Having the right REALTOR® by your side when buying or selling a home is critical.

Not a super stressed out one that leaves you with anxiety and too many unknowns. WE have a team of Top Realtors ready to serve you today!!!

A few questions to consider:
Do you work full time or part time? How long have you been selling homes in this area? Are you familiar with the areas I"m considering? What type of homes do you usually handle? What percentage of your business comes from referrals and repeat clients? How many sales have you closed? How many homes did you sell last year? What percentage of your listings sold during the listing period? How close to the asking price do your homes sell? On average, how many days do homes stay on the market? Will you guide us as we prepare the house to be shown? Will we receive a copy of the marketing plan? How will you advertise our home? In what publications and when will ads run? Will you employ an Internet marketing program? When do you plan to hold open houses? How will you advertise an open house? Do you plan to do anything else to get the word out? How often can we expect to be updated, even if there"s nothing to report?
What is your online presence?
Do you specialize in a particular area of Edmonton?
Did your last Realtor do a one on one consultation to go over everything the buying process involves?
This is just a guide to help prepare people who have not interviewed a REALTOR® in the past. The level of service unfortunately varies from agent to agent and it is best practice to interview an agent with experience and also get to you the person who will be advising you on all of your real estate transactions going forward.
