Consider This When Choosing a Real Estate Professional in Calgary
The fact is, it does matter which real estate associate you purchase your home with. That’s a given. Every associate will tell you that you should select them based on their credentials and past track record.
You already know you want a real estate professional with the knowledge to best serve your interests, and you are looking for a supportable performance record for your review. But that only narrows the field marginally. How you narrow the candidates from there is tricky. Our community is filled with qualified real estate agents.
As you make your decision, you may want to consider the following:
While it’s important to have an agent with education and experience, recognizing the importance of choosing an associate who enjoys a strong reputation among their peers in the real estate community, is a key point in narrowing your choices.
Education allows an agent to know how to anticipate problems, avoid them or be able to handle them quickly in a professional manner, should they occur.
Experience polishes and promotes exceptional negotiating skills, which can convert a prospect into a buyer, or mean the difference between a contract that works, and a contract that dies.
Reputation makes it possible for your home to be shown more often to qualified buyers represented by other associates. If a real estate associate doesn’t enjoy working with your agent, their buyers may never see your home. Conversely, if you are a buyer and want to present an offer on a home which has multiple offers, the seller’s agent is more likely to encourage their client to consider an offer which comes from an agent they respect.
Education, Experience and Reputation, these three elements work together to promote a smoother purchase, the best price for you, in the least amount of time.
