23 Questions Sellers Must Ask When Interviewing A Realtor

parkland parrot real estate team
When interviewing any agent to list your home, it is wise to ask questions that will reveal the agent’s ability to successfully accomplish your real estate goals.  Before our team goes on a listing appointment, we email or drop-off a Realtor-Questionnaire that ALL sellers should ask when interviewing the right agent for the job of selling their home.

No matter if the agent is your friend or even an agent that you worked with in the past,  the current market is unlike any other!  As a result, the older agent that sold homes at the height of the market might not truly be the best agent for the job.   Read on …

Below is a list of suggested questions:

  1. How long have you been selling real estate?
  2. Are you a full-time agent?
  3. How many homes have you sold this year?
