What You Should Ask a Prospective Real Estate Agent?

If you are planning to sell your home or buy a home - or both - please call me for an introductory interview. During the interview we can discuss the following questions which are recommended by the National Association of REALTORS®. At the same time, we can review your home’s value. 

  • Are you a licensed real estate broker or salesperson?
  • How long have you been licensed?
  • Are you a member of the National Association of REALTORS®?
  • Have you earned any professional real estate designations?
  • What professional courses or training sessions have you attended recently?
  • How long have you actively worked in this area or neighborhood?
  • How many homes have you closed in the past three months?
  • Do you work full-time selling homes?
  • How long has your company been in business?
  • How many agents work out of your company?
  • Does your company participate in a multiple listing service?
  • Does your company have a relocation service or work regularly with out-of-town clients?

Here are additional questions for home sellers:

  • What are the names of three references whose homes you’ve recently sold?
  • How actively will you work to sell my home?
  • What kind of marketing plan will you employ?
  • How often can I expect to get a progress report?
