Asking these questions will save you time and money in the long run:

  1. How long have you been selling real estate? Have you received any disciplinary actions or complaints during this time?
  2. What is the percent of Sellers compared to Buyers that you serve?
  3. May I see all of the paperwork that you are going to ask me to sign?
  4. Can we cancel the listing if we are not happy?
  5. Do you follow-up on all showings on the house and report the comments back to me?
  6. Will you personally handle contracts that are presented and handle all of the negotiations?
  7. Do you have a web site? What SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and advertising do you use on your site to market homes?
  8. How much of your business is based on referrals and/or past clients?
  9. How much time and money do you invest each month in professional training?
  10. Why should I list with you rather than another REALTOR®?
