This should go without saying that anyone working in the real estate industry should be licensed realtor and also be a part of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). This means that there’s a code of conduct they need to follow which makes them trustable. The best way to verify their legibility is to ask to see their real estate license.

What’s Their Commission Fee?

One question that almost any person is always scared to hear the answer of is about their commission fee. Most people avoid working with realtors due to this sole reason. However, we believe in customer service and satisfaction which is why we try to offer you the best rate possible. The commission rate mostly relies on which one of our realtors you decide to work with.

Have They Previously Worked in Your Neighborhood?
