An Often Overlooked Key To Choosing An Agent

An Often Overlooked Key To Choosing An Agent

One of the most important yet seldom discussed factors that should rate near the top of your list of requirements for a St. Cloud agent is how comfortable you feel in conversation with him or her. What might sound like New Age feel-goodery is actually a crucial ingredient in the buying and selling of St. Cloud homes.

Selecting a real estate agent is more than a personnel decision—it also becomes a pivotal team-building exercise.

 Professional qualifications necessarily come first. In addition to being licensed to carry out the duties and obligations required by the Minnesota authorities, the agent you tap should be able to point to a successful track record of accomplishment in St. Cloud as well as being demonstrably competent in the use of the latest tools in the virtual (as well as actual) real estate marketing arenas. You’ll also be looking for a full-time professional—someone whose response time is measured in hours rather than days.

But added to those professional credentials are some often-overlooked reasons why you should also select a person who is easy to talk to. Whether you are enlisting your St. Cloud agent to help you buy or sell, success is much more likely to follow when the channels of communications open effortlessly—and stay that way.

If you are looking to sell, the more broadly informed your agent is, the more competent that agent will be when escorting prospects around your property. A stock of amusing and informative anecdotes—the stray bits and pieces that go with living in a place—will only be available to your agent if you’ve been comfortable swapping tales during strolls around the home. Experienced agents know that buyers automatically sense when the agent in charge is a relative stranger to the property—a setup that’s antithetical to having prospective buyers feel they can trust what they are being shown and told.   

 For buyers, too, free and open communication with your agent is invaluable for tagging all the St. Cloud homes that should be considered and visited—and those that needn’t be. The best St. Cloud agents not only have an encyclopedic knowledge of all current St. Cloud listings—in short order, they also know their client.

Needless to say, I strive to be the St. Cloud Realtor® who qualifies on all counts. I hope you’ll give me a call to get communications flowing!
