What is exceptional service? What are you looking for? Make certain you are clear on what you want out of your Broker or Sales agent before you sign an agreement with them. Know what their resources are: Do they know you and what you need/want? Do they know your neighborhood or region? Do they have access to the MLS (multiple listing service) and give you as much information as you need and/or want to know? Do they talk more about themselves than they listen to you? Communication is often challenging, and sometimes confusing, so make sure you hire someone who is a good listener. Once you hire an agent, be sure to, as a friend said, "check assumptions." If you find yourself assuming something will be done, make sure your assumption is correct. Check and double-check your assumptions. That's a smart move in all communication, but it is particularly important in real estate transactions.
