Questions to ask a broker

Do you know the questions to ask your Realtor- before you hire them?

Buying and selling your home can be complicated. Countless details that need to be executed, before, during and after the sale finalizes.

Buying or selling a home is a substantial investment, which is why you need to work with a realtor you can trust and who specializes in your market.

The following is a list of questions you should ask before you commit your business to a realtor. Let us answer these questions before you make your decision!

What’s the difference between an Agent and a Realtor? Agency is explicit. How can you be sure your Broker is representing you and not themselves?

How long have they been a Broker- again experience is everything!  From the designations, they hold to if they own their own home!  Yes, this might sound silly- but you’d be shocked at how many agents don’t. Clearly if not- why not! Do they own rental properties? Have they worked with developers or built themselves? Have they have earned an accredited Real Estate title’s- are they learning and improving their skillset? If not- why not!

What systems are in place to provide YOU the best possible outcome? Do they offer a guarantee?  Will you be dealing directly with a principal or passed on to a support person or team member? How well do they know the market? Having a thorough understanding of the local market is an absolute necessity when hiring a realtor.

Is it a good time to buy or sell?  Knowing or anticipating the market is critical to your bottom line. Even if it means postponing or turning away a transaction. At King County Agents we are in it for the long-term relationship and your highest possible outcome.
