What Makes a Great Real Estate Agent?

Are you preparing to sell your first home? Has your family outgrown the home you currently own? Have you decided it's time for a change of pace and a new neighbourhood?

No matter why you've decided to sell your home—and no matter what you're looking for in your next home—it's crucial that you choose the right real estate agent, one who will make sure you get a great house for the best deal possible.

So how do you know which real estate agent to trust? Here are some criteria you can use to assess a real estate agent before you decide you want to work together:

The agent has to be full time. You might be surprised to discover that many real estate agents actually work part time and have other jobs. Despite what you may think, that doesn't mean they're a really hard worker. It means they might not have time to pay attention to all the little details that are crucial to a smooth home purchase or sale.

At Shop A Property we go beyond full time. We're available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to answer your questions and help you find the perfect home—or the perfect buyer for your old one.

They have to be honest. You're trusting this person to help you find the perfect home and maybe even sell your old one. That's pretty much the same thing as putting your life in their hands. Ask some unusual questions and feel out your real estate agent's answer. A good real estate agent will always be honest.

Here at Shop A Property we're always happy to answer any questions you might have. Our goal is not just to help you purchase a home or sell your old one, it's to build a relationship with you so we can help you with all future real estate purchases in the GTA.

You should be able to confirm their track record. How can you tell whether or not somebody is capable of helping you find the perfect home or sell your old one? For one thing, they should be able to tell you about previous sales and discuss the properties in depth. For another, a great real estate agent should be able to provide customer references. Make sure you call these people to find out if they were really satisfied with the job their real estate agent is.

At Shop A Property we've worked with properties of all shapes and sizes. We've helped many different people find the perfect home for them. We've also helped many people sell their old homes so they can move into their new one without breaking the bank.

These criteria are a great place to start if you're trying to assess a potential real estate agent. So why don't you call Shop A Property today at 647-886-3462 and ask us any questions you might have about our work.
