10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR

10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR®

Homeowners should interview a few potential REALTORS® before deciding on one to sell their home. Here are some smart questions to ask:

1.  How long have you been in the business?
A freshly-licensed REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up-to-date training; those in the business longer bring more practical experience to the table.

2.  What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?
A competent listing REALTOR® should hold a track record for negotiating sales prices that are very close to list prices.

3.  How will your marketing plan meet my needs?
Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often do you advertise? Will you show me a sample flyer? How do you market online?

4.  Will you provide references?
Ask if any of the references are related to the REALTOR®. Ask if you can call their references with additional questions.

5.  What separates you from your competition?
Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, professional, reliable, and able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances.

6.  May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?
A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, the listing agreement and seller disclosure.

7.  How will you help me find other professionals?
Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated”. It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors.

8.  How much do you charge?
You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. It may be a good idea to ask what their commission fee is for your reference.

9.  What kind of guarantee do you offer?
If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement?

10.  What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?
Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know--always.

        I started my Real Estate career a few years ago when I was at a crossroads with respect to a career.  After considering many options, I decided to adopt Real Estate as a profession.  My decision was largely influenced by the experience I had looking for a home for my wife and two small children. I had a Realtor showing me properties who didn’t understand my needs that centered on having a large yard for my children in a safe neighbourhood for them to grow up in.  While he showed me a couple of properties that were semi-suitable, I often questioned if he actually understood the nature of my requests and even the area demographics of areas in which he was showing me homes.  This experience with a Realtor who did not understand my concerns of safety for my growing family is what ultimately motivated me to adopt this career as a profession.  I continuously work to completely understand the concerns of my clients while accommodating their requests when I show and sell them properties that are perfected suited for them.
​        I have a Masters degree in Political Science as well as a Masters degree in Journalism. I have had the opportunity to write for various local newspapers. My extensive history and experience in radio broadcasting and print media has led to my current position as a radio host on a local talk radio station in Toronto.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids.
