Let me start by saying: I am not Chick-Fil-A, I can’t make everyone happy (and there are still people who don’t like CFA)! My point being.. this post isn’t to say that I’m the right fit for you (necessarily), I just want to point out a few things that you should look for!

  1. You know that feeling when something just feels right? The shoe fits, the throw pillow matches the color scheme.. make sure the agent feels like the right fit. Trust your gut!

Do they make you feel pressured? Are they pulling out contracts to sign before they’ve even learned anything about you? Do they start the conversation with “I’m the best xyz”? You’ll know if it feels like the right fit!

  1. Look for someone with the heart of a teacher – Now more than ever (as in this market more than any market I’ve sold in), it is so, so important to be educated about the market, the process and what to be prepared for before you ever step foot into MLS 😉

Before you ever even schedule a zoom call with the agent, are they educating you on this platform? Are they explaining what they cover in that zoom call? What does working with them look like? How are they going to set you up for success?

  1. Social Media Savvy: Let me preface this by saying by no means am I suggesting that you need a real estate agent who has gone viral on TikTok. Not at all! But I believe social media is a critical tool for agents to be using. Not only does it allow them to network with agents all over the country (including having exposure to the city your home is located in), it also means they are on top of marketing trends that can maximize your home’s exposure!
  2. Are they a local agent? Do they have knowledge of the area (& market) your home is located in? Understanding the market for strategic pricing as well as being aware of local hot spots, amenities and attractions is essential to your home sale success!
