If you’re buying or selling a home in Aspen or any of the surrounding communities, you’re going to need to interview some Realtors®.
But asking, “Have you ever done this before?” isn’t going to be quite enough.
3 Things You MUST Ask When You Hire a Realtor
If you know what to ask, you can find the right Realtor for your needs.
How Long Have You Been a Realtor?
New agents can start with tremendous enthusiasm and skill. In fact, some relatively new Realtors are among the best in their fields.
However, when you’re purchasing a home, it’s about more than that. It’s about hiring a Realtor who can anticipate your needs, make sure she’s looking out for your best interests every step of the way, and who has extensive experience in your market. This can be particularly true in luxury real estate.
Experienced agents understand the city’s highs and lows, how much properties are really worth, and how to find out what’s most important to you as a buyer or seller.
Can You Provide References?
A great agent will have testimonials… and she won’t be afraid to share them.
A background littered with happy clients who’ve turned into friends is the hallmark of a Realtor you want by your side when you purchase or sell a home in Aspen.
What Makes You Different From Your Competitors?
No two Realtors are alike. In fact, there should be a solid number of characteristics that your Realtor is willing to share to differentiate herself from the competition.
This answer can tell you just about everything you need to know about an agent… and it can help you make the right choice.
