Real estate agents can be found through a variety of different companies. It's important to shop around and find the right agent for you, it's probably a guarantee that someone you know has had extensive experience dealing with agents or has had to buy or sell a house, ask around and get a grasp for the kind of service that agents have offered to individuals around you.

As you begin the process of looking for a real estate agent, it's crucial to pay attention to their personal qualities. These personal qualities tell a story and may hint to the kind of customer-agent relationship they develop. The stress of buying or selling a house is apparent enough; nobody needs the extra hassle of poor communication skills or the stress of never hearing back from your agent. Your agent should be licensed and should be able to tell you about their previous experience and how much to expect out of a certain sale. Your agent should be familiar with the local market and experienced in dealing with clients around the area. Truthfulness and credibility go a long way in real estate, and sometimes real estate agents aren't always working with your best interests in mind. That's why it's tremendously important to ask around a get an idea of who you're working with.

An assertive agent will have the negotiating skills that are necessary so you get the right deal. Finally make sure you talk to your agent about how much they work for and how much commission will be. Working out the details before hand help eliminate issues later on.
