    I went thru a complicated divorce. I did not think I could ever reach a resolution with my wife. Scott helped me thru the process and even listed our house as a realtor. His real estate company provided professional photography at no additional cost and our photos were stunning. Scott continues to be the best mediator for the dollar and this is why he never has lost a mediation!!!!

    She found me a place that had just opened up on the market. She aggressively pursued my wants until a deal was accepted. I would go to no other real estate agent in the future.

      I used Erick's services to buy a rental property. I'm a real estate investor in CA and therefore work with a lot of agents and in several markets around the country. I would highly recommend Erick for anyone that needs an agent in his coverage area. During the process, my situation and needs changed, which I communicated to Erick. He responded quickly and worked out the details for me in just the way I asked for them to be done. Because of his great customer service, I've already used him for two deals and plan on going through him whenever possible.

      Jim was an outstanding agent. He would make sure that he allowed me time to look through each property at my pace, providing support and answering questions as they arrived. He went out of his way to make sure he established a relationship with the other agent and was very diligent about making sure every detail was taken care of. I LOVE my new home and in the very hot real estate market Jim made it happen!

      Allison is nothing short of amazing!! She was our advocate, our educator and our friend through the home buying process. The seller's agent and the sellers made the process very difficult but Allison absorbed a lot of our stress by staying on top of them, constantly communicating with us what was going on and kept us aware of next steps at all times. Home buying can be stressful, but Allison made it as enjoyable and stress free as one possibly can!! I'd highly recommend Allison to anyone!

      Overall, Ben did an excellent job. He was referred to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. I was looking for a house that I not only could live in, but also could eventually rent, and as someone who has lived in the area a long time, he was not only able to help me find that, but was genuinely interested in what was best for me and was more honest than anyone I've ever worked with in what I should or shouldn't be looking in terms of what was available and what would or wouldn't work for me. Would highly recommend giving him a try, especially if you're intersted in a real estate agent who actually cares about you.

      Spencer Wilson is an amazing real estate agent. The only reason we don't give him 5 stars at this time, is because he hadn't researched the properties he was showing us thoroughly enough. I believe that is because of his busy schedule and he is less than 1 year licensed. He was very patient with us and willing to work hard to get us into the home we finally decided on. With more experience, this young man is going to be an A-1 agent. I have already referred 2 other potential buyers to Spencer. He is an amazing agent and will be even more so as he gains more experience. If we ever need to move again, (hopefully we won't :) we're definitely going to call Spencer to be our agent again.

      Catina is one of the best. She's everything I want in an agent. She helped sell our house at our price within 30 days. She listened and put our needs before a commission. I will continue to use Ms. Willis to buy and sell real estate.

      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.
