Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
Laura was a joy to work to work with. She was personable, knowledgeable and available. As this was the first home we were purchasing in Florida and on the beach, she educated on the area and what to be aware of relative to construction and neighborhoods. Laura thought out-of-the-box during negotiations which helped us to obtain the home we were searching for. I would highly recommend her as an agent. I do not believe you could find an agent who knows more about the area than she does.user6889460
