Real Estate Agent Area

I am looking into suburbs of Seattle for housing and think I like both Everett and Puyallup, but they are on opposite ends of the city, about 60 miles apart.  How can I hire a real estate agent that will help us with both locations?  Will I need to hire two agents?

One option is to interview a company that has offices in both areas like CBBain. Talk to the principle managing broker in the one closest to you, explain your criteria and have them make a referral of an agent in each office.
An agent who tries to cover those 2 areas isn't being very honest with their time.
You can look at my website for offices in both locations.

You should hire an agent with good market knowledge for each of the areas you are looking into. Given the distance it's very unlikely that it will be the same person. Like John said, you should go with a company that has offices in both locations this way you can make sure that the agents will collaborate to find you the best house that fits your needs. Coldwell Banker Bain has offices in both locations and you can go to their website (cbbain.com) and see a list of all the offices and agents for each office.

I agree with Jon.  Get one good agent, then get them to refer you to someone in the other location.  Then they can work together to coordinate finding you a home.

That's quite a stretch.  I think an agent that covers both areas will be extremely hard to find.  It's 60 miles, but with Seattle in between?  How long does that drive take?
I suggest choosing an agent in each location.

Begin by interviewing agents to see if you'll be a good fit as far as working together and to find out if they're knowledgeable about both areas you have interest in. You may find one that is and will help you with both. A good agent should refer you to another agent if they're not knowledgeable about a particular area.
