Choosing an Agent

Deciding on an agent can be difficult, however, the are some things you can look for. First and foremost, choose someone whom you are comfortable with. Your agent should be someone who is an efficient negotiator, and that can protect your interests at all times. Your agent should also be knowledgeable about the local real estate market and new laws concerning and affecting real estate in your area. In addition, your agent should be honest with you, even when you don't want to hear the truth, he or she should give proper time estimates, disclose all costs, and make sure you approve of all actions.
