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.
My husband and I just relocated to the Memphis area from Knoxville, TN. We came to town for one weekend to look at houses. In that weekend, Melissa made sure we were able to look at as much as possible and we made the decision that weekend to make an offer on a home. Melissa made all of this possible in just a couple of days and we would not have been able to get the home that we wanted without her. She helped us to make the right decisions throughout the entire home buying process and was always available for advice. Melissa made doing all of this from across the state as easy as possible! She was always honest, helpful and professional and we would not have gotten the perfect home for us without her!gbx679
