12 Questions to ask your Ottawa REALTOR® before you hire them

When interviewing a REALTOR® to handle your largest financial transaction, you deserve the best. Here are The Tulip Team’s 12 Question to ask any potential REALTOR®, to ensure that you are getting the best service.

1. Do you work as a Full-Time REALTOR®?
2. How long have you been selling Real Estate?
3. Do you work as an independent agent, or as part of a team? If you’re part of a team; what do you do, and what do the other team members do?
4. What is your expertise in this neighbourhood, or this type of house?
5. How many qualified buyers are you / your team working with?
6. What is your track record of selling homes? How long does it take, and how much do you sell for, compared to the listing price?
7. Can you explain your marketing plan? Specifically how will it help sell this house?
8. In what ways do you encourage other REALTORS® to show my house to their buyers, and encourage them to bring an offer?
9. How will you keep me informed on the status of your marketing, feedback from showings, potential offers, and what buyers and other REALTORS® are saying about this house?
10. How do you help people navigate a complicated market like this?
11. Can you offer references?
12. What can I do to make sure I get the best price for this house?

Always be sure that any REALTOR® you are interviewing can provide examples, or back to any and all statements that they make. Don’t accept anyone who falls short, can’t substantiate, or waffles in any way. You deserve the best representation for your largest financial transaction.
