Zillow Advice: Investing - How to find a Realtor who focuses on Investment Property http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-find-a-Realtor-who-focuses-on-Investment-Property/519426/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Everyone will say they work ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-find-a-Realtor-who-focuses-on-Investment-Property/519426/ Everyone will say they work with investors, but few actually understand the needs and financial calculations required to actually qualify a property.<br/><br/>Call a few BROKERS, not agents in the area you are looking, and ask for their best Investor Agent.&nbsp; Before comitting to them, make sure they understand what your goals are.<br/><br/>Once you find an agent to work with, be loyal and don't nit pick the small stuff.&nbsp; Also be able to make quick decisions and have the capital available.<br/><br/>I work with a number of investors in Florida, and I don't take on new investors without verifying they are ready willing and able to perform.&nbsp; If they are not comitted, have the cash, and can respond quickly, they would not be someone I can work with.&nbsp; <br/><br/>As good agent will be your most valuable asset.&nbsp; Don't look at them as a liability.&nbsp; Remember they want to make you money! inturn, they make money.&nbsp; <br/> Tue, 19 Nov 2013 00:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-find-a-Realtor-who-focuses-on-Investment-Property/519426/ 2013-11-19T00:21:00Z I would suggest you contact ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-find-a-Realtor-who-focuses-on-Investment-Property/519426/ I would suggest you contact brokers or managers of your local real estate office. They will be able to set you up with agents that specialize in investment buying.<br/><br/>I wish you the best!

The truth is that you are going to have a hard time finding agents that "Specialize" in much at all. To most, specializing implies a greater depth of knowledge on a specific or limited subject/area based on experience and possibly training. To a real estate agent, "specialize" can mean taking any client with any need from Monterey to Marin.<br/><br/>Investment properties have been a good part of my business over the last 25 years. I have owned investment properties over the years and own one currently. Perhaps you might want to start with agents that are investors themselves. Which of course if profoundly self serving since I just pointed out that I fit into that category.<br/><br/>Talk to agents and see who strikes you as someone who is going to be a good source. However, the investor/realtor relationship is a bit different than others. The trust needs to be mutually earned.<br/><br/>Let me know if I can help.<br/><br/>Thanks,<br/>Robert Tue, 19 Nov 2013 18:09:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-find-a-Realtor-who-focuses-on-Investment-Property/519426/ 2013-11-19T18:09:00Z In case you haven't read ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-find-a-Realtor-who-focuses-on-Investment-Property/519426/ <p>In case you haven't read it, read Craig Fialkowski's answer below.&nbsp; He nailed it.<br/><br/>Many brokers/agents do not have the proper skills to help you.&nbsp;&nbsp;But, many more have been burned by wanna-be investors who&nbsp;want an agent to do a lot of work for them -- only to have the "investor" fail to follow-through.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Pick your agent carefully and create a&nbsp;mutually beneficial&nbsp;business relationship...&nbsp;<br/><br/>Good luck in your investing.</p> Tue, 19 Nov 2013 14:17:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-find-a-Realtor-who-focuses-on-Investment-Property/519426/ 2013-11-19T14:17:00Z [Content removed by Zillow ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-find-a-Realtor-who-focuses-on-Investment-Property/519426/ <p>[Content removed by Zillow Moderator.
