TOP QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR POTENTIAL REAL ESTATE AGENT

ask questions

The first steps in your house-hunting journey are finding a lender, getting prequalified for a loan and determining your budget. If you’ve done that and know how much you can spend, you’re ready to begin your search for a real estate agent who will represent your interests and help you become a homeowner.

Some buyers choose an agent before finding a lender — either way, it’s important to line up a team of professionals as soon as you’re ready to buy a home.

Once you’ve identified a few potential agents, you should interview them over the phone and then meet one or two in person.

What To Ask Your Potential Real Estate Agent

[1] How long have you been in business?

[2] How many transactions did you have last year?

[3] Are you experienced working with first-time home buyers?

[4] Can you explain the buying process?

[5] Can you tell me about the state, local and federal programs for first-time home buyers?

[6] What neighborhoods do you specialize in?

[7] What price range do you usually work in?

[8] Can you provide me with a list of references?

[9] What is the fastest way for me to reach you if I have a question or think I have found a home to buy?

[10] How often should I expect to hear from you while I am looking for a home?

[11] Will you be able to give me advice about future home maintenance or improvement projects that could help my house retain its value?

You’ll be spending a lot of time with your agent and trusting that he or she will represent your interests, so it’s important to take your time to find the right person.

I've been in the mortgage and insurance business for over 27 years. In 1992, started a full service insurance agency with Personal Auto, Home, and Commercial insurance. I quickly incorporated the mortgage business into the agency to offer with insurance products. In 1997 took over the families construction business and took over the construction of several projects and quickly became very involved in the new home construction & remodeling business. At this point, we started offering mortgages along with our construction services. We were able to offer a complete package of services to our clients. In 1998, we decided that we were seeing too many families that were trying to buy a home, but couldn't qualify because of credit issues. After multiple failures with credit repair companies, both local and national, we decided to learn the credit repair business. We spent the next few years learning and experimenting with fixing credit for ourselves, friends, and family. After about a year of learning, we began offering our credit repair services for free to our credit challenged clients. We quickly learned that credit can be fixed and improved for these families, and incorporated our Credit Repair & Improvement Services. In 2003, I obtained my real estate license in order to help our mortgage clients looking to buy a home. We had been helping families get prepared and approved for a home loan, so it was only logical to offer them the remaining services as a real estate agent to find the home. This helped our retention and referral rates for many years. The clients liked the fact that I could answer all of their questions with every part of the process, but actually help and handle the entire process.
