How to choose an agent.
After thirty years in Real Estate, Harcourts South Island Regional Manager, Jim Davis has learned a thing or two about what makes a great and successful vendor / seller relationship.
With so many options for selling your house from small independents to larger franchise companies, and just as many personalities of agents, it can be difficult knowing what to look for to ensure a successful sale.
According to Jim, it’s all about finding the right fit for you; ‘You should choose a person you feel the most comfortable dealing with’. Key traits to look out for include passion and life for the industry, someone who keeps up with the market and ultimately, knows what they are doing to get you the best result.
With over 500 agents in Christchurch and a large focus on investment in training and tools, it’s fair to say that Harcourts has quite a few of these people working in the city. So much so, that if you don’t click with your first choice, it may be well worth your time chatting to another Harcourts agent.
Ultimately, choose an agent who fits your personality, who understands you and who you believe can do the best job for you.
