Look for a Realtor®, an agent who belongs to the NAR (National Association of Realtors). They are bound by a standard of ethics that prescribes acceptable actions to all parties. Not all agents are members.
Check to see if the agent has taken the time to be trained as a specialist in any area. And what other skills have they acquired in life.
Linda Walters, owner and broker of Sage Realty, has obtained the designations of ABR®, ePRO®, ALHS® and
SRES® in addition to being a licensed
attorney. A lifetime of negotiating and
solving complex problems
comes in useful.
Who do they represent?
Only a few agents refuse to represent both buyer and seller on a transaction. Even fewer make it their policy to sign a contract with fiduciary duties when they represent buyers. Look for an agent that represents you, the home buyer.
With Sage Realty there is never
a conflict of interest. You are our first and only priority.
Recognized by Clients
If you want an agent who has been recognized by actual clients, ask for references. Maybe look for one who has earned the “5 Star Realtor” award. These agents have been reviewed by actual clients to earn the award. They are listed each year in the September issue of Philadelphia Magazine.
For seven years in a row, Linda Walters has been awarded Philadelphia Magazine’s “5 Star Realtor” status. There is no better proof of the quality of an agent than unsolicited praise from past satisfied clients. Particularly in the highly stressful and issue-laden area of residential real estate.
