What You Should Expect From South Beach Real Estate Agents

March 27, 2017

When it comes to getting you into the house of your dreams, or selling the one you’re already in, a professional, reliable, honest, experienced, and knowledgeable real estate agent makes all of the difference. Selecting the right Miami agent will make the process quick and profitable, while hiring the wrong one could cost you time and money. So how do you know what to look for when it comes to hiring a real estate agent in South Beach? We’re so glad you asked.

Selling real estate is a job that requires impeccable communication skills. A real estate agent must be willing to listen to your needs and opinions, and be able to honestly articulate what he or she will be able to do for you. A successful real estate agent will let you do most of the talking, answer questions quickly and be willing to explain a concept or idea multiple ways until you really understand. They will refrain from interrupting you, will be easy to reach, and will provide you with regular updates on the status of your home.

Red flags:

  • Going multiple days without hearing from your real estate agent

  • Feeling like your opinions/wants/needs aren’t being heard or are not important

  • Constantly being shown homes that obviously don’t meet your criteria

  • Feeling like you have to repeat yourself over and over, or that the agent isn’t listening

A real estate agent that can get the job done will act in a professional manner. They will be organized, well put together and follow through with their promises. They should always present themselves in a neat and orderly way, and should never make you feel awkward or uncomfortable in their dress, mannerisms, or conversation.

Red flags:

  • Unprofessional attire or dress code

  • Inappropriate behavior or language that makes you uncomfortable

  • Consistently late or falling through on promises/deals/commitments

The right real estate agent for you will find the balance between urgency and aggressiveness. They will never make you feel pressured into making a decision, or make you feel bad or guilty for changing your mind, needing more time, etc. If you’re being pressed to make or accept an offer without having the chance to see other options, your agent may be teetering on the side of “too-aggressive.”

Red flags:

  • Not honoring your request for more time to think about your decision

  • Making you feel rushed into answering questions or making decisions

  • Reluctant to show you other options or negotiate

You want a real estate agent who knows what he or she is doing. When it comes to marketing, networking, and sales, you want an agent who is confident and has the ability to get the job done. A successful modern day real estate agent will use both traditional and creative techniques to help you find or sell your home.

Red flags:

  • Their website is a mess, or they don’t have one at all

  • The way they present other properties is less than impressive

  • You spend a lot of time feeling like no progress is being made.
