Hi, I have been in Colorado (Westminster/Broomfield) for 12 yrs. but am ready to move back home close to family.

I am needing some advice as to how to finding an agent. Is there a way to look up what agencies or agents have sold "X" amount of homes in an area?

Thanks any advice would be appreciated.

Sorry to hear you are moving , but what I would do is to find a realtor that specializes in the area you live at. That realtor will do a market analysis in the area and market your home properly and get'er sold!!

I talked to realtors that don’t know the area and tell me I can put my home for sale between $250K to $325k.

I can tell you I will not be hiring that goober!

Default price info

Hi - When helping my seller clients, I tell them it's crucial to do a market analysis of homes sold in your neighborhood within the past 1-3 months. Some agents make the mistake of recommending you price based at where others are listed. Good luck.

A decent market analysis depends first on the person pulling the data. If you live in an area where the houses are similar it is probably not to difficult to pull good data that is in close proximity to your property.

If you live in area where your place is different, you might have to look farther away and over a longer period of time say 6 months, to get a good data set.

Knowing a good asking price will help get showings; marketing helps get showings - look at the company's web sites, brokers web sites - ask where they advertise, and how often. Do they have designations, and assistant, who manages their files, do they do online transaction management, what is the list to sell ratio, how many days on market is average for my neighborhood, what is my absorption rate, what is your average days on market, what is your feedback policy, how do you handle showings, how long does it take you to return phone calls, emails, text msgs, when is your next vacation, what was the last real estate class you took.....
