6 Qualities You Need in Your Broker

Here are 6 qualities you should look for when choosing someone to help you buy or sell your home!

1. Constant Communication

Your broker needs to be available, efficient, and a clear communicator. If you’re working with someone who doesn’t answer emails quickly, takes days to return phone calls, and leaves you with more questions than you had to begin with – quickly move on. Find someone who is committed to timely communication.

2. Values Your Relationship

Find a broker who you can trust. A great broker will value your relationship over making the sale or closing the deal. Be sure you’re on the same page about what you’re looking for. If you ever feel pressured to move outside your price range or preferences, it may be time to choose a new broker.

3. Knows the Area

Whether you are buying or selling a home, it is essential that your broker knows the area well. Choose a broker who has experience working in the area, and understands the local real estate market, along with other factors that can influence housing choices (local legislation, zoning laws, crime rates, etc.).

4. Good Reputation

Find them on LinkedIn, Google, or anywhere else that they may be listed. Read reviews if they are available. Ask around in community forums to get a feel for your broker’s reputation. If more than 1 in 5 people have complained – run!

5. Great At Staging 

This is especially important if you are looking to sell your home. Look for a broker who can take your space and make it look great. Professional organizations handle staging, but your broker should know how to handle some minor interior decorating.

6. Uses Technology

If you’re selling, your broker should know how to use 3D visuzations, videos, and online listings with ease. If you’re buying – choose a broker who can easily read through a listing to tell you what to be wary about.
