How to Choose the ‘Right’ RealtorMore Less
And Brokerage Company
There are approximately 19,000 Real
Estate Agents of which approximately 1700 are Realtor-Brokers on Oahu.
Work with a Realtor (R)-Broker!
Experienced. Higher Education!
R.A.s’ Do Not Have a Brokers License!
Approximately 90% of these 19,000 Real Estate Agents sell less than 5 homes a year. That leaves about 10% of all Real Estate Agents doing most of the business!
It is not about ‘years in the business’ for ‘qualifying’ a Realtor, it is about the Number of Transactions! The more Transactions a Realtor has had the more experienced they are! It is that simple!
The Industry Standard in Hawaii for the # of Transactions/Agent is 4.31/yr.
