10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR

10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR®

Homeowners should interview a few potential REALTORS® before deciding on one to sell their home. Here are some smart questions to ask:

1.  How long have you been in the business?
A freshly-licensed REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up-to-date training; those in the business longer bring more practical experience to the table.

2.  What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?
A competent listing REALTOR® should hold a track record for negotiating sales prices that are very close to list prices.

3.  How will your marketing plan meet my needs?
Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often do you advertise? Will you show me a sample flyer? How do you market online?

4.  Will you provide references?
Ask if any of the references are related to the REALTOR®. Ask if you can call their references with additional questions.

5.  What separates you from your competition?
Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, professional, reliable, and able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances.

6.  May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?
A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, the listing agreement and seller disclosure.

7.  How will you help me find other professionals?
Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated”. It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors.

8.  How much do you charge?
You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. It may be a good idea to ask what their commission fee is for your reference.

9.  What kind of guarantee do you offer?
If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement?

10.  What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?
Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know--always.

TESTIMONTIALS
 
As a first-time buyer, I really appreciated [Brian’s] expertise, patience and advice. Since then, Brian recently worked with my husband and I to sell two of our properties. He went above and beyond what we expected an agent to do… I highly recommend him if you're considering buying or selling your home. - Sandra B
 
Brian is a wonderful real estate agent and human being who exceeded our expectations. We needed to sell our home ASAP and he got the ball rolling the moment we hired him. We have used other real estate agents before but now we have found our go-to guy. We will definitely refer our friends and family to him without hesitation! - Sarah P
 
Brian helped me buy my very first property. If you knew me, you'd realize how big of a deal that is. As an anxious person, the Toronto real estate game almost put me over the edge. Brian played it masterfully. He patiently guided me through every step of the process with an exceptional attitude and the kind of confidence that relieves all stress and makes home-buying exactly what it should be: exciting and fun. From answering my constant stream of panicked email questions around the clock, to driving all the way across town at midnight to help me put in an offer, Brian was always 'on' and ready to go. His expertise and professionalism helped settle every last one of my concerns, and he regularly went far beyond what's expected of him as a realtor - right down to loaning me supplies to help me move! I've barely unpacked and am already looking forward to my next property so that I can work with him again. - Kareem
