  Selecting a Realtor  

Often Realtors market themselves better than they do your home.  Our goal is to bypass the Realtor’s slogans, salesy promises, & self-proclaimed ‘top-producer’ status, to give you actual data directly from the Multiple Listing Service.

 
             
The Ratings Data          
The above information is directly from the North Texas Multiple Listing Service, Texas Real Estate Commission, and the Texas Association of Realtors® databases.  MLSRatings does not sell zip codes or areas to Realtors.  All Realtors are included in the query to ensure unbiased results.  
             
Fees & Commissions          
While Realtor fees are not dictated by a state or local agency, the industry standard is that all commissions are paid by the seller.  The buyer’s agent and listing agent split the commission which the seller has previously agreed to pay.  The result is having a professional represent ONLY his/her interest throughout the process at no cost.  
        • A Buyer’s Representation Agreement is common for some Realtors to ask a buyer to sign.  A buyer should read it carefully as to the obligations should he decide to fire the agent or not purchase a home.  
         • A buyer should also pay close attention to how a buyer’s agent suggests handling representing both the buyer and seller – if that Realtor does not have listings.  
             
  What’s Important to you in a Buyer’s Agent?  

The above Realtors are statistically the best for your area of interest.  Additional characteristics you may want to consider are:

 
             
1. Communication          
  At certain points in the process, you will need open and quick communication with your agent.  Making sure you and your agent have the right type (text, email, phone, etc) of communication is helpful to the logistics and may also reduce your stress during the process.  
             
2. Listening to your Needs:        
  As a whole, Realtors have a reputation of being pushy salespeople.  A good buyer’s agent should be able to focus on what you are looking for in a home as well as address areas of concern you have about the process, THEN act as more of a consultant through the buying process.  
             
3. Experience & Negotiating Skills          
  The above data is helpful, but there may be specific experience you would like your Realtor to have.  Simply asking them about such experience should be most efficient.  Negotiating skills typically come with time in the business as well as number of transactions, but is difficult to quantify prior to selecting an agent.  
             
4. Follow Through        
  Follow-Through is also difficult to measure prior to selecting a Realtor.  Just as with the overall selection of a Realtor, it may come down with whom you are most comfortable and confident.
