REALTOR® is a trademark that identifies a licensed real estate agent as a member of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). All REALTORS® make a pledge to adhere to a strict code of ethics and standards of business practice. There are many reasons why a REALTOR® is essential when selling your home, but which REALTOR® is the best choice for you and your family? Remember, a top-performing REALTOR® will not only save you time and maximize the sale price of your home, but he/she will also negotiate in your best interest and ensure solid contracts, thus closing the deal and securing the sale of your home.
When you are looking to find the right REALTOR®, it makes sense to identify someone who is considered an expert in your neighbourhood. Every neighbourhood in Vancouver is different and this creates unique challenges for both the homeowner and the REALTOR®. Beyond the market and property knowledge, they can speak about the schools, community centers, and unique neighbourhood amenities that add value to your home. They will know the quickest routes to the airport, to downtown and where the best private schools are located. You can start by asking your friends or neighbours if they can recommend a particular realty team or individual. Be sure to make note of which REALTORS® are active in your neighbourhood.
The best way to find the right REALTOR® for you is to interview your top choices and ask lots of questions. And, let them ask questions of you too. A REALTOR® that works for you should understand your motivation to sell and your expectations for service. They should listen to you in order to understand your goals and what is most important. The more questions asked and answered, the better equipped you will be to work together towards the common goal, your goal. Ultimately you will choose a REALTOR® that you feel comfortable with AND has the right qualifications to get the job done for you. If you haven’t sold a home before, you may not know what to ask.
