If you were to buy a home where would you look to find an agent?

Response
I would look in the newspaper so that you can actually find a realtor that is also the listing agent of the home that attracts you.  Also, going to open houses exposes you to realtors.... after a while you will find someone that you really like.  Or, ask your friends for a referral of someone they like!

I'm clueless as to buying a home. What should be my 1st steps?

Answer
We recommend that you first consult with a lender or mortgage broker to discuss your finances.  Be clear about your goal to find a home and with the help of the lender determine what it will take for you to qualify for a loan.  At that point you will also know how much of a home you can afford.  With this information in hand, find a realtor.  It is very important to find someone that you feel comfortable with and trust.  In my professional opinion, it is best to work with a realtor vs. going at it on your own.  You will learn more in a shorter time and have representation at the same time!

Executor selling parents home a mess, should the realtor say something

Answer
There is a difference between the executor of your parents estate and your realtor.  A real estate agent can only recommend what the seller or executor should do to attract buyers and viable offers.   It is definitely worth while to clean up the home without investing to much money.
