Picking a real estate agent is an important step. With so many real estate agents to choose from, how do you pick the right one? Here are five tips to make sure you pick an agent who will stand out from the crowd. 


1: Check Their Listings

    - Do their listings have good photos?

    - Do the descriptions make their listings sound appealing?


If an agent has done a good job with their listings, odds are they will put in the effort to make sure they do a good job when they work with you.


2: Check Their History

    - Do they have good reviews?

    - Have they won any awards?


Whether a single agent or a team, history can tell you a lot. An award-winning agent who has had success in the past will probably have success working with you in the future. 


3: Check Their Persistence

    - When you signed up on their website, how long did it take them to contact you?

    - How often did they follow up with you?


When an agent is selling your house or trying to find you a new home, you want to know they are putting in the effort and aren't going to drop the ball. The amount of persistence and follow up you see from an agent when you first reach out to them can tell you a lot about what to expect in the future. 


4: Interview Them

    - Do they seem knowledgeable?

    - Do you feel like they hear and understand your needs?


You want to find an agent who knows the business inside and out. You also want to make sure that you have an agent you can communicate with effectively. A good agent will want to do their best to meet all your real estate needs and will be able to listen and understand what you want. 


5: Will They Lower Their Commission?

    - Are they willing to fight for their own money?

    - Will they be willing to fight for yours?


This one may seem strange, but it is actually a good thing if an agent won't lower their commission. It means that they understand their own worth and are willing to fight for their money, which means they'll be willing to fight for your money as well. Remember, you get what you pay for and a good agent will earn that commission.
