With this real estate market being a sellers’ market, it can be tempting to sign a contract with the first real estate agent that you meet, but that’s not always best for you. If you’re in the East Valley, take time to choose a Queen Creek real estate agent that has your best interests and goals in mind. If you can’t ask them questions or they don’t answer our questions to your liking, they may not be the right one for you.
How to Choose a Queen Creek Real Estate Agent
At Newman Realty, we pride ourselves on being a top-performing brokerage as well as active community ambassadors. When we list your home, we are marketing your home, not ourselves, but that’s not the case for all agents. Taking time to ask questions before you choose a Queek Creek real estate agent.
Are you a full-time real estate agent?
This is a great question to ask because it will give you an idea of their experience. With more than 75,000 real estate agents in Arizona, there are some that work it as a side gig, and others, like us, are in real estate fill-time. Those working the market full-time have the distinct advantage of seeing trends over time are making creative offers, and understanding the sellers’ market intimately. The market is moving fast so you want to choose a Queen Creek real estate agent that is well versed in every aspect.
Where is your agency focused?
Many agents will tell you that they work the entire Valley but that isn’t an advantage. In fact, we think it is a disadvantage because you cannot understand neighborhoods and developments across a wide area. It’s better to be specialized. We’re focused on Gilbert and Queen Creek because we live, work, and network in this area. As such, we are educated about not only what is available today, but what is coming soon. If you’re spread across the Valley, you cannot know the details of communities as well as an agent that is focused.
What is your real estate experience?
Ask the prospective agent how often they’ve dealt with someone in your particular situation. Have they worked with first-time buyers? Do they know where the best 55+ communities are? How well do they know the school districts? If they aren’t specialized in working with someone like you, then they may not be the right agent.
What is the marketing strategy to sell your home?
We believe your home sale strategy is as unique as you are. There is no one size fits all which is why we create a plan tailored to your needs and goals. If you’re talking to an agent who cannot articulate their marketing strategy, that should be a red flag for you. Maybe they don’t have the experience to sell your home. Maybe they don’t have an established process. Whatever the reason, it’s important they can tell you how they will sell your home.
At Newman Realty, we are dedicated to our clients and the real estate process. We want you to feel comfortable working with us and we want to deliver A+ service to all our clients. We encourage our prospective clients to ask questions and we will do the same. The more we get to know each other, the better the relationship will be moving forward. After all, we want you to sell your home or buy your dream home as much as you do!
If you’re ready to sell your current home and buy a new one, we are happy to talk to you and answer your questions. Call us today at 480-500-9888.
