How to Find An Observatory Park Real Estate Agent

May 3, 2017

There are probably dozens of real estate agents in your area, so if you’re trying to buy or sell a home, how do you know which one you should work with? To find the ideal Observatory Park real estate agent, follow these tips:

Look locally.

You will need a real estate agent who is familiar with the area. Someone who calls himself a Denver real estate agent may not know the Observatory Park area, even though it’s within Denver. Look online for an agent that specializes in Observatory Park instead of one who has never worked with a client in Observatory Park before.

Find out their schedule.

Some real estate agents only work part-time or work in real estate on the side. If you want an agent who is fully committed to helping you buy or sell a home, make sure you choose an agent who works in real estate full-time. You should also ask each agent you talk to about his current workload. How many buyers is he representing? How many homes is he currently trying to sell? The answers to these questions will help you determine how much time the agent will have to devote to you. Learn how to interview a real estate agent.

Talk about strategy.

Find out what sets each real estate agent apart from the rest. If you’re selling your home, ask each agent how he will market the home to the community. Will he host open houses? How will he market the home online? Ask if you can see examples of how he’s marketed homes in the past. For example, if he has created informational brochures about a home to hand out at open houses, ask for a sample so you can look at the quality of his work. If you’re buying a home, talk to the agent about how often he will look for new homes, how many times he will take you to see listings, and whether he has relationships with other agents in the neighborhood.

Ask for references.

Once you have narrowed your list down to a few finalists, ask each of the agents to provide you with references. Contact the references to discuss their experience working with the agent. Was it difficult to get in touch with him? How are his negotiation skills? Did he conduct himself in a professional manner? No one can answer these questions better than people who have worked with the agent in the past, so get as much information as possible.

Read reviews.

Of course, you can always head online if you want to see what people are saying about a certain agent but don’t want to ask for references. Simply type in the real estate agent’s name and look on websites such as Yelp, Facebook, and LinkedIn to see what clients have to say.
