With over 2,000 homes for sale in Gilbert, Arizona, it can be difficult to know who to trust to guide you through the process. Every Gilbert real estate agent and Realtor wants to be your representative, but it’s your ultimate decision on not only who you’ll choose to help you find your next home, but who you’ll trust to be on your side 100%. If you’re looking to buy a Gilbert home, there are quite a few little tricks that the sellers like to add into their contracts, and unless you have an agent 100% on your side you might get stuck with a bad deal.
Three Tips to Finding The Best Gilbert Realtor for You
There are three elements to finding the best Gilbert Realtor for you and your personality type. Everyone is different, which means that not every Gilbert Realtor is going to be the perfect fit for you. With that said, let’s look at the top three tips we’ve learned over the years for selecting the best real estate agent who can meet your needs.
Local Knowledge – This goes for every personality type in any area of Phoenix Metro. Your Realtor must absolutely know the area, know the agents in the area who have homes listed for sale, know the taxes, the loopholes, the residents, the schools, and everything in between. Gilbert is still a ‘small’ town, and it will definitely benefit you if you choose a Realtor who lives and works in Gilbert, instead of an outside real estate agent who simply claims to ‘know’ the area. Gilbert is a special place, and in order to live in the best neighborhoods for the best price, you’ll need a local expert.
Experience – As a local expert in real estate, your Gilbert agent needs to have plenty of experience as well. Experience not only brings knowledge and an appreciation for any unanticipated hiccups along the way, it also means that your Realtor might very well know the seller’s agent, which could help with getting that house of yours.
Personality – Your personality type must coincide with your Gilbert Realtor’s personality, or nothing will get accomplished. If I’ve learned one thing over the past 15 years as a Gilbert agent it’s that buyers (and sellers) and their Realtors must have a cohesive relationship; it just makes everything run smoother. If you know the type of personality that you can work with, and cannot work with, use that information when selecting an agent. Just because a Realtor might fulfill the above qualities doesn’t necessarily mean they are the right Gilbert agent for you.
