Buying a home is a huge decision and you want to know that you have a team of experts who are working toward your end goal in your corner. When you begin the process of finding a realtor, ask around and see who your friends, family, co-workers, etc have used. It’s always nice to know someone who has had success with the realtor. Whether you’re a first time home buyer or a seasoned veteran, you should consider this checklist of before choosing a realtor.
Lastly, choosing a realtor is like anything else, you want to make sure that the chemistry is right. Be sure to meet with him or her beforehand to check on that. Sometimes the process can take a long time and if you don’t like the way your realtor communicates or something, it could be a painful process. To that end, even if you’ve already chosen your realtor and have already begun the process, don’t be afraid to speak up if you don’t like what they’re doing (or what they’re not doing). This is, for many people, the biggest purchase of your life, now is not the time to keep quiet.
