What to Look for When Choosing an El Paso Listing Agent

el paso listing agent meeting with a couple When it comes to finding the best El Paso listing agent to sell your home, you need to keep a few things in mind. This way, you can make sure you team up with the best agent possible. In order to achieve the best results, you will need to do some investigating online. Once you have the answers to a few questions, you can go ahead and call to get some follow-up information. First, ask around. Find out who friends, neighbors, colleagues, and relatives used as their El Paso Listing Agent. Then take their names and go on the web to each agent’s website. Once you get there, here are some things for which to look. 

Check Out Their Licenses and Specialties

Be sure the agent you choose is licensed in Texas and that there are no pending disciplinary actions against him or her. Bonus points if you find some awards that he or she has won. Many times an agent will choose a specific type of real estate to specialize in. For example, some only do senior housing or homes within a community with a homeowners association. If your home does not fit into the category, they represent, cross them off your list.

Find Out How Long They’ve Been In Business, Their Reviews and Current Listings 

The longer an El Paso Listing Agent has been in business, the more experience he or she will have. While the agent who’s near retirement may not be the best choice, neither is the girl who just started on her real estate journey. Whether it’s on the agent’s website or not, there should be some place on the web where you can find out how previous clients feel about their experience. Also, look into whether or not poor performance was addressed and if it was, how it was handled. In addition, look to see how and where the agent lists the homes they are representing. The pictures should look professional and the properties should be listed on at least one searchable site such as realtor.com or zillow.com

Choose The Best El Paso Listing Agent

Once you have this information, sit down with the agents on your short list and ask them how long their listings are typically on the market and what they do, beyond the internet to promote their properties. He or she should already have a market report for your home and be able to tell you how much other homes in your neighborhood are going for. This will help you to figure out how much you will get for your home. Of course, you also have to ask about fees, as the vary with the market. One El Paso Listing Agent that should be on your short list is Brian Burds. He has all the qualifications to get the price you want in a reasonable amount of time. Contact the Brian Burds Home Selling Team today.
