Nowadays, good real estate agents can be difficult to find if you don’t know the qualities to look for. A chat with industry expert Haysha Deitsch reveals what you should be looking for when looking for the perfect agent.
The real estate market is time sensitive, so you need an agent who will let you know quickly where you stand with your current buying or selling situation so you can move on quickly to another property or potential buyer. Haysha Deitsch, Managing Director of Real Estate Acquisitions & Development at Merchants Hospitality, says that one of the biggest frustrations for people is a lack of communication from their agent. It’s important that agents stay in constant contact with their clients and customers. If you haven’t heard from your real estate agent in a few weeks, it’s time to find a new one. Even if no one has called for a showing of your home or your agent hasn’t found any homes that meet your requirements as a buyer, he or she should be touching base with you regularly to keep you up to date on the work being done on your behalf.
