Questions to Ask a Prospective REALTOR

Blog by Lynn Chamberlain | June 10th, 2011

When choosing a REALTOR® to help sell your home, there are dozens of questions you can ask. But, perhaps, the most important questions to ask him/her are these: 

•            What do your past clients say about your services?

•            Do you build your business on repeat business and referrals?

•            Do you have experience selling our type of home in this type of neighborhood?

•            Are you easy to reach? Can we get a hold of you by phone or email? How quickly do you return calls?

•            How will you promote our listing?

•            What do you do to make sure the home selling process goes smoothly for us?

•            What happens after you sell our home? Will you stay in touch?

Ideally, you want to determine if he or she is a “referral worthy” REALTOR®. That’s the kind of professional you want to work with.
