How To Choose A Chandler Real Estate Agent

Chandler REALTORBuying or selling a Chandler area home is often one of the largest financial transactions any of us will make. More likely than not a Chandler real estate agent will play an important role in helping you find your dream home or selling your current home. So How Should You Choose A Chandler Real Estate Agent? I’m Stephen Garner. I’ve spent 10 years in the escrow and title world up close with some of the best Chandler real estate agents. This has given me a unique perspective on what a good Chandler REALTOR looks like and how to choose one. Below are some qualities I would look for in a Chandler real estate agent or Chandler REALTOR if I was buying or selling my Chandler, Arizona home.

One thing I would like you to notice is that you “found” this article. This is important to note because real estate marketing has changed significantly. The old days of Chandler real estate agents saturating a Chandler neighborhood with postcards and flyers or advertising in expensive Chandler real estate publications to sell a home is less effective today than ever. Real Estate consumers [like you] have changed their behavior. Today, over 94% of home buyers will begin their buying or information gathering process on the Internet just like you did. You found my website because I knew how to position it so that you would – when you needed it. Can you see how powerful that would be if you were selling your Chandler home? If you are considering selling your Chandler home, it is this kind of real estate marketing that you will need to get it found online by the right buyer and at the right time.

Below I have listed some qualities I – Stephen Garner “MyTitleGuy” a real estate industry professional would look for in a Chandler REALTOR and WHY.

I would look for a Chandler Real Estate Agent That Has These Qualities:

 

Familiar with the local market

I would want a Chandler REALTOR that is familiar with my neighborhood and local Chandler market conditions. Notice I said “local” market conditions. Listing and sales prices fluctuate greatly in two areas as close as 2 miles apart.

Knowledgeable

I want a Chandler real estate agent that knows their way around the real estate purchase contract and how to negotiate. Just because a Chandler real estate agent is licensed doesn’t mean they understand either. I want my Chandler real estate agent to specialize in the area of Chandler I am buying or selling in. A residential Chandler real estate agent for a residential property, A commercial Chandler real estate agent for the purchase or sale of a commercial property and a Chandler short sale real estate agent for a short sale property etc.

Honest

I want a Chandler real estate agent that is going to be straight with me – whether I want to hear it or not. “Yes, that dark green paint is ugly and needs to go” or if I was getting my Chandler home ready for the market “Stephen, the OX head in the living room could turn off some buyers”.

Communication

You would think communication would be one of the basics to be a Chandler real estate agent but it is not always present. Some real estate agents are not very good at returning emails or phone calls. The number 1 complaint in the real estate industry is lack of communication. Real estate sales is a service, like most services, it relies heavily upon communication – good communication. I want my Chandler real estate agent to communicate with me in the method and manner I prefer – email, phone, text message, facebook – whatever that method is. Because buying or selling a home can be stressful, I would also like a schedule of check in’s. Trust me, doing so will cut down on your anxiety.

Full Time

Real estate sales is not a part time job. I would want my Chandler real estate agent to be available when a potential home buyer is. I wouldn’t want to wait until my Chandler REALTOR gets off his/her “other” job before they could answer a potential buyer inquiry or offer. In my experience, this is where a Chandler real estate agent with a team can be helpful – team members can cover for each other, this way I can get the service I believe I deserve.

Savvy with Technology

A Chandler REALTOR comfortable with technology is non negotiable for me. I want a Chandler REALTOR that has a strong, website, that understands the power of search engines like Yahoo, Bing, Google and YouTube. Social media is valuable as well but not as important as getting my home found on the Internet. Remember, over 94% of real estate buyers start their home search on the Internet, I want my Chandler real estate agent to know HOW to get my home to stand out on the Internet – where most of the buyers are.

Licensed

I want my Chandler real estate agent to not only be licensed, but also be in good standing. Meaning – NO complaints from past clients. Go to Google, and enter the name of the Chandler real estate agent in quotes[“”] like so: “MyTitleGuy” this will deliver search results related to that Chandler real estate agent you may also see what other consumers have to say about him/her – Good and Bad.

Buying or Selling a Chandler home in today’s competitive real estate market includes many factors. Visibility on the Internet should be one of the top priorities for anyone selling a Chandler home. Some Chandler real estate agents may tell you they have visibility online. Ask them to show you. Have the Chandler real estate agent SHOW YOU HOW AND WHERE their real estate listings and/or marketing is at the top of search engines like . I knew what you were looking for because you found my article. A technologically savvy Chandler real estate agent will know how to attract a buyer for your home – online. Chances are, the buyer for your Chandler home is likely to come from the Internet.
