The ideal agent in Northern Virginia for you may have less experience, and might not have a brand new car. The most suitable licensed real estate adviser for you is easy to get along with,  and appreciates how to work with the budget you establish.

Here's my bits of advice for spotting the best choice of Realtor for you when you're purchasing a house in Arlington County:

    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 interviewing agent after agent, but at least chat with two or three to see who you're most comfortable with. The real estate pro should have time to speak to you. If you pick the most popular agent in 22207, you might find yourself working with a junior associate affiliated with that Realtor.
    3. There should be a certain chemistry between you and your agent. — You don't want to have to explain the same thoughts and ideas over and over. You will probably be working with your real estate agent anywhere from 2 to 12 months, so it helps to get along with them.
    4. Find out how each Realtor identifies properties. — When picking a licensed real estate adviser, ask how they find homes. Some Realtors have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s best choice of for you, not what’s most compatible for your Realtor. So make sure the Realtor is willing to search high and low to find the right dwelling for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
    5. Read paperwork carefully. — The Commonwealth of Virginia requires all licensed agents to sign a representation agreement before showing properties or having material discussions about a specific home. Be very wary of any agent that is not concerned about getting a representation agreement signed. This advice is heavily used for a reason. Some representation agreements describe hidden administrative fees of $500 to $1000 that you must pay at closing. (Our does not.)
