5 Questions You Should Ask A Real Estate Agent

by Lisa M Garcia 04/07/2019

Buying a townhome or selling a property is a delicate process you should undertake with the utmost care possible. Selling a house you have lived for many years is a hard thing to do. So is trying to buy a property about which you are not sure. You don't know what went wrong with the former owners or why the property is listed. Therefore, you should be careful to find professional help.

If home buying or selling is possible, you require a knowledgeable real estate agent. You should be sure the agent is one that can help you. To ensure you get the best out of the agent representing you, there a few questions you should ask. Their response will let you know what to do.

  • Can I contact your most recent clients? When you ask real estate agents to let you speak with past clients, they know you want to test their credibility. If they grumble or reluctantly give you the contacts, they might not be the best people to represent you. Even if they give you the contacts willingly, go ahead and reach out to the clients, relate with them and find out how the agent treated them. You can be sure they will let you know what to avoid in dealing with the client. 
  • How long have they been a professional real estate agent? Another thing you should find is how long your agent has been helping people sell or buy property. Their answer to the question will let you know if they have the experience to help you or not. However, note that even the most experienced real estate agents were once inexperienced.
  • How long will it take to find my home or sell my property? Ensure you get a definite answer or at least a reasonable time frame from the agent. That way you will know if the agent is worth your time or you should look for another agent to help you.
  • Transparency is a virtue, ensure your agent has it.
  • Can you see other listings they have? You should also learn if the agent has other listings so you can see how they market homes and how long they take to sell. Always go with a real estate professional for best results.

This longevity and confidence comes from my expertise in the industry, knowlege to find exactly what my clients are looking for, effective communication and a team of professionals to get the job done. More importantly, the  recommendations my clients give to others result in repeated referral business that keeps me productive and successful.

Residential Single Family – My residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and I do it with professionalism and a total dedication to my clients. This property type is the majority of my market transactions, but by far not the only one in which I have expertise.

Condominiums – While condominiums are residential, they’re a very different market focus, and I am an expert in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for this property type.

Multi–family – Investors are great clients for me. Multi–family properties are a very unique market. The detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental are second nature to me.

Contact me for your commercial property needs in the Arvada, Broomfield, Denver, Federal Heights, Golden, Thornton, Wheat Ridge, Westminster, Northglenn, and Commerce City real estate markets.

Vacant Land – Land is a very special property class. It’s relatively easy to show a gourmet cook a wonderful commercial kitchen in a home and see their eyes light up. It’s more of a challenge to help a buyer or seller to realize the potential in a piece of land. I'm the best at it in the Arvada, Broomfield, Denver, Federal Heights, Golden, Thornton, Wheat Ridge, Westminster, Northglenn, and Commerce City real estate markets.
