Eight important questions to ask your Consultant

Qualifications are important. However, finding a solid, professional means getting beyond the resume, and into what makes an effective consultant. Use the following questions as your starting point in hiring your licensed, real estate professional:

  1. Why did you become a real estate professional?
  2. Why should I work with you?
  3. What do you do better than other typical real estate agents?
  4. What process will you use to help me find 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 you 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 references or testimonials from past clients?
