Sometimes I feel like the one-post product-pusher posts are the chat forum equivalent of graffitti.

Hope following tips will help you:

Talk with recent clients.
Look up the licensing.
Pick a winner.
Select an agent with the right credentials.
Research how long the agent has been in business.
Look at their current listings.
Ask about other houses for sale nearby.

I'm sure I am not understanding. Do you mean that I should talk with clients of the agents I am interviewing?

Why sure; any self-respecting Agent should be quite willing to give you a comprehensive list, with contact information, of all of the people that they are currently dealing with . . . . I do it all the time !

I'm confused with "Pick a winner". Subjective.

Longwalk - that 'confidentiality'? It's surprising what agents will tell you that IS confidential. Perhaps I take my license too seriously, eh?

And, I miss the French postings....

I didn't want to pile on in my initial post, but this one seemed like the goal of the whole exercise. Instead, it is the 3rd task step. I guess I have a lot to learn about finding good real estate agents. laugh

And, no, VABroker, I don't think you are over-thinking your fiduciary duties. It is what VT was pointing out in the back-up offer thread: how can I do one of these offers correctly without somebody failing in their duties to their client? That is an old problem with no resolution because of human nature.

You can talk with recent clients and also you can read the reviews of them. You can research about his experience in this business.

Really . . . . you might believe that; but who's going to supply that list; and how do you distinguish between Customers and Clients ?

And many so called "reviews", if they exist at all, are self-promotional scripts, written and supplied by the Agents themselves.

For all the talk about social media presence, I still find that the gross majority of people, including me, looks to personal referrals first.

The exceptions are that out-of-area people and those looking for out-of-the-ordinary goods and services often rely on Google or social media. Fifteen years ago, those were found by looking in the yellow pages.

My, but how times have changed.
