Sell your home and enjoy a tremendous real estate customer experience with Seeff. We advise on what to keep in mind when you're choosing a real estate agent.
You knew, didn’t you? The moment that real estate agent shook your hand or greeted you (or didn’t), you knew if it was a good fit or not. Did you consider if this was the person you wanted to walk you through the process of selling your house: the payment negotiations, filling in forms, the multiple home showings.
Whether you're selling or buying a house, you deserve a fantastic real estate customer experience. That will depend on your agent, so consider the following when choosing a real estate agent.

A great customer experience must include transparency. It’s fundamental to any relationship, whether between friends, family, or co-workers.
But when you partner with a transparent and trustworthy real estate agent, you also avoid future problems that might arise from your agent ignoring home flaws or misleading you.
Selling a house doesn’t need to be strictly business. How much easier would the process be if your real estate agent had your best interests at heart and you understood each other?
A real estate agent who goes the extra mile, who’s kind and engaging without compromising professionalism - that’s the dream for any seller.
“Successful agents tend to be those who have been doing the job for 6-7 years and more,” says Graham White, managing director for Seeff North Coast.
Real estate agents who've worked in this job for years have built up expertise as they've watched the property market change and learnt to adapt to these changes. This gives them insights and hands-on knowledge that you can access if you choose them.
Consider the following when choosing a real estate agent:
Have you seen their Sold boards around your neighbourhood? Have they been highly recommended online or by someone you know? Do they operate specifically in your area? Because according to Seeff’s data, area agents sell more than 90% of sole mandate properties.
Your real estate agent should understand property market trends and buyers’ behaviours. Then they’ll inspect your house through that lens and help you to market it successfully.
Based on their understanding of trends and buyer behaviours, your agent will know if you’re likely to receive your asking price and be able to recommend what you can do to increase the appeal of your house.
When you pick a real estate agent who is transparent, who goes the extra mile, and who is an expert in the world of real estate, the experience of selling your home is infinitely more accessible and more enjoyable.
