Selecting The Right Real Estate Agent

"I like to consider myself the right Agent for everyone based on my knowledge and experience of the Real Estate market, my honesty and true caring for the people I represent."


When the time comes to sell your home, the first task for most home owners is to select a real estate agent to handle the process. Finding the right agent to sell your house isn't easy, but it can be done. Just make sure to do your homework on the individual, and not just assume that because they work for a big-name company they're a high-caliber agent. You may find exactly what you need at a company you've never heard of. 


So how do you find a high-caliber agent? Let's start by defining what makes the agent high-caliber. Is it time in the industry? No, you can have really bad agents who have been in the business for a very long time. Is it the volume of homes they sell? Maybe. Most agents will tell you that they are in the Million Dollar Club. What does that mean? It means that the agent has sold over $1 million in home value. Was that ten $100,000 homes  or just one $1,000,000 dollar home? Simply being a member of a club does not make an agent good.


The definition of a high-caliber agent is an agent who performs to expectations in the shortest amount of time. That is, an agent who sells your house, closest to list price, in the shortest amount of time. I am a results oriented driven team agent that works diligently and  produces the results my clients have come to expect, whether selling or purchasing a home. I have been in the top 1% in sales nationally for 20 consecutive years.

It has been proven that  homes sell faster and for more money with a realtor. Many people make the mistake of trying to sell their own home without help, believing the sales process to be simple and less expensive than listing with a realtor. However, in most cases, the visibility and resources a good realtor provides helps a home sell much faster than an For Sale By Owner home, cutting down on the market time and therefore being less expensive in the long run to the seller. Call Dan today and let me make your first home purchase a memorable one.
