Selecting an Agent

Family working with a realtor.

Before you relocate to the Las Vegas area, a good idea is to find an agent who is a relocation specialist or a buyer’s agent.  As you can see by my web presence that I am a relocation specialist who specializes in helping people move to a new area.

Selecting the right real estate agent is important as you will be working closely with that professional on one of the most important financial transactions in your life – the purchase of your home.  Please ask me or any real estate agent these questions: Question 1: Is the real estate agent a certified Realtor®? Question 2: Does the Realtor have any additional training or designations? Does the agent’s business card and website information reflect this? Question 3: How long has the agent been in the business? Question 4: How well does the agent know the Las Vegas real estate market? Question 5: In how many transactions was the agent involved last year? Question 6: Does the agent work full time or part time? Question 7: Is the agent a good communicator and present him/herself professionally? Ask which tools the agent uses to communicate – by phone and e-mail? Question 8: Ask how accessible this person is during the work week and the weekend. Question 9: Does the agent know the community you may be interested in? Question 10: Is the Realtor® a buyer’s agent, a seller’s agent or does the Realtor® handle both? Question 11: Does he or she have recent client references?
