Here's one way to check a realtor:
- Quality Service Certification® - Provides value and quality service for home buyers and sellers (http://www.qualityservice.org/default.aspx - broken link)

There are thousands to choose from. Interview several. The website for Wyatt Group is pretty but that means little.


NOTE TO REALTORS: Contact the O.P. via DM, not in the forum. Thank you!

Don't shy away from the "discount" or full service listing companies that will list your home for less than the typical commission structures of most real estate companies in the area.

Do your research on getting a full-service listing and make sure you interview the agent. A lot of really great, intelligent agents work for smaller companies b/c of flexibility in work schedules, work from home opportunities, and not having any desk/franchise fees for being part of a big company.

Plus, a lot of "smaller" companies will get your home marketed on the internet on many more sites than some of the big name, local real estate companies. Over 80% of buyers start looking for their next home on the internet. You want to ensure your agent will maximize your presence on the internet and market your home on as many sites as possible.

Believe it or not a friend of my family listed his million dollar home with a local big name company, big name agent. After 6 months of wondering why his home hadn't sold, I talked with him about how his home was being marketed and how his home was "different" and more desirable than the other similiar
like homes in his neighborhood. His agent told him he was on 5 web sites!!! Are you kidding me?

The name of the game in the current Denver market is finding an agent who will think outside of the box and will go above and beyond in working to sell your home. You need someone who will be creative and not rely on the "tradition" or "old" way of doing things. Buying and selling real estate has changed. Make sure you find an agent who is adapting to the industry.

Good luck!!!

Houses in HR are selling. The 'trick" is to price is well to begin with. Depending on the location and the condition, staging might help. A local Realtor will help with a pricing strategy. Once you have 15 showings or two weeks without a showing, and no offer you need to reevaluate the price.

A good Realtor will have a helpful booklet on getting your property in show home condition, will help you decide on a price, a marketing strategy...until you get an offer and then the fun begins...
