How do you research an agent or team before hiring them?
Before enlisting the services of an agent or team for one of the largest financial and emotional transactions of a lifetime, it is smart to do some research. The modern world of home buying and selling is digital, so a strong digital presence is an important indicator of a professional, experienced team or agent. Knowing how to optimize client results takes years of experience and a significant investment in technology, marketing, and human resources.
How to Analyze a Real Estate Agent or Team:
Start by simply typing their name or team name into Google to see what shows up, then dive deeper to explore their online presence.
- Do they have reviews?
Check out their reviews on Google, Facebook, Realtor, and Zillow.
Do their review pages have links to their website and social media platforms?
Do those links work?
- Is their website and technology up to speed?
Is it the typical cookie-cutter template provided by their broker with a clunky user experience?
Or is it fully custom, rich with local community content and information?
Is their website all about them or all about the buyer experience?
Is their website GPS enabled for easy mobile searching?
How many page views & buyer registrations do they get a month?
How large is their buyer database to share their new listings with?
- How is their social media presence?
Do they have a Facebook business page with reviews?
How many people have liked their Facebook page?
What about Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, and Pinterest?
