Find A Real Estate Agent

Finding the right real estate agent to help sell  your home can not only result in a faster sale with a higher net profit, but can help you ease the stress of selling and moving as well. It can be difficult to find the right agent if you don’t already have one in mind as there are so many options to chose from. Here are a few thing to keep in mind when you try to find a real estate agent to sell  your home.

There are two main ways people find real estate agents in St. Louis to sell their home. The first way is by word of mouth. This is the Midwest and Missouri is the “show me state” so we put a high value on personal recommendations. Ask your family, friends and co-workers if they have worked with a real estate agent they know, like a trust. After you have a few names, use the internet to research each one. See how many home’s they’ve sold and if they’ve been doing business in your area.

The other way people typically find an agent is simply by searching online. Make a list of what is most important to  you and use these criteria to research agents in your neighborhood. Are you looking for the top listing agent in your zip code? Or is communication style and marketing more important to you? It is your right as a seller to interview multiple agents to sell your home, meeting them in person can help you get a sense if this is something you want to work with. Home selling can be an emotional experience as well as a financial one so it is important to choose an agent that communicates well with you and that you can get along with.

“Well, there are definitely a couple of different ways. Number one, by referrals. Asking anybody that you are friends with who may have recently purchased or sold a home. You can definitely have a friend who could refer you. Maybe it is somebody within an organization or another type of community you are involved [like the chamber of commerce] or your church or a gym. Another way [to find an agent] is searching for real estate agents in a particular area online. If you were to look for a real estate agent in Kirkwood, MO then you would have an agent familiar and connected with the area and can lead you in the right direction, not only from purchasing a home but also selling your home, what home values are going for.” –Stephanie Dacey, Licensed Real Estate Agent
