Traits to Look for in a Real Estate Agent

MILL VALLEY – If you’re planning to sell your home, the first thing you should do is find a quality real estate agent. Here are a few traits to look for in an agent:

A “clients first” mindset
Look for an agent who will put your best interests first, negotiate on your behalf and guide you toward making a sound decision.

Communication
A real estate transaction can be an intense and complicated process, so you’ll want an agent who keeps you in the loop and is available to answer your questions.

Experience
A seasoned real estate agent with plenty of experience will be well-versed in the transaction process, adept at negotiating and able to avoid common pitfalls.

A “get it done” attitude
Some agents will put a house on the market but put minimal effort into promoting it after the fact. To avoid this, hire someone who will commit to getting your home sold, even if that means showing it every weekend.
