Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
We chose Sigrid Cottrell based on a local recommendation and extensive knowledge of the Crested Butte, Colorado market as we were new to the area. She did not disappoint! Admittedly, we were not the easiest clients to work with as we had a very long "must have" list (to say the least). Sigrid went way above and beyond throughout the entire process, and that even included setting up short notice appointments with reputable contractors, which in itself was no easy feat. As we worked with her, it soon became apparent she was more concerned that we find the right property versus her profiting from her commission on the sale. Sigrid's professionalism, enthusiastic and positive attitude, as well as her flexibility made the process very enjoyable. She was dependable, detail oriented and her knowledge was reflected in all elements of the process. If we are ever in need of a Real Estate professional in the future, we wouldn't hesitate to call upon Sigrid Cottrell and highly recommend her to any one who is!aeromosa
