Here are few more ideas to help determine the right Calgary Realtor for you.
Calgary is a city of networkers, so use your network. Ask friends, relatives, business contacts, or work colleagues for recommendations and ask why they would refer that agent. What difference did they make to the process of your home sale or purchase? Would they use them again? Does the agent bring some additional experience over and above other agents?
Don’t Choose the First Realtor You Meet: Compare
Compare realtors based not just on their knowledge, experience and qualifications. Understand if the type of property you are buying or selling fits their real estate portfolio. Are they specialists in Condos, Luxury Homes or specialists in a certain community or communities.
Look for an agent who deals with houses in your specific price range or property type. This would make sure that he would put his best efforts in the job. Some agents only deal with the high-end properties. They give priority to the customers looking for bigger properties, and if you are hunting for a small home, it may not be really good idea to go for such agents.
Check on their Personality
Interview the prospective agent to determine the level of customer care. Are they willing to go the extra mile? Are they available?
Go for Flexible Realtors
Depending on your schedule, daytime and weekday viewings for buying or selling a home may not work. A good realtor understands that they need to be flexible to meet the needs of a buyer or seller, so find a realtor who does not mind doing business on weekends or after hours; and will answer the phone during those times as well.
Good Communication plays a pivotal role when dealing with real estate transaction. Does the realtor take time to understand your requirements and clarify? Do they provide good and relative information to assist in the home buying or selling process? Can they translate that to sales materials.
Choosing a realtor you are compatible and comfortable with, helps you communicate your concerns with them more easily.
Excellent Negotiation Skills Are Important
This is a quality that can make a big difference to a real estate deal. If you buying, good negotiating from an agent with the right skills can help to get a house at a lower cost. For the sellers, selecting the right potential buyer, especially if there are multiple buyers, can also make a big difference.
