Wondering how to pick an agent? Perhaps you have a relative who is in real estate, or a friend you've known for years. This person may seem the natural choice for you and you may actually feel a bit obligated to give them your business. Ultimately, though, you must live with your choices and decisions, as in everything else in life. You might make a list of the goals you have for selling your house and more thoughtfully base your decision on the person you finally conclude can best help you to reach those goals. You may want to interview several agents and brokers in the process, and you might want to let all those you interview know what you are looking for as well as how you will be going about your selection. There is really nothing to keep you from making as informed a decision as possible. Remember that you perhaps will live with the consequences of your decision for years to come. You want to make the right decision. Tell those you do not select why you have decided on another agent, whether for personal or professional reasons. Tell the person you select what made you select them. Being "upfront" about your goals, your reasoning and your decision treats everyone in a professional manner. Everyone wins in that case.

Give us a call if we can help. We're here to work for you. Have a great day!
