How to Find a Seller’s Real Estate Agent?

The most common way sellers (and buyers) find a real estate agent or Realtor is through referrals. You either ask family or friends if they’ve had a good experience with a particular agent. Or, sometimes friends and family find out you’re selling your home and refer agents to you. Either way, having someone you respect and trust vouch for an agent goes a long way in making a choice.

Another thing to look for is local knowledge and experience. Ask neighbors or people in your community about any agents they know. You can even drive around and look at for sale signs in your neighborhood. Does one agent have the majority of listings in the community? Seek out these “neighborhood specialists” and put them on your short list. Many times these agents actually live in the neighborhood themselves and have special insight into selling homes there.
