We want your real estate experience did not just be something you remember but something you look back on with fondness and that means having a great experience with a fantastic agent. All of our agents go through rigorous continuing education for the knowledge and know-how but nothing beats experience and nothing beats the personal attention that someone with great customer service truly has. So here are five things that a great real estate agent should do.
#1. Best foot forward.
Obviously, regardless of the profession, you want someone that is going to put their best foot forward and give 100%. Our agents utilize all of their knowledge in the field as well as their education to formulate a plan and carry it through. We want to know about your needs so that we get you exactly what you want whether it’s the price on your sold house or the right house to move into. We want to give you the information you need to help you make an informed decision.
#2. Utmost respect.
You have to have a healthy and professional relationship with your real estate agent so that not only you respect them but they respect you. We want to listen to you at all times and understand that you were the only one that knows best for you. If we start thinking we know what’s best for you without giving you all the information, were only doing you and ourselves a disservice.

You want an agent is easy to communicate and will enhance your experience. If your agent is only available one day a week you may lose out on a great house. You want to feel comfortable to regularly speak with your agent to build a personal relationship and make sure you’re both on the same page. With an agent that’s too busy or just doesn’t have the flexibility such as another part-time job, your needs get put by the wayside.
Being a real estate agent is not just about facilitating the transaction but understanding the nuances of the negotiation. A great agent will go to bat for you talking about the needs of the house, how to get the most profit, and how to really work for the client rather than just get the deal done.

To be honest, no pun intended, the main difference between a good agent and a great one is their ability to be honest with you. Yes, you know what’s best but if there are things that we need to share with you about the integrity or structural concern of the house or is there something that you just don’t know about, we want to be honest with you and tell you our opinion. You have the ultimate decision on the offer to accept or the home to buy but we want to be as honest and transparent with you as possible to help you make the best decision for you, your budget, and your family.
