What To Look For In An Agent

The following are a few factors to keep in mind when choosing a listing agent:

1. Education. An important factor in choosing a real estate agent is their education in the real estate industry. Our professionals have advanced training and education, allowing them to be among the top agents and earning prestigious designations and certifications in the various fields of real estate.

Tip: On and near Long Beach Island, as a resort and recreational location, if your agent holds the certification RSPS [Resort and Second-home Property Specialist] you know you’re in the very capable hands of a professional who understands the ins and outs of selling properties for investment, development, retirement and second homes in our beautiful vacation destination.

2. Experience and Expertise. You want a full-time agent who is familiar with your area and with the type of property you intend to sell. Does he or she employ a diverse range of marketing and advertising strategies? How tech-savvy is your agent? How many similar properties has he or she been able to sell in the past?

Tip: Use an agent who lives full-time on the island, preferably with a long history here as well.  Long time residents know the beaches, the people and the businesses and can offer insights to the neighborhoods, activities, organizations and resources of Long Beach Island.

3. Availability and Commitment. Your agent should be capable of prompt and decisive action during the course of selling your property. Does your agent make it a point to keep in touch with you regularly? Can your agent easily be contacted in case of emergencies or even for the simplest questions? Is your agent available on the weekends and in the evenings when most buyers are out looking?

Tip: You want an agent who is hardworking and committed to providing timely service and communications.  An agent with a support team can be even better.  

4. Rapport. Does your agent take the time to listen to your goals and clarify your needs? Can your agent understand your unique situation and be genuinely concerned about the outcome of the process? 

Tip: Your listing agent will be your guide and partner in this crucial decision, so it is important to find one with whom you can get along.
