Can you help me find an Agent?

We are a month away from our approval letter for our loan. We want to start looking now. But we need an Agent. You have a lot to choose from. We just want someone who will be attentive. We are looking for something particular. Not planning on buying to resell. This will be a family generation home. Please contact us if you can help.

Hi,

You can search here or on trulia. Look for a real estate agent that is a REALTOR®. If that person is not a REALTOR®, then keep on looking. A REALTOR® follows a strict code of ethics.

I'm also a bit concerned about how loan approval could take a month.  Assuming you're not waiting for something like a tax return, that the loan officer doesn't control, that might be a concern.

I'm going to go a different route.  Rather than look for agents on Trulia or Zillow (many of whose qualifications are limited to paying for ad space), ask your loan officer for a referral (assuming this lengthy loan approval process isn't their fault).  Lenders tend to refer clients to qualified agents, and agent tend to refer their clients to qualified lenders (absent a family relationship situation).  Neither wants to refer their client to someone who can't get the job done, because they may end up losing a transaction.

Well, you've come to the right place! Browse the many agents in your area and don't hesitate to call them and ask questions. A good Realtor® will be attentive and patient and will answer to the best of their knowledge and will not sugarcoat.

Hope you find the right person for the job!
Best wishes and God bless.

@medlinstephan,

Why are you a month away from an approval letter?  That seems like a long time in underwriting  . . . In any case I know of a great realtor in WA and knows the area.  Her name is Connie Uy, look her up here on Zillow.

Use Zillow to find a few seasoned agents in the area you will be looking to buy.  Call and speak with a few to have a discussion about what you are looking to do in the next couple months. Make your decision based on who you felt best answered your questions and gives you the best feeling.

If you know anyone in the area where you will be buying, you could also ask them for a referral.

Good luck!

I recommend looking at the Zillow and Trulia recommendations for someone in your area as well as seeking out an agent with the ABR Accreditation.  Accredited Buyers Agent.  You can also find one online at REBAC.NET

Congratulations and god luck!
