What Should I Look For In An Agent?

What Should I Look For In An Agent?

  • Meg Georkas

The team at Hutchinson & Harlow Real Estate – Armidale’s ONLY Sales Specialists have all the answers to your real estate questions.  When it comes to choosing a real estate agent, trust plays an important role in the relationship between you. Most successful sales are negotiated in an environment of trust.  Never underestimate the importance of trust in any negotiating situation.  After all the vendor is employing the agent and the agent must act in the best interests of the vendor. 

 Let’s answer some typical questions:

1. If you can’t sell my property, what will it cost me?

The HH team are upfront with the costs involved and you are given a written undertaking confirming what has been agreed.  Our comprehensive listing kit is a well written and easy to understand booklet setting out costs relating to your sale.  We also provide an informative guide to listing and marketing options.

2. Is your commission negotiable?

This is a good question.  You are looking to hire the agent who is acting in your best interests, not the interests of the purchaser.  If the agent is prepared to give away their own money (by dropping their commission) they may not hesitate when it comes to giving away yours in the negotiation of the sale of your property.  A higher sale price can be reflected by the quality of the agent you choose.  Instead of worrying about what the agent may cost, think about how much they can add to the successful sale.

3. Who will answer buyer questions?

Every person in the HH office has the knowledge and experience to answer buyer enquiries.  The entire team inspect your property so that any enquiry will be attended to immediately not placed on a phone note to be attended to ‘later’.

4. Market knowledge.

With over 25 years data in market trends and graphs demonstrating the median price Peter Georkas and the HH team can provide the tools to help you attain your asking price.
