Agents love to say all of them are different but basic research will prove most are the same. It’s the ‘cookie cutter’ approach with regards to selling your home – every property comes the same way.
What to look for whenever choosing an agent
In 2006 Neil Jenman (my Dad) was asked to provide a list of questions, comments, and hints to help home sellers choose a realtor for a TV show he was hosting. He called his set of questions and comments, GUIDE TO GRILLING AGENTS. Over the last few years I have given the guide to numerous home sellers. This report contains most of the questions and comments in his original guide.

Put your house buyer shoes on. And start with a mystery shop…
Department stores do it, why shouldn’t you? Utilize the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the indegent agents. Why bother interviewing a real estate agent who doesn’t bother to return buyer’s calls? Start with an email. Approximately half of all buyer enquiry arrives via email.
If you distribute 10 emails to 10 local real estate agents, I can almost guarantee that you will not receive 10 replies. If only 5 reply, then you have just saved yourself having to interview 5 agents. Include your phone number in your email. Do they call you back? Or do they just email a typical response? A realtor who follows up with a call has a much better potential for ‘closing a sale’ than a realtor who sends a typical reply.
