Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
This is the second time I have used John & Lisa Lowe as my realtors. They helped me buy my home in Tampa a few years ago and I recently decided to take a job in Sarasota. I needed to sell my home quickly in order to relocate and get my kids settled into their new schools. John and Lisa got my home staged & professionally photographed right away and they showed me how their marketing would bring me an offer quickly. Bottom line, my home was only on the market for 7 days and they made everything very easy all the way up to the closing. After having used John Lowe Group twice I can say they consistently give a 5 star experience.Jessica Simone, Sarasota, FL
