The best way to decide if your agent is doing a good job is to ask lots of questions. Ask them what they are doing to market your home, ask them how the market is doing, ask them if any homes in your neighborhood have sold recently, if so, how much, how comparable were they to your home, how many days were they on the market, how many homes that are comparable to mine are on the market now, is there anything else I can do to help market my home? Remember, your Realtor doesn't control the market just like your GPS can't control traffic. Your Realtor is your GPS through this tough market. Make sure you ask lots of questions but also realize that they don't control the market.
Listen to your instincts, communication is key. When you signed a listing contract the agent should have outlined a marketing plan and a list of services. If you feel as if the agent is not communicating with you, or not marketing your property do not be afraid discuss it with them.Good luck!
Your agent IS doing a good job for you if:1. They communicate often and effectively with you. (Honestly- many sellers think agents should be talking to them every day, and it's really just not feasible for us to be in constantly daily communication sometimes because of other clients who need our attention.) If you need more communication than you're receiving, you need to express that to your agent. If you don't see a quick change or at least have reached an agreement on what is acceptable to you, then your relationship isn't a fit and you should move on to find a better suited agent to you.2. If they're using all marketing available to aggressively move your property. In this market you need as many irons in the fire to get your property seen and sold. They should have had a broker caravan, open house, marketing flyers to the property and on your sign, information and pictures on their website and additional sites like Zillow. If they're doing all of this and your home hasn't sold, then you may just have to be patient as most other homeowners out there who are waiting for buyers to appear in this sparse market.3. Hearing and responding to your concerns or needs. Your agent should be actively "representing" you which means they need to be sure all your concerns are addressed while negotiating a contract and while in escrow.Hope this helps, but like Ryan mentioned below- simply the fact you're posing this question on Zillow says there's a problem at least starting that you need to talk to your agent about directly to see if this is a solveable problem or an inpass. Best of luck!
