Interviewing Agents

Here are a list of questions you can, and should, ask agents you are considering for the job:

Are you a full-time or part-time agent?

Are you a Realtor?

How many closings have you had?

Seller: What is the average time on market of your listings?

Seller: Do you use a professional photographer?

Buyer: What is the average number of houses you show each buyer until they have purchased?

Buyer: Do you preview homes in person for clients?

How many sellers and buyers are you currently representing?

What is your policy on responding to phone calls/emails/text messages?

How much of your business is generated by referrals?

What references can you provide?

Do you offer an "easy exit" so that I can end our agreement if I am not satisfied?
