When you hire a real estate agent to help you sell your home, you have certain expectations of what your agent will do for you. Most people expect their agents to:
- Give them advice about updates or repairs that will make their home more attractive
- Help them set a price for their home
- Market their home so it receives as much exposure to potential buyers as possible
- Schedule showings with potential buyers
- Advise them as they negotiate offers
- Handle all the required paperwork
That’s a pretty impressive list of duties. Of course, the value comes in how well the agent executes these duties. It’s one thing to stick a sign in your yard and call it marketing, and it’s a completely different thing to plant that sign, post your home on the internet with photos and a video tour, and contact other agents with clients looking for homes like yours.

Super-serve from the start
Your agent’s goal should be to over-serve you, starting with the first contact. If you’re waiting days to hear back from an agent, you’re waiting too long. An agent who wants your business will return your call immediately—within minutes if possible!
Commit for the long haul
Even if you’re not ready to put your home on the market right away, your agent should be available to offer advice and answer questions as you prepare for the process. A trustworthy agent isn’t looking for a quick commission check; they will work with each client with a long-term view.
Speak from experience
Experience is the hallmark of an excellent real estate agent. Your agent needs at least five years of experience in real estate, but 10 years or more is preferable. They must also close on a minimum of 40 home transactions per year. With that kind of experience and performance, you can feel confident in relying on your agent’s advice.
