Selling or buying a home can be one of the largest transactions of your life. A trusted consultant and Realtor can be an invaluable partner to have. When you interview a Realtor to hire, here are three really good questions to ask them:

1. “How many homes have you sold in the last 12 months?” It’s interesting to find out how long an agent has been in the market, but noting their productivity in the last 12 months is a better indicator of whether or not they are a productive, full-time agent.

“You want to get a sense that this agent is somebody you can trust.”

2. “Can I have the contact info for your last three deals?” This question may be a surprise to the agent, but it could provide you with an honest, authentic answer to help you feel comfortable with them.

3. “What specific strategies are you going to use to get my home sold?” Some agents specialize in buyer sales. Some agents specialize in listing and selling. A specific, proven plan is essential for any buyer or seller.
