When selecting a real estate agent it is important to consider the following:

Does The Agent...

  • Listen to your needs?

  • Provide multiple phone numbers so they can be easily reached?

  • Return phone calls promptly?

  • Explain information and processes so you understand?

  • Do business frequently in your neighborhood?

  • Seem conversant about local market conditions?

  • Seem knowledgeable?

  • Have access to the Multiple Listing Service?

  • Have a detailed written marketing plan (if you are a seller)?

Whether you are buying or selling a home, you need an agent with whom you can comfortably work with and who is professional at all times. Someone who is aggressive and has laid out a practical plan for you, using your housing guidelines:

  • Find out how well the agent knows the areas that you are considering

  • Inquire about credentials, licensing and areas of expertise

  • Learn if the agent and agency belongs to the Multiple Listing Service

  • Ask about the types of homes the agent typically deals with. Are these similar to what you are buying and/or selling?

Look for an agency that provides more than just house hunting. Some offerings to look for:

  • School and community information

  • A customized relocation packet with information about the city, housing market, mortgage financing and local real estate

  • A service to find medical personnel

  • An agency that can assist you with rental property if you need interim housing

  • Particulars about volunteer organizations, activities, day care facilities and retirement centers

If you do not believe an agent is doing a thorough job for you, or you feel uncomfortable with this person, choose someone else. You will be spending a lot of time with your agent and will rely on him/her for credible information, so make sure you like and trust your representative.


It is important to be organized and prepared when searching for a new home and making sure you understand the process. This Checklist will help you begin your process.

Follow up Check List:

Serious Buyers! It is time to get started. Do not pull your credit for anything other than your mortgage process (shopping for home owners insurance will require a credit check, wait until near the end of process before doing so, ask your loan officer first). Applying for a credit card just to get a free gift is a bad idea.
