I would also encourage you to speak with any prospective agent and ask them how they will schedule showings to meet your schedule and how available they are to ask questions when you are not with them looking at homes.

I think scheduling a phone call to "interview" the realtor is a great way to find out if your personalities mesh well. You definitely want to find a realtor that you enjoy talking to because the house hunting process requires good communication between agent and client. Best of luck in finding your realtor and have fun finding your new home!!!!!
