What to look for in a real estate agent

The spring market is here!  Soon you will be seeing many new properties coming on the market.  If you are thinking of listing your property now like many others there are a few things your should consider.  First, and most importantly, who will your real estate agent be?  Let The York Team help you make the right decision.  

One of the best ways to find a reliable and trust worthy real estate agent is to do your research.  Look at the past sales in your community and also past reviews on the real estate agent you might have in mind.  If an agent has done a fair amount of business in the area where you are selling they most likely have a strong network and know a good deal about the area.

What do you think is the most important qualities a real estate agent should have?  Based on what we have heard from previous and current clients it is COMMUNICATION!  The York Team has picked up many new clients due to the fact that their previous agents lacked greatly in telling them what is going on.  We pride ourselves on the fact that we keep our buyers and sellers in the loop at all times and they can readily reach all three of us (Ashley, Kristen, and Andy) at anytime of the day.  If you take a look at our past reviews you will see that all of our clients talk about how fast we respond and how accommodating we are.  We don't stop working at 5pm like some other agents.  There have been times we are up at 11pm writing up a contract and have even met clients at 1am at the office due to their work schedule!  Our clients are our number one priority in a deal and you will see that once you work with us.

Another important factor you should look for in an agent is their motivation.  Is this their hobby or full time job?  Some real estate agents take on this job more as a hobby or some extra money on the side.  Working with The York Team you will get two full time agents (Ashley and Kristen) and also Andy who works nights and weekends with us.  Since there are three of us we are pretty much always available is you have a last minute showing or a random question you need answered in the middle of the day.  All three of us treat each client like they are our only client as that is the way it should be.  We listen to our clients requests and try everything in our power to meet their needs.
