Lisa has been our real estate agent for our last few times. Lisa is knowledgeable, understanding, honest, fun and extremely thorough. On our most recent transaction, we relocated before our home went on the market. We were confident from previous experience that Lisa would take care of everything and communicate throughout the process. We highly recommend Lisa!

I am so impressed with the property management connection, especially The president Justin Schaller. He manages my ocean front condo and has placed the best tenant and handles everything for me so I can focus on my life and not worry about my property! He is very thorough and professional, he goes above and beyond to do the job right. He covers everything from A to Z and I will be entrusting my property to his care for years to come. And when I’m ready to sell, I will definitely use Justin as my real estate agent. He makes everything efficient and stress free. He is also very kind and easy to work with. I highly recommend him for all real estate needs! Thank you Justin!

If you could "design" and "build" the most perfect Real Estate Agent, what qualities and characteristics would you include? What type of finished product would this agent be? Would you be extremely happy with the results that were produced? If you were, then you have just "built" Robyn Webb. Robyn is honest, experienced and knowledgeable about the demographics of your target area. You may not want to hear what she says about your house, but for us she was 99.9% spot on. Robyn entered the picture with her design expertise and following her advice on remodeling a few areas in our home, we were able to sell our house in 3 days at a higher price than expected. Robyn was able to accomplish this because of her work ethic and negotiating skills. Robyn and her team are the absolute best to have working for you. We recommend Robyn without any reservations, as your Real Estate Agent. Steve and Carolyn Fowle

Jorge Martinez acted as agent for both the buyer and seller when we sold our family home in 2016. He knew our neighborhood well and provided wise advice as to preparing our home for the market. The house sold in less than a week at an asking price higher than we expected. Jorge has great communication skills and paid attention to every detail. In the purchase of my new home this year he represented me very well in terms of the offer, inspection, and the closing process. I would recommend Jorge as your agent for any real estate transactions - knowing that he is an astute professional who is always friendly, hard-working, responsive and most helpful in looking out for the best interest of his clients.

She helped made the transition effortless and her professionalism was impeccable. I gladly recommend Maria, she is an excellent real estate agent and I will definitely call her again for any of my future Real Estate needs. Sold a Single Family home for approximately $800 K in Sherman Oaks, CA."

Mike Weber helped me buy my first home this year. He helped me by sharing his knowledge and experience in a way that gave me the power to make informed buying decisions. His enthusiasm motivated me and made the experience fun and exciting. Mike worked with the seller in a professional manner and got me a price well below the asking price. Mike also connected me with an awesome lender that was professional, friendly, and timely in getting my loan processed. You will not regret working with the Weber Real Estate Team for buying or selling a home.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a real estate agent do?

Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

  • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
  • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
  • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
  • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
  • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
  • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
  • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
  • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
  • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
  • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

What should you look for in a real estate agent?

When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

What do real estate agents charge?

Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

  • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
  • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
  • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
  • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
