The Importance of Choosing a Full-Time Realtor WITH Experience

Buying or selling a home will be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, financial transaction you will be involved with throughout your lifetime.  It is critical for you to realize the importance of hiring a Realtor to work for you who is not only a full-time Realtor but one who has experience in the area that you are buying/selling.

There are many Realtors who get their license as a Sales Representative or Broker and do a few deals a year, usually working for family and friends.  There are also Realtors who appear to be working full-time as Sales Representatives/Brokers but in fact have a full-time job elsewhere and just do real estate on the side part-time.  Research who you plan on hiring as your Realtor.  Ask them how long they have had their license, how many homes they have listed and sold and how long have they been a full-time Realtor for.  If they skip around these questions ask them if they have another job that may be taking up a significant portion of their time.

By selecting a full-time Realtor who has experience working in the industry, you will be provided with a wealth of knowledge about home sales in the area and details about the properties listed for sale that other agents might not be aware of.   You can have confidence that the Realtor you have hired to work for you knows what they are doing based on real life experience, not just what they have learned about in the classroom. 

At HomeLife Emerald Realty Ltd. Brokerage we have 5 full-time Realtors working here all with extensive years of experience and knowledge.  Three of the Realtors have over 25+ years experience each selling real estate in the Angus and surrounding areas.  That is not combined years of selling that you typically can find on other Realtor’s advertisements, but three individual Realtors with 25+ years experience each!
