Hey neighbors! I am Kristen Manchester and I am a local Encinitas Realtor with Coldwell Banker West.
If you are just starting your home buying/selling process, and are unsure of how to hire the right agent, keep reading!
1) TRUST your INTUITION!
Many agents are consumed with numbers and their stats. Don’t hire those agents because they are mostly concerned with their own reputation and they will leave you hanging when you need them the most.
2) Hire someone you connect with!
When you start your process, interview at least 3 agents. Who you build a great rapport with off the bat is the agent you should hire. That agent should understand your wants, needs, and will help you navigate through the entire process with minimal to no stress on you or your wallet. A great agent will also incorporate that often overlooked element of fun! Real estate doesn’t always have to be stressful! Also, you will be spending a lot of time with this agent, so make sure he/she won’t be pawning you off on their assistant when things get busy! The right agent will make time for you, and will be immediately responsive and won’t lack communication! This is key!
3) Make sure your agent is offering you every resource for maximum exposure for your listing, or has access to many resources to help you find your home.
