Katie was an amazing realtor. Her knowledge and expertise made everything very easy. She took the stress off of us, and made sure all of our needs were met. Katie was also one of the nicest people I've ever met, and she is a joy to work with. I will most definitely use her in the future.

After a bad experience with a previous realtor, Emily was a blessing. Her quick response and professionalism were unmatched. After our house went on the market, it sold within days. I would highly recommend her. Thank you Emily!

Being new to the real estate market, Tony has made the process of buying and selling a home very easy. Our home sold within 48 hours and we started searching immediately. If a new home went up for sale Tony was able to schedule showings as quick as possible. Several of our friends have also used Tony as a realtor and they were very pleased as well.

    I have worked with a lot of Realtors in the past and have never really been happy with their approach. He listened to our needs and was able to make suggestions after actually listening to what we had to say. Jamie is very knowledgeable in his profession, is very personable and really seemed to care about helping us find the right house, no matter how long it took us to find it.

    Kimberly is a great realtor and a wonderful person to work with. She always made time to answer all of my questions . She went above and beyond when it came to showing me houses. One day we saw 4 houses and this was after she had already shown a house to another client. She walked me thru the closing process so I would know what to expect. I really can't say enough nice things about this lady. The day that we found my house was the day she showed me 4 other homes. My house was a FSBO and she just happened to see the sign as we were driving by. I am glad that she has great eye sight.

      Ryan was an excellent realtor. He listened to my wants and needs and worked hard to find me the perfect new home. He quickly and efficiently sold my former home, so finding a new one was time sensitive. He worked overtime to find this home for me. He worked well with the other agents to make sure all parties were satisfied. Ryan quickly earned my trust and I will be recommending him to others who are looking to buy and or sell their home.

      I take extra time and a lot of leg work to complete some of transaction. At times I get buyers who other Realtors don't want to work with because of the problems involved in their financing or other requirements to buy some property. I take those clients as a challenge and work very hard to finish the transaction. Sometime they may not work out but most of the time with a lot of leg work everything comes to fruitation and the transaction is closed. What it all boils down to is; I see problems as a challenge and I will do everything in power to make things work out for the better.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
