Why should I list my home with you and not some other agent?


With literally thousands of real estate agents in the Greater Houston Area to choose from, it's important to understand that they are not all the same and do not all offer the same services or charge the same fees. Not all real estate agents are as experienced or knowledgeable as others and some may just have a personality that doesn't fit well with yours. Therefore, when it's time to sell your home, be sure to interview at least 3 agents from different agencies and ask a lot of questions. If they pressure you to list with them that day and not talk to other agents, that should tell you something. If they won't put their commissions or fees in writing, that should tell you something. If they don't know anything about the previous home sales in your neighborhood, that should tell you something. If they bad mouth other agencies or agents, that should tell you something. If they are not using the latest tools and technology the industry has to offer, that should tell you something.
