Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
I’ve known Ed Geist for many years as a dedicated Real Estate pro. He is always available to answer questions, knows his craft and the local market, and the fact that he spent his early career as an Appraiser…gives him insight the average Real Estate person will not have. Go with Ed, you won’t, go wrong.DOUG G
