The best place to start your real estate agent search is by speaking with friends, family, and colleagues who have recently bought or sold a home for referrals. The majority of top agents receive new clients through word of mouth, which is why it’s so critical for them to provide top-tier service.
However, word of mouth has its limitations. Your friend may have received good service, but not stellar service. Or your needs may be more specific than those of your social group. Even if you receive a referral, be sure to research the agent and shop around for other options who specialize in your buying and selling needs on the internet. The internet is your best resource for finding quality real estate agents.
