Real Estate Brokers

Interviewing Real Estate Brokers

When determining what real estate broker to use for your property hunting, consider asking the following questions:

  • Are you a full-time broker? (Full-time experience could be better)
  • For how long? (Look for two years or more)
  • Are you a licensed realtor? (Members adhere to a Code of Ethics)
  • Are you part of the Multiple Listing Service?
  • Would you be willing to work as a buyer's broker? Would you be willing to work with a buyer's broker? In either case, how would your fee be handled?
  • Will you give me references? (If they're reluctant, go elsewhere)
  • How many homes have you sold this year? (In normal markets, look for at least one per month)
  • What services will you provide for me?
  • Do you frequently deal with investment and rental properties? (If applicable)
