    How do you take the right steps to find the right real estate agent near you? One that will meet all of your real estate needs? Here are some steps you can take to ensure finding the perfect real estate agent for your home buying and selling needs.

    1. Take a look through yelp & other online resources

    In today’s day and age, technology can be a huge helpful guide in making big decisions. Check out realtor’s in your area and look at their ratings, reviews, and responses on yelp. When choosing a realtor to work with it is important to choose someone that values all your needs. Reading through some of the reviews left by previous clients can help you gain a good idea of how a certain realtor is.

    Other online resources to find a realtor include www.homelight.com, where you specify your location, whether you are buying or selling a home, and the price range you are working with. After this information is given, you will be given agents in the specified area that are most experienced with the criteria provided.

    2. Find an agent with community involvement

    Is your agent involved with his or her community outside of their job? Community involvement from an agent shows that they go above and beyond the boundaries of their job for the well being and togetherness of their neighborhoods. Many outgoing real estate agents host community wide events in the hopes of bringing people together to have an enjoyable time and getting to know them.

    3. How much experience does your agent have? How many listings?

    An experienced agent will know more about his industry and have a better understanding of the cities they serve. Full time real estate agents pursue real estate as their career and should constantly be following the market. So don’t be afraid to ask them some tough questions.

    4. Referrals

    Being referred to an agent by a friend or a family member is usually noteworthy. Personal accounts from one’s experience will help you gain an understanding for a specific real estate agent. Again, don’t be afraid to get the contact information from whoever is referring an agent in order to reach out personally and ask some questions.
