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.
Steve Sexauer is passionate about real estate. We listed with Steve to sell property in St. Petersburg. As I live in Seattle, WA I needed a partner in this endeavor who would truly help me through the process long distance. Steve rose to the challenge. He literally was our feet on the street, he located and obtained quotes for work we needed on the property to prepare it for sale. Steve became our project manager when a new roof was installed. He provided frequent updates and with every offer we had a one on one call to discuss the offers and determine the next steps. I felt completely engaged and included in the process, right up to CLOSING in just over 2 months for a price over list! Steve is amazing and I'd highly recommend him for your real estate needs.patsinwa
