10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR

10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR®

Homeowners should interview a few potential REALTORS® before deciding on one to sell their home. Here are some smart questions to ask:

1.  How long have you been in the business?
A freshly-licensed REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up-to-date training; those in the business longer bring more practical experience to the table.

2.  What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?
A competent listing REALTOR® should hold a track record for negotiating sales prices that are very close to list prices.

3.  How will your marketing plan meet my needs?
Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often do you advertise? Will you show me a sample flyer? How do you market online?

4.  Will you provide references?
Ask if any of the references are related to the REALTOR®. Ask if you can call their references with additional questions.

5.  What separates you from your competition?
Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, professional, reliable, and able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances.

6.  May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?
A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, the listing agreement and seller disclosure.

7.  How will you help me find other professionals?
Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated”. It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors.

8.  How much do you charge?
You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. It may be a good idea to ask what their commission fee is for your reference.

9.  What kind of guarantee do you offer?
If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement?

10.  What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?
Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know--always.

“Trust me to take care of your real estate needs.”

I’ve been a self-employed real estate professional now for over a decade, helping my clients buy and sell hundreds of homes all across the GTA and points beyond.  For many of my clients, I helped them rent their first apartment, buy and sell their starter home, and buy their dream home. 

My clients describe me as knowledgeable, determined and very good at helping them achieve great results – I take their trust very seriously.

As a wife and mother of two small children, I know how important the right home is to the fabric of the family, and it thrills me to work with my clients to find them just the right home. 

The GTA is one of the world’s hottest real estate markets, which brings exciting opportunities as well as unique risks - I have surrounded myself with industry experts, including legal and financial, I stay up-to-date on the relevant issues and regularly take industry courses in order to best serve my clients.  Real estate is a business I take very seriously. 

I’m a good listener – it's important we work together to clearly identify your unique goals - whether it is a single property purchase or for investors working in larger buying pools. 


"I believe that with hard work, comes great rewards. I am steadfastly there for my clients and know that my efforts will lead them to a successful transaction. Whether it is the nuances of residential sales, pre-construction condominium sales, or the specialized field of condo assignments, I'm on top of the development. Don't allow a chance to be part of your buying strategy. Let's work together and achieve the unachievable!"
