The dream Realtor for you is not necessarily the one related to you, and probably isn’t a pushy individual. The most compatible licensed real estate adviser is not afraid to tell you the truth (even when you don’t want to hear it),  and is easy to get along with.

You are a unique individual with unique needs. Some property hunters have a large down-payment.Some purchasers want a big lawn. Some shoppers will only be happy with a move-in ready home. Just like buyers, Realtors have different patience and areas of focus.

Here’s what you should pay attention to when choosing the best choice of agent for you when you’re buying in Alexandria:

  1. Check out agent referrals. — I like Angie’s List because I know that Angie’s List voice verifies each review. You can also see if the agent or brokerage has any awards for client satisfaction.
  2. Interview several Realtors — You don’t have to exhaust yourself chatting with agent after agent, but at least interface with two or three to see who you’re most comfortable with. There is no one-size-fits-all. I know that I’m not the agent for every purchaser.
  3. Don’t under estimate the value of chemistry. — You will probably be working with your real estate professional anywhere from 2 to 12 months, so it helps to get along with them. You want a Realtor that “gets you”.
  4. Ask the Realtor his/her process for finding townhouses in Alexandria. — When selecting a Realtor, ask how they search for residences. Some agents have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s right for you, not what’s ideal for your agent. So make sure the Realtor is willing to search high and low to find the perfect townhouse for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
  5. Learn more about the representation agreement presented to you. — The Commonwealth of Virginia requires all licensed agents to sign a representation agreement before showing properties or having material discussions about a specific pied-a-terre. Be very wary of any agent that is not concerned about getting a representation agreement signed. It’s critical that you examine all documents during the home buying process, and that includes your agent’s representation agreement. This advice is heavily used for a reason.
