How to Choose the Best Real Estate Agent for Selling Your Home

When it comes to selling your home, choosing the right real estate agent is crucial. A good agent can help you sell your home quickly and for the best possible price, while a bad one can leave you with an unsold property and wasted time and money.

Look for experience and expertise in your local market (Fargo-Moorhead)
It’s important to choose an agent who has a solid track record of success in your local market. Look for an agent who has experience selling homes in your neighborhood and who knows the local market trends and pricing.

Check the agent’s credentials and reputation
Make sure the agent you choose is licensed and in good standing with the real estate board. You can also check their reputation online by reading reviews and testimonials from past clients.

Look for a proactive and responsive agent
Choose an agent who is proactive and responsive. They should be able to provide you with regular updates on the progress of your sale and respond quickly to your questions and concerns.

Don’t be swayed by the highest listing price
While it may be tempting to choose an agent who promises the highest listing price, this can backfire if the price is unrealistic and your home sits on the market for too long. Choose an agent who can provide you with a realistic price based on market conditions and your home’s features and condition.

Trust your gut

Ultimately, trust your instincts when choosing a real estate agent. Choose someone who you feel comfortable working with and who you believe will have your best interests at heart.

 

In conclusion, choosing the best real estate agent for selling your home requires careful consideration and research. Look for an agent with experience and expertise in your local market, a good reputation, and a proactive and responsive approach. By following these tips, you can increase your chances of selling your home quickly and for the best possible price.

Jim and Shannon are professionals that genuinely care about their clients, not just making a sale. I wouldn't trust anyone else with our home buying and selling!

Highly recommend Shannon and Jim! They were there for us every step of the way, from giving us the best advice prior to getting our home on the market to make sure it was ready to go, to answering our questions at closing. Our house wasn’t even on the market for more than 48 hours and they made sure we knew all our options and got the best deal for us. Always quick response time and always available to us, which was important for us since this was our first time selling a home.

We have purchased several homes in our lives, but the experience was never as fun and easy as this (final) time with Shannon and Jim. Their response to our request for help with our real estate search was prompt... and off we went! They offered information and advice, with generosity and skill, and then supported us through the whole process. There is no other firm that can beat Modern Market Realtors and we highly recommend them. Jean and Dave Gau

If you are looking for a realtor, Jim and Shannon are the absolute BEST in town, or anywhere in my opinion. It doesn’t matter if it’s day or night or a holiday if you have a question for them or a concern they ALWAYS get back to you. They are also honest and transparent and have so much knowledge about the market. They worked their butts off to find us our dream home and they went completely above and beyond for us. Believe the five star reviews they are amazing people that quickly become friends. From start to finish Shannon will not miss a beat and she will work endlessly to make sure you have everything you need to feel comfortable. I cannot say enough about both of them. Absolutely amazing people and an incredible experience with both of them. We love you guys!

I've never left a review on anyone or anything, but I have to for these guys. They are beyond incredible! They made buying our house so seamless. They were there for us when we were worried about things, there for us when we needed to get things done, and there for us when we needed advice as well. They genuinely become your friends throughout your time with them because they are good people and care about you. I can't recommend there guys enough! 10/5 stars :)
