Choosing a qualified and experienced real estate agency can mean all the difference in your real estate experience and the success of your transaction. While the specific details of what you’ll be looking for are different whether buying or selling, there are a few core values that make up a great real estate agency.
Quite simply, there is no substitution for experience in today’s ever-changing real estate market. From being able to foresee issues before they arise to understanding the intricacies of the various types of real estate transactions, an experienced real estate agency can promote and protect their client’s best interest with ease. Particularly in the luxury real estate sector, where not all firms have experience with seven- and eight-figure real estate deals, experience is crucial.

Why buy and sell real estate with an agency that doesn’t know the lay of the land?
Knowledge of the market – whether buying or selling – is crucial to your success. From introducing you to up and coming investment markets to advising you on market activity in your own neighborhood, a good real estate agency should have a veteran’s knowledge of the communities you’re interested in.
As the real estate industry changes, more and more importance is being placed on an agency’s marketing abilities and use of technology. In an age where more than 90% of home buyers start their search online, a good real estate agency should have the online presence needed to capture buyers. Furthermore, a quality agency needs to have the technology resources available to both buyers and sellers to make communication effortless.
Having excellent resources and connections in the real estate industry can mean everything from knowing the right home inspector or handyman to having the area’s best closing attorney and mortgage professional on speed dial. If you’ve found a real estate agency that’s made it through Qualities #1-3, they likely possess Quality #4.
With experience, knowledge of the market, and market savvy, a great real estate agency will have made countless connections along the way and will be able to easily provide you with a list of recommended sources for a variety of needs. This is equally beneficial to both buyers and sellers who may need a little help or advice from time to time.
