THINGS TO ASK BEFORE CHOOSING A REALTOR

1. HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?
Experience is what really matters in the real estate industry. In a special market like the Brainerd Lakes area, it’s important that your realtor has market knowledge and experience.

2. DO YOU HAVE REVIEWS & CONTACT INFORMATION FROM PAST CLIENTS?
Every realtor should be able to give you a snapshot of their client history with reviews or testimonials. Also, there should be no hesitation from a realtor to connect you with satisfied clients. Ask for names and phone numbers.

3. HOW MANY HOMES HAVE YOU SOLD? HOW MANY CLIENTS HAVE YOU HELPED?
You want someone who has worked with many scenarios in case anything out of the ordinary comes up during your selling process. Equally important, a realtor must have your best interest in mind and proven negotiating skills.

4. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO MARKET MY HOME?
Your realtor should have a very clear and detailed plan in place for selling your home. And this goes beyond posting it to the MLS. What kind of advertising does your realtor do to market a home? Does your realtor have a dedicated website with high traffic? What other steps does the realtor take to bring in buyers?
