How to Find the Perfect Hilton Head Realtor

Posted by Randy Smith on Monday, February 22nd, 2016 at 12:39pm.

When it comes to finding the perfect Hilton Head homes for sale for you and your family you’ll want to have a real estate agent in your corner that puts you first. Someone just like Randy Smith of Randy’s Real Estate. Finding the right agent is kind of like finding the perfect partner. You might need to go on a few “dates” before things “click” with the perfect one for you. Following are some guidelines for what to look for.

Personality really does matter.

Nobody wants a Realtor that has no personality or is incredibly negative. Look for someone that is upbeat and cheerful who will put your needs first. Someone that guides you realistically through the process will do you more good in the long run than an agent you seldom if ever hear from.

It’s a process so have fun with it.

House hunting takes some time. It can be fun or it can be mundane, almost like a job you don’t like to go to every day. Use this time with your Realtor to narrow down what you’re looking for while learning about new neighborhoods and new decorating ideas. And, yes, have fun with it!

Trust Your Gut

You want to use a Realtor that you can fully trust. One that you know will work for your benefit. Listen to your gut feelings about this person when you meet. If you have any doubts at all, move on to find another.

It’s a commitment, sort of.

You want to use a Realtor that will commit to being with you for the long haul, however long that is. Finding a house doesn’t happen overnight, although it could. If you get the sense the Realtor you just met is really busy, almost too busy, in fact, keep looking. You shouldn’t have to stand in line, waiting around, to get in touch with your agent. You want someone who is accessible.

Full time or no time

Use a real estate agent that works in real estate full time as opposed to moonlighting at it as a second source of income. You want someone that is thoroughly networked in their community and can make solid recommendations when it comes to lenders, attorneys, inspectors, and other home service providers.

No long distance relationships.

Use a real estate agent that is local to the community you want to purchase a home in; ideally someone that both lives and works there. You can’t expect an agent that lives and works in a different county to know much about the county you’re moving to. For the best advice, use someone local.
