Zillow Advice: Home Selling - how do I find iout which agent has sold/ has the most experience w malden ma http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-I-find-iout-which-agent-has-sold-has-the-most-experience-w-malden-ma/507544/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Your question doesn't say ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-I-find-iout-which-agent-has-sold-has-the-most-experience-w-malden-ma/507544/ Your question doesn't say if you're looking for a Buyers or Sellers agent. &nbsp;With today's market having a shortage of available inventory, some Buyers are seeking Listing Agents for representation. &nbsp;So with that in mind, I'll answer how to find the most experienced agents for both Buyers and Sellers.<br/><br/>Total experience is fine but look at a different industry for a moment. &nbsp;Pilots are required to have two types of experience before they are eligible to fly for the major airlines. &nbsp;Total time flying is the main experience level but add to that requirement "type" experience as well. &nbsp;A military pilot who flies Navy jets off an aircraft carrier could not change to an airline without additional training as well as experience.<br/><br/>The same thought for real estate experience holds true. &nbsp;So, if you're looking to find an agent to sell your property, it's easy to see who list the most homes in Malden by looking at properties For Sale. &nbsp;This doesn't show how many they have sold but currently listed for sale. &nbsp;Zillow shows total listings for sale by an agent but you can look deeper to find they are stretched over an area that is so large it doesn't give a true picture of your local area. &nbsp;<br/><br/>If you're looking for an experienced Buyer's Agent, that information could be found by searching the Find a Pro on Zillow and entering Malden, MA. &nbsp;Read the agent's profile and reviews. &nbsp;The reviews say if they helped as a Buyer's or Seller's broker. &nbsp;Reviews are an excellent source of information regardless of experience. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Good luck searching for the right agent for your specific needs.<br/><br/>Bob Tue, 20 Aug 2013 12:41:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-I-find-iout-which-agent-has-sold-has-the-most-experience-w-malden-ma/507544/ 2013-08-20T12:41:00Z I have closed 36 deals this ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-I-find-iout-which-agent-has-sold-has-the-most-experience-w-malden-ma/507544/ I have closed 36 deals this year.
