Start by asking your friends, neighbors, and work associates. Chances are they’ve worked with agents in the recent past and will offer referrals. Extend your agent search online, and conduct an online search of names you receive.
Ask your prospective agents for referrals and contact those referrals. Invite your candidates to visit your home and give you a ‘listing presentation’ that demonstrates their skill, market knowledge, and service pledge.
You’ll likely spend a lot of time with your agent so compatibility is essential. Make sure you’re comfortable speaking with your agent, and that your agent listens to you.
