Tips for Interviewing a Realtor

Whether you’re buying or selling a home, ask your REALTOR®:

Can you explain in detail the process from contract to closing?
Specifically describe how you will represent my interests above yours throughout the process?
What is the process you use to negotiate on my behalf?
What is your real estate background and experience? How will it help me?
Are you a REALTOR®?
Do you work in real estate full-time? How accessible are you? How can I reach you?
For which aspects of the home buying process are you available? If you are unavailable, will someone else be available to work in your place? (presenting offers, inspections, closings, etc.)
How will you assure that deadlines are meticulously met?
