There are many ways to find an agent. Including referrals from people you know can be one of the best ways to find a real estate agent.

Take your time and put some thought into selecting an agent. You may talk with two or three before you find one that you want to work with. It’s important that you feel comfortable with your agent since they’ll be working closely with you to find a house that meets your needs. With that in mind, before you sign an exclusive contract, you might want to ask yourself these questions:
- Is the agent easily accessible, and does he return your calls?
- When the agent takes you to look at houses, does he seem to match what you’re looking for?
- Does the agent explain things in a way you can understand, including different financing options?
