What To Look For In An Agent The following are a few key factors to keep in mind when looking for a listing agent:

    1. Education. The most important factor in choosing a real estate professional is their education in the real estate industry; and then again in the local Austin area as it pertains to homes. Our professionals have advanced training and education, allowing them to be among the top agents in the world and earning prestigious designations in the various fields of real estate.

    2. Experience and Expertise. You want a full-time agent who is familiar with your area and with the type of property you intend to sell. Are they adept in home sales and able to connect their clients with loan specialists who commonly do home deals? Does he or she employ a diverse range of marketing and advertising strategies that appeal to those looking to purchase a home as a living space, second home or investment? How tech-savvy is your agent? How many similar homes has he or she sold in the past??

    3. Availability and Commitment. Your agent should be capable of prompt and decisive action during the course of selling your home. Does your agent make it a point to keep in touch with you constantly? Can your agent easily be contacted in case of emergencies or even for the simplest questions? Is your agent available on the weekends or in the evenings when most buyers are out looking?

    4. Rapport. Does your agent take the time to listen to your goals and clarify your needs? Can your agent understand your unique situation and be genuinely concerned about the outcome of the process? Your listing agent will be your guide and partner in this crucial decision, so it is important to find one with whom you can get along.

What Is Your Property Worth? Without a professional agent, most independent property sellers tend to overestimate the value of their home or home. You can avoid this pitfall by consulting with an experienced real estate listing agent familiar with the purchasing and sales of houses in the Austin area.
