As A Buyer:

If you're a buyer, you want someone who knows the market inside and out; someone who can help you find the right house. Whether you create your list of candidates through referrals or online searches you must make sure that you can develop a trusting relationship.  If not, get out!

Here are a few questions to ask:

2. How familiar are you with the area where I want to live?

3. Do you work with a team of other agents?
4. Do you work part-time or full-time as an agent?
5. Do you have additional training or advanced real estate education?
6. What should I expect when working with you?
7. What kind of information will you provide me on the homes and neighborhoods I’ll be looking at?
8. Can you provide references from at least three buyers you’ve worked with in the past six months?
9. How will current market conditions affect my home sale?
10. What resources will you use to help me find the right home?
11. How will you communicate with me throughout the process?

7. How much should I expect to pay in commission?
8. What kind of communication and/or updates can I expect from you?
