How to choose an agent
A top agent list is a great place to start your search for an agent. Once you’ve found a small group of three to five agents, you can start checking their background and scheduling interviews.
During the interview process, you should learn if the agent has experience in your neighborhood and particular situation. A great agent will also match your communication style, personality, and have a personal background that will help them understand yours.
Once you’ve found an agent that fits your criteria and will work on your timeline, it’s time to negotiate a commission. Once both you and your agent find a commission that works and agree on a time frame, it’s time to sign an agreement and get to work!
