As you choose a representative that will inevitably be a go-between for you and property sellers, you’ll want to ensure that your agent is articulate and has superior communication skills. Pay attention to properly implemented terminology in conversations.

You want your agent to have reliable experience. Do your research and ask questions. Reputable companies are upfront and honest about the levels of experience they demand from the staff they employ.

Your agent’s communication skills, level of experience, market knowledge, and reputation will all contribute to how comfortable you feel with your agent.
