Why interview real estate agents
“I JUST WISH MORE CONSUMERS KNEW HOW DIFFERENT AGENTS ARE” - TOP-PRODUCING RE/MAX AGENT
Simply put, there are two million licensed real estate agents in the US - and not all are equally good. Interviewing is proven across all industries to help make better hiring decisions. Your home is a precious asset, why would you not want to carefully vet which agent will be representing it?
Interviewing multiple agents at the same time makes them compete for your business. When you talk to just one or two agents separately, each may leave a good impression. However, when you have multiple agents interviewing for your business at the same time, it’s much easier to see which agent is a better fit for you. For example, you may see which agent did more research into your property. This would manifest itself in a more specific marketing plan for your home, as well as more preparedness in answering your questions.
Understand that an agent’s main motivation is for you to sign a contract with them. After you sign, it’s quite difficult to cancel working with an agent. Therefore, you must do everything you can to prevent future issues by vetting the agents upfront. Will this agent really work hard to represent my interests? After all, it’s not their own home they’re selling.
