It is generally a good idea to start by asking family and friends if they can recommend an agent. Compile a list of several
brokers in your area and talk to each before choosing one. Look for an agent who listens well, understands your needs, and whose judgment you trust. The ideal agent knows the local area well and has resources and contacts to help you in your search. Overall, you want to choose an agent that you feel comfortable
with, and one that can provide all the knowledge and services you need.
