What You Should be Asking Your Prospective Agent Today we want to share with you 10 questions that real estate agents hate to be asked. These are great question to ask agents before hiring them, because it forces them to be honest and their answers will determine how good of an agent they are. We will cover the first 5 this week, they are: 1. Are you a full time agent?  This is a very important question to ask. You want to make sure the agent has the experience to handle all the issues in your real estate transaction.  2. Do you have a team to support you?  This is also very important, especially if you are buyer. If the right home comes up and there is no one else to help you besides your primary agent, you could miss out on the best homes in our market, which are typically selling within 24-48 hours. We have 13 buyer representatives that are always available to assist you with getting into homes and helping make offers. Real estate is not a one man job anymore.  3. Are the members of your team specifically trained for certain tasks?  It's important that each member of the team has a specific, defined role. A closing coordinator may not be the best negotiators. A good negotiators is not necessarily the best at marketing. Each person should know their job and be trained well to help close a transaction quickly and smoothly.  4. What level of communication can I expect?  This is of the utmost importance. For our sellers, we communicate with them a minimum of twice a week. For buyers, we will keep in touch at all times to let you know about new listings that match your criteria for a home. We cater to your communication needs and can communicate with you however you would like.  5. How do you rank in your firm, locally and nationally?  This is a great question to ask to gauge experience. If you work with an agent in the bottom 20%, they don't always have the pedigree to get your home sold or bought correctly. Our team is #2 in Michigan and #12 nationally. Thanks for checking out our first set of questions. We will be back in a few weeks with the final 5 questions, so stay tuned! If you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We'd be glad to help!
