As an investor, you know how important it is to have a team of professionals by your side.

But how, exactly, do you find a Realtor® who understands how to sell investment properties and who can market aggressively to get yours sold?

How to Interview Top Producer Real Estate Agents

Let’s face it: Top producers aren’t sitting around waiting for you to call and interview them. They’re also not likely to chase your business.

They’re top producers for a reason, and that means if you want to work with them, you’ll have to make some time to conduct some interviews.

Here’s what you ask:

  • What’s your average list-price-to-sales-price ratio? Every market is different, so take that into consideration (some of the suburbs of Atlanta are prime examples of this). A good agent will have a record of negotiating sales prices that are close to list prices, though.
  • What can you do to put this house in front of the right buyers? You’ll need to know about how they’ll market, where and how often they advertise, and how they attract buyers online.
  • Can I see your references? (You can skip this one if the agent has several online reviews, which you can sift through to get the information you need.)
  • Do you offer a guarantee? Find out whether there’s something you can do if you’re not happy with the way things are working out, and determine what the agent’s company’s policy is about cancelling agreements.
