Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
I was warned by Bob if I didn’t use an agent that I could run in to trouble and that’s exactly what happened when I had no recourse dealing with my developer concerning some issues with my newly renovated rowhouse. He was right. In the end, you are entitled to so many laws in your favor and Bob knew this. Otherwise, we have been able to lean on Bob for many referrals for random needs such as Mortgage Co., plumber, etc. He’s truly an ace and someone I trust and recommend.Michael Garcia
