Our dedication to clients is unparalleled, and we will do whatever it takes to make sure everyone involved in each real estate transaction is satisfied. Therefore, we thought it would be great to let our readers know what qualities they should be looking for in a real estate agent. Whether you are buying or selling your home, or potentially considering joining the outstanding Turner Associates team, read this Top Ten list of expert real estate agent qualities and make sure you are making a smart decision when choosing your agent!

10. They Are Great Problem Solvers

The ideal agent will not be daunted by issues that may arise during the real estate process. They will think outside of the box to ensure their clients’ happiness. Whether this involves great negotiating skills or finding a creative way to market a listing to attract the right buyer, the agent believes that every problem has a solution.

9. They Have Proof

It is said that the best predictor of future behavior is past experience. The best real estate agents will not be afraid to provide potential clients with references from those they have worked with in the past. Testimonials are a surefire way to truly gauge your agent’s abilities.

8. They Pay Attention

A great real estate agent pays attention to details as soon as they meet their prospective client. They find out what exactly their client is hoping to get out of the transaction, their current and future needs, motivation for buying and selling, etc. Additionally, they will communicate and follow up with their client as needed.

7. They Have Integrity

To have a long and successful real estate career, it is crucial that real estate agents remain honest and full of integrity. High ethical standards are key, and this should translate not only to their real estate profession, but their life outside of work.

6. They Are Proactive

Real estate agents should be hardworking and self-motivated. They pursue all leads, call potential buyers, and stay on top of their customer’s needs through clear communication. They are highly client motivated and have a strong desire to create a prosperous professional destiny.

5. They Understand The Local Housing Market

Every housing market has its own unique trends, distinctions, and pricing strategy. The top real estate agents have done their research and act accordingly! Make sure your agent consistently stays aware of the local market and is able to identify a way that allows the client to stand out from the competition.

4. They Are Good Listeners

If you find yourself talking to an agent that won’t let you get a word in, RUN! The best agents make sure they ask their clients a plethora of questions and pay close attention to the answers. An agent who does not respect the thoughts and opinions of their client will not see long-term success.

3. They Have A Genuine Passion For The Industry

When a real estate agent truly loves what they do, it shows in their work. They will constantly work to build their professional relationships and continue their knowledge and education in real estate. Clients will see that they care about the industry, and ultimately, their needs.

2. They Have Strong Network Connections

Being effective in real estate truly means mastering the art of networking and making solid connections. These include connections with other real estate agents and brokers, potential buyers, sellers, and investors, and other important players in the industry such as appraisers, home inspectors, and mortgage loan officers. Having a well-rounded portfolio of connections will help agents assist their clients in a variety of different areas.

1. They Can Communicate

We have stressed this point throughout the blog and we will say it again: communication is key! The real estate market is time sensitive, and being able to get in touch with your agent is essential! At Turner Associates we actually conducted our own intense research and found that the biggest complaint of clients (prior to working with us of course) was not being able to access their agents! We use all technology (smartphones, laptops, iPads, etc.) to stay available to our clients at all times. Giving clients the answers they need NOW is the golden rule of our business!
