FIND A GOOD REAL ESTATE AGENT

Consider interviewing agents and asking for recommendations from nearby friends or family to find someone who is a good fit. It may be difficult to back out after signing a contract with an agent. Monica Ajer, a real estate agent in Oakland, California, says it is especially important to work with an agent who knows how to use online marketing, as many buyers now start their searches online.
