I get most of my Buyers from past clients over the last 20 years, from friends and from Brothers of the Masonic or Shriners organization that I'm a member of. I get a few from open houses or buyers that call Prudential Fox&Roach due to our advertising and reputation. And I get a few from mailings I send out to Apartument houses. Bill Graves
Hi David-This is Gracey from Zillow.Please refrain from providing your contact details on your comments. The users can go to your profile page to view your information. Please abide by the Good Neighbor Policy (http://www.zillow.com/how ... olicy.htm) in the future.Thanks for your understanding.
When selecting a qualified Realtor, the first step is to build a profile for your ideal property because you need to use that profile to pick the right Realtor with applicable experience. This step is key to finding the right professional to represent you in your next home purchase. Determine the neighborhoods or geographic locations where you would ideally buy, as well as your price range (this may require speaking to a mortgage broker and getting pre-qualified), square footage, bedrooms, garage spaces, etc. It is important to have this information ready for your new Realtor but moreover, determining these paramaters helps you to actually locate properties online and in turn the right Agent. Once you have a profile and some subject properties, now is the time to find an Agent and start viewing properties. To find the best agent, you want one that is active in your profile neighborhoods and price ranges. To do this, you should be familiar with the Realtors past sales and current listings. I found a useful website called <A HREF="http://www.realestatespace.com">RealEstateSpace.com</A> for matching your property profile with experienced local real estate agents based on their transactional experience. I suggest trying it out before you go with a referral from a friend. While hiring a trustworthy agent is important, hiring a trustworthy local expert is even better! You need someone who has their finger on local market's pulse.
I plan on choosing the agent that lies to me the best. They will be the one that convinces me that "30% down from the peak is a gift" and that "there is no crystal ball to tell how much further it can go." So, together with "today's low mortgage rates," I can lock myself into a depreciating house and lose all my downpayment, "instead of paying my landlord's mortgage."
If you want to find a Realtor that you know has the experience you need, you should locate one by referral. If you have no one in your circle of friends or family in the area that can recommend someone who is a top selling or listing agent, try a free referral service. They have the connections to find the best Realtors in the local offices and you will not have to rely on a sales pitch or guesswork.Good Luck and Best Wishes
