Whether you are looking for a home of your own or are interested in creating a long term working relationship with a Realtor for the purposes of property investment it is very important that you find a Realtor who will listen to your needs and wishes and act accordingly. The right Realtor for your needs can mean all the difference in the world between a successful and profitable transaction now as well as many more in the future (if you plan on investing in multiple properties). Below are some important things to notice when selecting a Realtor that will meet your needs.

1) Does the realtor you are considering listen to your needs? This is important as it will save you both a lot of time and money in the process of finding the perfect home for your family or for an investment property. If the realtor is constantly presenting properties that do not meet your budget or price requirements it might be a good idea to either lay down the law or find a realtor that is willing to expect your wishes and needs.

2) Does he or she ask questions and provide appropriate feedback? This indicates a direct interest in your needs, which is important-particularly when planning for a long-term investment relationship though some find it even more important when purchasing a home for their family home as this is a personal matter rather than a business matter. We all have a tendency to be more selective when placing the welfare of our family in the hands of another.

3) Do you feel comfortable dealing with the realtor you are considering? As mentioned above, we tend to be a little choosier when selecting professionals to help our families. Why would it be any less so when it comes to the Realtor that will help our families find a home? Rapport is a good word to describe the sort of relationship you need to develop with your Realtor. Do you have a good rapport with a potential realtor? If not, then move along. There are many realtors in most cities and there is absolutely no reason that you should deal with a realtor that doesn't make you feel comfortable and secure.

4) How well does the potential Realtor know the area in which you are seeking a home? There are many things that make a home a 'good buy' for residential and investment purposes. You want a Realtor that has his or her finger on the pulse of the city and the various areas of interest, growth, and decline, within the city. School districts matter more now than at any other time in our history in most cases, he or she should know about the schools, new business developments, and the value of property in the area (as well as the tendencies of property values to rise or fall over the last several years).

5) Does the potential Realtor have specific experience dealing with your specific real estate needs? Whether you are planning a residential transaction or if you are seeking investment property you will need a dedicated and experienced professional that can help you meet your goals.


No one should suffer with an agent that you do not feel is working for you or have your best interests at heart. If you invest a little bit of time and energy shopping around for the right Realtor to meet your needs, you will find that your real estate transactions will take much less time and effort. It's much better to make the decision based on a few careful interviews in the beginning than after looking at fifty or more homes that do not meet your needs or price range.
