4. Ask how long the agent has been selling real estate and what professional organizations he or she belongs to.
As mentioned previously, the length of time an agent has been in the industry is not a sure-fire sign that they are a quality agent. An agent with two years of experience may be a top producer while an agent who has been in the business for more than a decade may only sell real estate part time. Also, take into account what professional organizations your potential agent belongs to. At a minimum, they should be a licensed real estate agent that belongs to the local real estate board and multiple listing service as well as the state and National Association of REALTORs. Additionally, look for agents who belong to local community groups and associations such as the chamber of commerce; they will have better networking abilities and can find more potential buyers for your home.
