How to Compare Real Estate Agents?

Regardless of whether you’re a home buyer or seller it’s important to compare real estate agents which you’re dealing with.

Buying real estate is one of the biggest purchases most people will make in their lifetime, so it’s important that you carefully assess the real estate agent with a thorough comparison.

When buying a home, find out how good the real estate agent you are dealing with is as a negotiator. No one likes negotiating blind and it is good to know what some sort of form the real estate agent has. Try to glean some information from other real estate agents in the area, to see whether this real estate agent is worthy of your trust. Contact a local solicitor and see whether they can tell you anything about the real estate agent’s ethics.  Here is how compare real estate agents.

Ultimately you must decide the level of trust to place in the real estate agents which you compare.

Comparing real estate agents based on their ability to provide accurate property valuation home price guides before an auction is critical to assessing their local market knowledge.

Here’s how the top 10 real estate agents compared from Victoria and New South Wales last month.

    Isn’t one of your top 10 real estate agents going through court for massive under quoting? Do you make this stuff up or base it on actual facts? I deal with agents everyday and the honest reliable ones never show up in your lists, yet the dodgy ones that I won’t work with are trusted!
    Is this just paid advertising?

      Hi Bryan, Perhaps the real estate agent has decided to change their approach to real estate price quoting? None of the real estate agents have paid to appear on this list (or the real estate comparison bottom 10 list).
