How to find a “good” real estate agent? There are many things to consider when working with an agent. But one of the most important things to note is to make sure you work with a licensed Realtor or a real estate agent. When you find a couple of agents that you like in your particular area, look them up, their listings, affiliations, business pages. It will help you narrow down which agent you think would be a good fit based on your home buying/selling needs. Real estate agents don’t just help you buy or sell your property. They act as your intermediary throughout the whole thing. Find someone you can trust and who will listen to your concerns and questions.
