If you don’t read this report you will almost certainly lose thousands when you sell your house…
Home sellers don’t know how to spot a good real estate agent
This is understandable considering that you will only trade one or two properties in your lifetime. Your home is probably your biggest asset. So, be careful whom you choose to sell it; one slip-up from a realtor will wipe thousands off your selling price.
Ask the right questions
Many home sellers ask the incorrect questions when they interview an agent. They ask questions such as for example “How much do you charge?” or “What’s the house worth?”. While these questions are essential, they should only be asked after the agent has told you what they’ll do for you and how they’ll allow you to get the best price.
This report is your guide to hiring a real estate agent. I’m going to show you how to spot and choose the best agent to sell your home. After all, I believe there’s no one better to sell your home than a highly skilled agent. The problem is that highly skilled agents are hard to find.

Check out your agent
It is a sad fact, but many people don’t check-out their agent until after they have signed using them – by then it’s too late. After you sign you’re stuck; you could be locked right into a ‘minimum 90 day’ contract.

Agents love to say all of them are different but preliminary research will prove most are the same. It’s the ‘cookie cutter’ approach with regards to selling your house – every property comes the same way.
What to look for whenever choosing an agent
In 2006 Neil Jenman (my Dad) was asked to provide a list of questions, comments, and hints to help home sellers choose a realtor for a TV show he was hosting. He called his set of questions and comments, GUIDE TO GRILLING AGENTS. Over the last few years I have given the guide to many home sellers. This report contains many of the questions and comments in his original guide.
What does an excellent agent look like?
Most agents will be well dressed, on time, and prepared. However the best real estate agents will be the ones who put your interests first. They will offer solutions that suit you first, not them.
Agents who require money to advertise your home should rarely be hired. In the end, if advertising was the only real reason your house sold why do you need a real estate agent?
Questions are the answer
Sometimes the answer to 1 good question offers you the confidence you have to hire the best agent to sell your house. Good questions do the hard work for you. Before you jump in and begin grilling real estate agents, have a step back.
Put your house buyer shoes on. And begin with a mystery shop…
Department stores do it, why shouldn’t you? Utilize the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the poor agents. Why bother interviewing a real estate agent who doesn’t bother to come back buyer’s calls? Start with a contact. Approximately half of all buyer enquiry arrives via email.
If you distribute 10 emails to 10 local real estate agents, I can almost guarantee that you’ll not receive 10 replies. If only 5 reply, you then have just saved yourself having to interview 5 agents. Include your contact number in your email. Do they call you back? Or do they just email a typical response? A realtor who follows up with a call includes a much better chance of ‘closing a sale’ than a realtor who sends a standard reply.
