Keys and house

Choosing the right real estate agent is… well….. scary!!! Don’t kid yourself. We ALL go through the emotions!! Trust me.  Choosing the right agent makes ALL the difference in the world!! From buying or selling your home, it’s like a job interview, and should be. You want and need to know that you’ve got the best to do the best.

*You need to look at all of the facts when choosing the perfect realtor*

Here are some key categories that you should look into before you make your final decision.

1.Look at the reviews!!! 

2.Ask for a “pre-listing” appointment

3. Ask about commission rates

4. Do a “personality” test

5. Have a check list before and during your appointment & make sure that you ask all of your questions you may have  and make sure that all of your questions have been answered!!

There’s no magic number when it comes to experience. But sellers should look for agents with enough sales under their belts to comfortably handle deals from listing to closing. Equally important the agents need to know their areas and markets, and have familiarity with all of the local inventory.

Ask about the marketing department!! This is very important!!  This allows for you to know the greatest numbers of potential buyers.

Make sure that you have have great communication!!! You should hear from your agent A LOT!! You should be kept informed of all information from start to finish!

Ask your agent about working with buyers! And what their experiences have been. The insight into the mind of a buyer makes an agent a great negotiator!!

It’s valuable to find an agent who has a solid grasp of home financing because loan issues can make or break a deal. Make sure that you have a reputable and reliable lender to secure the loan. You do NOT want any delays with financing.  Your agent should give you their “lender of choice” during your first visit.

Finding the right agent is hard, that’s why our team goes above and beyond for our clients!!! Call the Estes Group Real Estate Team today!!

Are you ready?


Are you Ready to Buy or Sell Your Home?

Are you trying to decide whether it’s the right time to either Buy a new home or Sell your current home? Well, now is the time!! Interest rates are the lowest they’ve been in years & the agent and company you choose is the most important decision you will make. Choosing to sell or buy a home / condo is a major decision, and that’s why we take the time to listen to our clients. By understanding each person’s needs and ideas,  we can target specific neighborhoods, and streamline their home buying/selling process.



Before you put your home on the market

Be sure to ask the right questions and get the right answers. Here are just a few of the questions you should ask when interviewing your agent.

  1. What strategies will you use to find a buyer for my home?
  2. How will you help me determine the correct asking price for my home?
  3. What type of communication can I expect from you?

Our custom home seller guide details these answers, plus other important factors that have successfully met the needs of home sellers in your neighborhood. We market 100%! 


Before you buy a home

Be sure to ask the right questions and get the right answers. Here are just a few questions that you should ask your agent:

  1. What is the current absorption rate in our area?
  2. What strategies should I use when competing with other buyers for the same house?
  3. Should I be pre-approved by a lender – and can you help me with that?
  4. Who selects the homes that I will see?

When our clients are ready to search for a home, they can let our team know what they’re looking for, and we will preform a daily search to gather the most wants and needs of our clients. With constant contact with our clients, we will then set up appointments with the homes/condos of their choice.

Being pre-approved is a big step in buying a home. It not only give our clients a piece of mind with knowing what they can look for in a home, but gives our team  a range to search for that perfect home.

With turning actions into transactions, and building relationships along the way!!

We’re ready to work fokwlogor you!!
