Pick a real estate agent - Look at their current listings
Check out an agent's listings online, says Brobeck. Two places to look are the agency's own site and Realtor.com, a
website that compiles properties in the Multiple Listing Service into a searchable online database.
Most buyers start their search on the Internet, and you want an agent who uses that tool effectively. "A key thing is an
attractive presentation on the Web," says Brobeck.
You also can look at how closely the agent's listings mirror the property you want to buy or sell. Are they in the same
area? Is the price range similar? And does the agent have enough listings to indicate a healthy business but not so many
that you'd just be a number?
