The Seven Main Roles Of Your Real Estate Agent

  1. Educates you about your market
  2. Analyzes your wants and needs
  3. Guides you to homes that fit your criteria
  4. Coordinates the work of other needed professionals
  5. Negotiates on your behalf
  6. Checks and double-checks paperwork and deadlines
  7. Solves any problems that may arise
First and foremost, your agent will serve as your market consultant. That is, you will depend on your agent to
educate you about your local real estate market and make sure you understand everything you need and want to
know about the local home-buying process. We recommend you look for an agent who listens and then clearly
communicates information in a way that makes sense to you. After orienting you to your market, your agent will
help analyze what exactly you need and want in a home-including things you may never have considered- so that
when you take to the streets looking for homes, you’ll know exactly what you’re looking for. Then your agent will
guide that home-to-home search for a property that meets all your needs and as many of your wants as possible.

Most first time home buyer’s will experience fear in one form or enough when they begin the process of looking for their first home. They become afraid of what to do or where to go and can let their fears paralyze them from making a good decision. A good real estate agent helps his clients by educating them about the market and making the home buying process as enjoyable, efficent, and pleasant an experience as possible. A good agent can remove all the fears of a first time home buyer.

Your agent isn’t the only expert whose assistance you’ll need throughout the home-buying process. As you move
ahead, other specialized advisers, such as a mortgage officer and property inspector, will also help you complete
your purchase. Look for and agent who can expertly coordinate all the professionals involved in your home
purchase.

Your agent’s role as negotiator kicks in from the moment you make an offer on a home, and it doesn’t stop until
you’ve taken ownership and everything is settled. As a skilled negotiator, your agent will always represent your
interests and push hard for the best deal without pushing so hard the deal is killed. If things do get tense, your
agent will serve as a buffer between you and the seller or seller’s agent, remaining cool headed and logical while
exploring different options to find the win-win. More often than you would think, your agent will actually
continue to advocate for you well beyond the closing of the home due to unforeseen problems that can occur after
you’ve taken ownership.
Throughout the closing process, a myriad of details will be resolved behind the scenes. Your agent will constantly
check to see that time lines are meet, paperwork is completed, updates have been filed, and the important steps are
completed. Almost without fail, there will be problems. Your agent will prevent them when they can be
anticipated and solve them when they are unforeseen.
        In short, your real estate agent will wear many hats. You may find your agent through a strong referral from a
trusted friend, relative, colleague, or own by your own research when visiting sites like this one! No matter how
you meet your agent, we think it will benefit you both if you ask a few important questions:
Eight Important Questions To Ask Your Agent
  1. Why did you become a real estate agent?
  2. Why should I work with you?
  3. What do you do better than other real estate agents?
  4. What process will you use to help find me the right home for my particular wants and needs?
  5. What are the most common things that go wrong in a transaction and how would handle them?
  6. What are some mistakes that you think people make when buying their first home?
  7. What other professionals do you suggest we work with and what are their credentials?
  8. Can you provide me with refrences or testimonials from past clients?
