Below are some questions you will want to ask you prospective real estate broker or agent:

  • How long have you been selling real estate? An agent with many years in the real estate business under their belt will not get rattled if problems occur during the buying or selling process. Because real estate is commission-based, and an agent has to perform to survive, it will be a great sign the agent provides excellent service if their career has longevity.
  • How many homes have you sold/closed during your career ? This will tell you the agent’s success rate in the marketplace. Some agents work primarily with buyers or sellers, so you’ll want to know if the particular agent is right for you. If selling, one home while purchase another, having the same agent working on both transactions will make the process smoother.
  • What is your average number of clients at any time ? The number of clients the real estate agent is currently working with will have an impact on how much time, attention and effort he / she has to give to you.
  • Do you work with a team? It’s important to know that the agent has back up and your transaction will be covered in the event of an emergency. Also team efforts are often more smooth and you'll want to know if you'll meet with other team members during the process.
  • What area(s) of the Poconos do you cover? Some real estate agents are community experts, while others cover the entire Poconos.
  • What is your marketing and/or negotiation strategy? Whether a buyer or seller, you will want to know how the agent plans to market your home. Some have a small marketing footprint with just using the MLS ... Others have multiple websites, print strategies, the MLS and signs. And whether you're buying or selling, you’ll want to know the agent has experience in negotiating through many scenarios with skills to obtain the best deal for you.
  • What type of communication and how often should I expect to hear from you? How and how often you'll hear from the agent and how to contact the agent at any time along with the best means of communication for all of the involved parties, should be established.
