WHY YOU NEED A REAL ESTATE AGENT
'A Real Estate Agent isn't necessary anymore. I could list and sell my home on my own!'
We hear this more and more. We understand why someone would feel this way but please know this couldn't be further from the truth. The RIGHT agents provide you protection that simply cannot be replicated when representing yourself. But we totally get the sentiment. We have our own experiences dealing with the Riff-Raff that's out there that simply sees you as a commission. You're tired of dealing with pushy realtors who don't know what they are doing. Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions you'll make in your life, and it's stressful enough without having to deal with someone who doesn't know what they are doing. The problem is you never know until it's too late!

Things to know when choosing an Ask Local Real Estate Agent
How long have they been operating their business successfully? 'Successfully' being the key word here. Just because they've been practicing all of time doesn't equate to being great at what they do. All our agents on network have a wealth of experience and experti
Request a copy of customer reviews and be sure to read them. You can learn a lot more than you'd think digging in here. Closed clients typically leave reviews in 2 situations... They're either really impressed, or really upset! You can learn from both. We make it easy by providing you their reviews right on their page
There is no shame in asking for the bottom line.All our teams have their own value adds and it's never been easier to compare the differences. The best part is you don't have to hear/deal with the sales pitch. Interview and engage each from the comfort of your couch. You'll know which team is right for you. Know that each come with the best tools the industry has to offer that will allow them to leverage the best deal possible for you and yours
Requesting their most recent sales is highly recommended.This will give you a much better feel for the types of homes and clientele the agents typically serve. If selling your home, you should look at the average day on market for their most recent listing along with initial list price and compare to the actual sales price
Who pays for the Real Estate Agents commission?The seller of the home has to pay the entirety of the agent’s commission. Sellers get the raw end of the deal here but make out on their next purchase. A big pay it forward campaign! Just know that our agents have a vast network of buyers which can be quite advantageous as to the cost to the seller should Ask Local, or the team, brings buyer to your listing. Bottom line... You SAVE with reduced commission agreements
