Real Estate Agent Referrals When Buying a House

by Homeowner

Real Estate Agent Referrals When Buying a House: Regarding When I was buying a house I chose my real estate agent by getting referrals from my friends. I asked them how the person worked out for them and if they would recommend them again.


Once I had a few names, I then picked one based on the neighborhoods they specialized in and whether they work in an area I want to be in. I picked someone that specialized in the urban areas and was knowledgeable about town homes and condos.

My real estate agent worked out well and I was able to purchase a condo in the neighborhood where I wanted to live. I haven't used her again because I haven't needed an agent.

The only thing I would do differently next time I'm buying a house is maybe find a real estate agent with more experience. The one I chose was fairly new in the business. She did a good job but I'm not sure all of the i's were dotted and the t's crossed.

Dear Homeowner, I can't think of a better way to find a real estate agent that by referral. It is their job to troubleshoot many problems before they happen when you are buying a house. If they are really great, you may not even realize all the issues they probably have addressed!
