The most suitable Realtor is not necessarily flamboyant, and may have less experience. The perfect licensed real estate adviser has the flexibility to work on your schedule,  and wants to find a home that appeals to you (rather than to the Realtor).

    2. Check out licensed real estate adviser 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

    3. Take a minute to talk to a couple of Realtors — You sometimes need to see the place you don't want to buy to feel comfortable with the home you will get. It's the same with real estate pros. The real estate agent you choose should be able to clearly understand your needs.
    4. Your Realtor should be someone you won't mind spending some time with. — You don't want to have to explain the same thoughts and ideas over and over. You and your Realtor might be spending a lot of time together.
    5. Find out how each licensed real estate adviser identifies garden-style condos for the property seeker. — When choosing a agent, ask how they search for homes. Some agents have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s ideal for you, not what’s most compatible for your real estate professional. So make sure the real estate agent is willing to search high and low to find the right abode for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
    6. 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 garden-style condo. Be very wary of any agent that is not concerned about getting a representation agreement signed. It doesn't hurt to have a lawyer take a look at your representation agreement, but usually that's not necessary. The document is pretty straight forward. Some representation agreements describe hidden administrative fees of $500 to $1000 that you must pay at closing. (Our does not.)
