Top Characteristics You Should Look for in a Real Estate Professional

The news is out: Real Estate Insider Magazine has listed the top traits that home buyers and sellers are looking for in a real estate agent. We think this list is spot on and asked our clients to help us rank it in the order of what they felt was most important when choosing a realtor. Here’s what they said:


First, trustworthiness is still the number one characteristic people look for in a real estate agent. Having an honest representative in the market looking for the best opportunities for your family is key to establishing a long lasting and successful partnership.


Second, our clients tell us tenacity and work ethic are crucial to getting the deal done. Having a polite yet aggressive realtor means they have the determination to close a deal coupled with savvy negotiation skills that will help you reach your goals. The best realtors work longer and harder than anyone else – and it shows in their home sale numbers.


Third, local market knowledge helps families understand the ins and outs of a community before buying, but also helps sellers understand what price will move their home quickly.


Forth, organizational skills with attention to detail go a long way toward closing a deal. These agents are always tops in the region at hitting the numbers; their sales figures prove that staying organized is key to this work.


Fifth, technology and social media savvy has become increasingly important. Understanding what social channels consumers are using helps buyers and sellers get the best bang for their buck. Staying up-to-date on the latest digital trends can make all the difference in today’s competitive market.
