You only have one job
When you’re looking to appoint an agent, you only have one job. Find an agent who you can trust handing the keys of your biggest asset too. Whether it be for sales or rentals, you are appointing a person and a company that will literally change the course of your life.
Whether it be getting the extra money out of that buyer which gives you the budget to buy the house you thought was out of reach or the allocation of time given to ensure all the due diligence is done when finding the perfect tenant that treats your home like their own, which saved you money in maintenance and repairs giving you extra funds to take that European vacation. The decision you make in the beginning will determine the outcome of which direction your life will go in the end.
Above everything, when you’re dealing with your biggest asset, think further than just the best deal or easy solution. Put the time into searching for the right agent for yourself, the agent that fits perfectly to the outcome you want to receive. Keep interviewing until you know you have found the right one for you and don’t ever settle for second best.
