áiMk s, Bob Hefner Cx-TTi XSk REALTOR mamm estáte j tpr MATTERS W How to Choose a REALTOR When buying or selling a home, you need a skilled person to help. How can you find the best one for you? Someone to trust, whose ntegrity and ethics are beyond question. A person you can really communicate with, in the initial stages and later when n serious negotiations. Someone with expertise in the task. I suggest that you evalúate Realtors tor yourself- no one else can look out for your interests. Interview several agents before choosing one to work with exclusively. Some questions to ask: How long have you been in the business? Do you work full-time, year-round in real estáte? Are you a member of the Ann Arbor Area Board of Realtors ? (This group provides the only access to the Multiple Listing Service.) What is your specialty? What geographic area? Are there any kinds of transactions you prefer not to deal with? Do you make referrals to other Realtors who specialize in such matters? Is there teamwork in the company? Will other agents help in an emergency- when you are away for a few hours or days?. Do you inform each buyer of all appropirate homes, so that both buyer and seller have the best chance of connecting? Or are buyers pressured to select only from your company's listings (which makes more profit for the company, but doesn't serve the seller or the buyer)? Is there real communication with the agent? Does heshe really listen to you, or just give speeches? Is there empathy with your needs, wants, and lifestyle? Other considerations may be important to you. We can discuss them and decide whether to work with each other, , típSjHpSjy or perhaps I can refer you to a trusted colleague. Please do not hesitate to cali on me today. '-' sanx L 1
