Interviewing a Listing Agent

RPM believes that it is important to thoroughly evaluate the professionals that you will be working with during your relocation. The more informed you are about the people you are working with, the more comfortable you will be during your transfer.

 

Below are a few questions to keep in mind when deciding upon a listing agent.

 

§  Do you work full-time or part-time as a real estate agent?

§  How many homes have you sold in my neighborhood?

§  How many other sellers are you representing now?

§  Will you handle all aspects of my transaction or will you delegate some tasks to a sales associate or administrative assistant?

§  At what price do you think my home can sell given the current market?

§  Can I list my home with you for 60 to 90 days?

§  How many years of education or experience do you have?

§  Are you also a broker and/or a Realtor?

§  Can you provide the contact info for past clients who have agreed to be references?

§  Is your license in good standing?
