Finding A Great Buyers Agent

Stack of Colorful Sticky Notes 1. Experience matters ask how long the agent has been in business and how many buyer side transactions they’ve closed.

2. Only work with full-time agents.  A part-time agent can only offer part-time service and great service requires full-time effort.

3. Your friend or relative may be a wonderful person but that doesn’t make them a great buyers agent.

Here’s an example of what I’m talking about.

4. All men may be created equal but all agents are not. Many agents have no desire to improve their skills. Great buyers agents are continually seeking ways to gain more knowledge, improve their performance and offer better service to their clients.

All that alphabet soup below an agents name actually stands for something. Ask them to tell you about the designations and what they mean.

5. Ask for recent references from previous clients and from listing agents they’ve worked with. A great buyers agent should be able to supply you with the names and phone numbers of a couple of listing agents that they’ve successfully worked with, if not, keep looking.

6. Google them and read some of the blog posts they’ve written. You can tell a lot about a buyers agent by the posts they write.

7. And last but certainly not least, personality counts. You’re going to be spending a fair amount of time with this person, if they are pushy, arrogant or rude with those around them, keep looking. Personalities don’t improve after 3 hours of previewing homes.
