Peter is a great real estate agent. His determination as well as his tenacity to do the best for his clients is evident in his work. Even with challenges and hurdles he manages to steer the ship in the right direction, all while making it look easy. I was thoroughly impressed with his professionalism, knowledge and flexibility with any question or situation that came up. I would definitely recommend him to anyone, buying or selling, or in our case, both at the same time! I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for myself and my family.

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

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!

One of the best agents I have ever worked with!!! DJ helped me get in touch with the perfect lender to assist my mom with refinancing her home. My mother seen a major increase in her mortgage payment and screamed for help. DJ provided us with some of the best Direct Lenders in the real estates business and we were able to get my mothers mortgage payment down from $2,300 to $1,400!!! In addition to that, my brother moved from the state of Florida to California and wanted to buy a condo! He found my brother a condo I a matter of 6 days. And then....AND THEN..we closed in 15 days! I cant thank him enough for all he has done for me and my family! DJ and his Vantage Realty Team went above and beyond and will always be my realtor...PERIOD!!!

    September has been beyond helpful in my search for a residential investment property in the Los Angeles area. I am impressed with her extensive knowledge of the city and its surrounding areas as well as her professionalism and detailed knowledge of the real estate buy/sell process. As a new investor, the countless resources September and her team brought to sales process far exceeded my expectations and were all vital and helpful to my purchase. I found September's efficient, friendly and honest approach very refreshing. I could not have done it without her!

    Our agent Attaya Brown went above and beyond to secure our dream at owning a home. Our loan process was not easy and there were many long days and late nights, but Attaya was there every step of the way to make sure all of questions were answered and our documentation was in order. There was never a time we weren't able to contact her day/night and we are so appreciative of that. We plan on using Attaya for all our future real estate endeavors and referring her to our friends and family.

    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 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'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 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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
