Characteristics of a Good Listing Agent
Here are some of the characteristics sellers say they want in agent:

  • Experience. Let new agents learn the business on somebody else's dime.
  • Education. Ask about degrees and certifications.
  • Honesty. Trust your intuition. Your agent should speak from the heart.
  • Networking. This is a people business. Some homes sell because agents have contacted other agents.
  • Negotiation skills. You want an aggressive negotiator, not somebody out to make a quick sale at your expense.
  • Good communicator. Sellers say communication and availability are key.

Finally, ask for a personal guarantee. If the agent won't guarantee performance and release you from a listing upon request, don't hire that agent.
