What to Look for in a North Atlanta Listing Agent

ID-10059943If you are like most homeowners, your house is your biggest investment and asset.  When it comes time to sell, getting the best price, in a timely manner, is usually a top priority. While selling a home is a complicated process, it can be relatively easy and stress free if you choose an experienced real estate agent.

If you’re looking for a north Atlanta real estate agent to sell your home, these are some important things to look for when choosing a listing agent:

  • Realtors- Not all real estate agents are Realtors, and the differences are substantial. As Realtors, we belong to the National Association of Realtors and follow the NAR’s Code of Ethics. We are required to maintain a higher level of knowledge about the ins and outs of real estate transactions and participate in ongoing education.  Agents who aren’t Realtors do not have to abide by these standards.
  • Brokerage companies- By choosing a Realtor associated with a brokerage firm like Keller Williams, you can be confident that your agent has the appropriate training, partnerships, and technology and marketing tools to provide you with the best possible service.  Keller Williams is now the #1 real estate company in North America and J.D. Power and Associates ranked Keller Williams “Highest in Customer Satisfaction” among both home buyers and home sellers.
  • Market knowledge- Real estate is an ever-changing industry, and what holds true in one city or neighborhood may not in another. That’s why it is so important to hire a real estate agent who has in-depth knowledge of the north Atlanta real estate market.  Intimate knowledge of the market includes knowing what homes feed into the best schools, where businesses are re-locationg and growing and knowing about local attractions/amenities.  These are just as important as knowing the average number of days on market it takes to sell a home and the sales to list price ratio in a given area.
