How to find the right realtor for you

How many realtors have you come across in the last week? That may sound like an odd question, but consider it for a second. We are bombarded by advertising every day, especially in major cities such as Toronto. How many faces have you seen plastered on bus stops with the words “award winning” beneath them? If you’re like me, you’ve stopped at some point and thought to yourself, “who’s giving out all of these awards, and why does it seem like everyone has them?”

I don’t mean to dismiss the work of realtors, or their advertising dollars. Quite the opposite. I want to shine a light on the hard work of truly great realtors, and help you to identify whether your realtor is the right fit for you.

I’ve been fortunate to work with several realtors in my last six years in this industry that define what it should be to call yourself a realtor. I’m going to share some of the lessons they taught me, because many people don’t know what to look for when considering a partner for buying or selling their property. The best realtors don’t necessarily have a metal business card, or headshots on a black background. So here are a few questions to ask yourself when considering whether a realtor might be a good fit for you.
