10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR

10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR®

Homeowners should interview a few potential REALTORS® before deciding on one to sell their home. Here are some smart questions to ask:

1.  How long have you been in the business?
A freshly-licensed REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up-to-date training; those in the business longer bring more practical experience to the table.

2.  What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?
A competent listing REALTOR® should hold a track record for negotiating sales prices that are very close to list prices.

3.  How will your marketing plan meet my needs?
Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often do you advertise? Will you show me a sample flyer? How do you market online?

4.  Will you provide references?
Ask if any of the references are related to the REALTOR®. Ask if you can call their references with additional questions.

5.  What separates you from your competition?
Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, professional, reliable, and able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances.

6.  May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?
A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, the listing agreement and seller disclosure.

7.  How will you help me find other professionals?
Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated”. It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors.

8.  How much do you charge?
You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. It may be a good idea to ask what their commission fee is for your reference.

9.  What kind of guarantee do you offer?
If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement?

10.  What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?
Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know--always.

We are a husband and wife team who have been in the real estate field for over 30 years. We have lived in the High Park area since the late 1980's and thus are well acquainted with this great part of Toronto.

 

We were sales agents with Sutton Group Old Mill since 2005 and we joined iPro Realty in 2020.  We wanted to leverage iPro's multiple office structure to grow our business in Dufferin County where we also own a country property.  We are working in the area from our country home in Mulmur Township and using the Shelbourne and Orangeville offices as our bases of operation.

 

Our love of Real Estate started in our early 20's when we bought and renovated our first home in the Dufferin/Bloor area.  We then caught the renovation bug and have since extensively renovated many homes, doing allot of the work ourselves. Our experience in these renovations has given us knowledge and expertise which we share with our clients.  We also have extensive knowledge and experience in property management, being successful landlords for over 30 years before becoming real estate agents.  Maria was a law clerk  in a real estate law firm, this background has given her extensive knowledge and understanding of all of the legal aspects in real estate transactions.

 

Over the years Joe has acquired great computer knowledge and skill which allows him to use modern day technology to aggressively market your home. In today's techno savy world, a strong web presence is essential in the successful marketing of your property.  We were one of the first agents in the West End to create custom websites for all our listings.  They are designed to showcase each individual property, giving much detail and information to potential buyers.  These custom websites are a very successful part of our marketing campaign and are designed for each and every listing, regardless of price.
