Not all real estate agents are created equal. Most agents that just graduated real estate school tend to charge the same fee as a 30-year veteran. So, what sets them apart?

You must choose wisely when hiring an agent. After all, your home has a lot of equity, especially in this market, and a house is usually most people’s largest purchase.

Here is a list of questions you should ask when interviewing agents:

1. Does the agent offer a cancelation guarantee at any time? We do.

2. Can the agent show their results through statistics? There are a number of important statistics to consider. What is their listings-to-sales ratio? In other words, how many homes do they fail to sell? What is the average days on market for their listing? What’s the list-to-sales price ratio? In other words, how does the final sales price compare to the price the agent set for the home? You should also ask how many homes they have sold in the past year and in their entire career.

3. Does the agent have a specific online marketing plan and overall pricing plan?

Professional photography is crucial since 94% of buyers start their search online.
4. Does the agent have a team of specialists working with them to help you get the home sold? Or is the agent a solo agent?

5. Is the agent full-time or part-time? We are a team of full-time professionals.

6. Do they use professional photography? Professional photography may be expensive but it’s absolutely critical to have it in a market where 94% of buyers begin their search online.

7. Do they know the proper price for your home?

9. Do they know the neighborhood?

10. Do they have the skills, experience, and strategy in place to negotiate successfully on your behalf?

11. Do they have client testimonials?

Please refer to this list when you interview agents because these items are absolutely critical to the success of your real estate transaction.

Why Work With a Real Estate Team Instead of a Single Agent?


Why should you hire a real estate team rather than an individual agent to help you buy or sell a home?

Why should you hire a real estate team instead of a solo agent? There are a number of benefits to working with a team.

On our team, we have eight people working for you for the price of one. First of all, we have a group of buyer specialists. These agents are solely dedicated to helping buyers find homes.

In our market, we often get military or career transfers who only have one week to find a home. They say, “We want to be looking at homes from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.” The good news is that we are able to help you do that thanks to our buyer specialists.

On the other hand, our listing specialists only work with sellers. Their whole focus is to make sure that the home sells. Listing specialists properly market the home and save our sellers thousands of dollars. Since our listing specialists are dedicated to selling your home, they can be very responsive whenever a potential buyer has questions about the home.

In addition to our agents, we have a complete administrative team. Our listing manager helps sellers by making sure all the marketing for their home is done properly.

Our listing and buyer specialists are able to focus solely on you.
Once the house goes under contract, our transaction coordinator steps in to dot the i’s and cross the t’s. The transaction coordinator helps you get from contract to closing.

Finally, we have the director of first impressions at our office to greet our clients and make sure they're being taken care of.

If you’re still wondering why we’ve assembled this team of professionals, think of it this way: When is the last time you went to your doctor’s office and saw the doctor at the reception desk? Does your attorney answer their office phone and book their own schedule, or do they have an assistant?

Just like other professionals, we have broken down the system into individual jobs. That way, each member of our team can help you have the smoothest transaction possible.

If you have any other questions about our team or you would like to learn more about buying or selling a home, just give us a call or send us an email. My team and I would be happy to help you!
