As a Langley REALTOR®, I know that, when it comes to buying a Langley home, there is nothing more important than choosing the best REALTOR® for the job. That is why my team and I are dedicated to providing our clients with the best client care in the business. If you are thinking about purchasing a home in the Langley area, here are some simple tips on how to choose the best Langley REALTOR®to represent you and your interests.
1. Do Your Homework
Before choosing a Langley REALTOR® to help you purchase a new home, it is important to take the time to do thorough research. This can involve meeting with different real estate agents, getting recommendations from family and friends, and getting referrals from professionals in related fields. It is also important to make sure that your potential REALTOR® has good communication skills, as they will have to communicate with you and other agents throughout the entire process. Once you have a short list of your top choices, you can begin to further assess each one in order to determine if they live up to your standards.
2. Ask Lots of Questions
When assessing your short list of real estate agents, make sure that you ask a lot of questions. This will help you determine how experienced the REALTOR® is and if they are a good fit for you and your specific needs. Some of the questions to ask a prospective REALTOR® include:
- How many properties do they have listed?
- How many clients (buyers and sellers) are they currently working with?
- Is the agent experienced with properties that you are looking for in both style and price?
- Can they help you through the various aspects of making a home purchase?
- What is their asking price to selling price ratio for recent sales?
3. Review References
While agents who have closed a lot of deals will have the most experience, it is also important to make sure that they have clients who would strongly recommend them to other people. Ask each potential REALTOR® for a list of their references. Past clients are usually the best people to give you feedback, but you can also ask for references from other professionals in related fields.
