With so many real estate agents and REALTORS® to choose from, what should I look for in a REALTOR®? First and foremost, Linda would recommend being sure that the agent you choose is a REALTOR®, meaning a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. Members of this association are held to a higher standard than real estate agents or licensees.
In addition to being a REALTOR®, an agent should:
- Be a full-time agent
- Belong to a MLS (Multiple Listing Service) or online home search
- Know how to help you accomplish your goals
- Represent YOU whether you are buying or selling
- Stay up to date with the real estate market, education, and technology
