On the latest episode of 'Open House with Team Reba', Reba and Eric discuss setting expectations in real estate transactions, and the quality of agents.
In Washington State there are approx. 30,000 real estate agents. Of them, only a small percentage complete more than 2 transactions per year. What that means is that of those agents who are not selling often, they are more likely to be out of the loop when it comes to new rules, regulations, forms, financing, and changes in the market.
Reba and Eric discuss an actual current transaction where the buyer's earnest money may be put at risk unknowingly by the buyer's agent, for lack of knowing about a particular form.
If your expectation is to work with an agent who is up to date on all industry changes, then you want to work with an agent who is in the top tier of selling (such as Team Reba with over 20 transactions in 2019 alone), and who has a proven record of success and great reviews from former clients.
Be sure to always ask your potential agent for a list of previous successful sales, and their latest reviews. Ours are all listed on TeamReba.com and on our Zillow Profile.
