When buying a home, a lot of people will call on a list they see advertised in a magazine or brochure. In both buying and selling, it is important to hire an agent who understands your needs and requirements. Make sure the real estate agent you interview is listening to your points of sale or purchase criteria.

If they are constantly offering counter points that deviate too far from your ideas, it might not be a good fit. With a capacity to listen, it is important to hire someone who is trustworthy.

This may be a bit more difficult to assess, especially when the relationship is new, but pay attention to how they present their arguments and ideas. If you are not sure where to look or begin, ask a friend for a referral.
