Today we're going to look at how to hire a real estate agent for the job of selling your home.

There are four main criteria to focus on:

How many homes has the agent sold so far this year? - This is a specific question that is geared towards productivity. Anyone can tell you that they're great. The question is can they demonstrate this to you in their track record?

How many homes does the agent currently have listed for sale? - The agents who have the most inventory almost invariably are the ones who are working with the most buyers. This greatly increases the probability that the agent is going to be able to find a buyer for your home.

How many homes does the agent have pending (under contract waiting to close)? - This is another important question about productivity. You want an agent who is actually selling homes for people just like you in your neighborhood and the surrounding ones.

Go online and do your homework! - Check out the agent's business Facebook page and reviews on Zillow.com to see the level of service and results being delivered to clients just like you.

Following these simple tips and pointers will help you get the results you want in the timeframe you want which, in the end, is what your choice of agent is all about.

We'd be delighted to provide you with further assistance and advice about choosing the right agent, so please don't hesitate to contact us today.

Kind regards
