candidates, just as you would do your lawyer, banker or doctor. The interview can be as informal as a quick conversation at an open house and a follow-up phone call. All Realtors have different specialties and fields in which they excel. You also want to ensure your chosen Realtor has a personality you’re going to get along with for the next few months!
Some of the most important traits to look for in Bryan/College Station Realtors: familiar with the market, organized, confident, assertive but not obnoxious. All are important traits for successful negotiating.
