How to Hire a Great Real Estate Broker

How to choose a great real estate broker portland oregon

Whether you’re a first time home buyer or a seasoned real estate investor flipping a property, hiring a great real estate broker can make all the difference when it comes to maximizing value and making the right real estate deal. 

Buying and selling property is a complicated exercise that involves both business and emotion.  It’s never just a matter of money, and it’s never all about dreams.  A great real estate broker understands these often competing aspects and will bring a level of expertise, professionalism and balance to your real estate transaction.  When you need hard market data or advice on how to prepare your property for market, what you should offer on a property, or how you should counter, your realtor should be at the ready.  Likewise, when you need an experienced, steady hand during the emotional ups and downs of buying or selling a property, your agent should be there for you.

Staying Safe While Showing Property

As people go about their every day lives, it is common to forget the potential dangers that surround us. Recent tragedies serve as a reminder to the real estate community that the career can also come with dangerous consequences, and real estate professionals must remain mindful of their safety at all times.

In October of 2014, Beverly Carter, a 49-year-old wife and real estate agent was found murdered in a shallow, makeshift grave near Little Rock Arkansas. Although Carter took many standard safety measures including leaving her purse in the car to avoid being a victim of theft and informing her husband of her location, she was still a target. Her killer’s cold-blooded response to the murder, “She was just a woman who worked alone -- a rich broker.”
