When it comes to selling your home, the process can feel daunting and time-consuming. However, with the right estate agent, that’s reliable and genuinely passionate about every step of the selling process, can ensure a hassle-free property selling process. Ensuring you choose someone that is switched on to your specific requirements, and has your best interests at heart, is absolutely vital when selecting an estate agent to help sell your property. As a leading estate agent and letting company, we want to help you know what to look out for when it comes to selecting a successful and knowledgeable estate agent. 

1. Credentials

It’s within your rights to inquire about an estate agent’s industry credentials. Ensuring they are experienced and qualified for the job will mean you can put 100% trust in your selected estate agent. All of our estate agents are qualified, experienced and will be more than happy to provide you with the evidence to ensure you have maximum peace of mind. We hire estate agents that have an undeniable level of professionalism, and an unmatched level of enthusiasm when it comes to getting to know the needs of their clients, and tailoring services to meet expectations. 

2. Recommendations 

With an endless range of estate agents to choose from, who all look ideal on paper, the process can feel like an extra chore. However, Our team can recommend one of our estate agents that matches your expectations, and has the expert knowledge of your local area in terms of property value and other useful market insight. This way, you can build a professional relationship with your appointed estate agent that will make the whole process a lot more smooth sailing. 

3. Explore the field

You don’t have to go with the first estate agent appointed to you. If the professional chemistry just isn’t there, or you feel like you need somebody with a little more experience, then it’s better to speak up and voice your needs. This way, we will be able to help you choose an estate agent that fits your brief and ensures your selling process is as hassle-free as possible. You can speak to several estate agents, making a judgement based on some personal questions you devise before each meeting or phone call. This way you’ll know if they will be a good fit for you on a personal level. You’ll want to opt for an estate agent that has sold similar sized properties, and has a good local knowledge that can help you find your next property. 

4. Monitor communication

An Estate Agent should be involved at every point of the process. Part of the job is being on call for homeowners at any given moment (within reason, of course). Regular phone check ins and an honest and open line of communication, are signs of a reputable and successful estate agent that centres your needs. Using a single estate agent can make your life a lot easier. Therefore, selecting the right one that communicates with you, and works hard to make even the most boring property jargon a lot clearer, should be where your final decision lands. 

5. Draw up your brief before searching

A number of factors will affect the suitability of an estate agent that takes you on as a close client. You may have a unique property that needs a specific eye for detail, or you’re needing to sell up fast if relocating for a dream job. Whatever your situation, it’s important to have this clearly outlined on paper, which you can make clear in initial conversations with estate agents. Understanding your own needs, so you can go into the process with a clear vision, is the ultimate way to hit the ground running. This way an estate agent can judge if they’re the right fit, and if not, can recommend another suitable candidate. 

Whoever you decide to choose when selecting an estate agent, ensuring they understand your needs, and have demonstrable experience selling similar properties are all vital things to look out for. At 4 sale, our team of estate agents are some of the top-ranking in the industry. We hand select every team member, and ensure they are trained to our standards, ensuring you’ll be in safe hands from the get-go of the buying and selling process.
