Agent Responsibilities


 
 

Finding a good real estate agent is critical to enjoying a painless real estate transaction. Truth be told, almost no real estate transaction is perfect. There seems to almost always be some sort of obstacle – the sellers are going through a divorce, there is an encroachment issue, the repair person breaks something, the other agent goes AWOL, something happens…

 

And when that something happens, you need to know that your agent will be available and easy to reach, capable of handling the situation, and able to clearly navigate the best route to a successful close. That’s when you know you’re working with a good agent. Anyone can do the job when it’s easy.
