Chase is a very personal guy. He makes you feel comfortable during the home searching process. He is one of the best realtors I've worked with. He is even willing to run in to a middle of a White Walker army just for you. If you want a realtor with a lot of energy and professionalism, always go with Chase.

Pam is someone who put in the extra hours. You feel extremely unsettled and nervous when selling and purchasing a new home. Her confidence reassured us she would ensure the deal would happen. Pam took great care of our family. We felt that we were her only clients, when of course this wasn't the case. Working with a previous agency, Pam's customer service skills and attention to our needs was far superior. You should be proud to have her as an employee!

Tasha not only provided me with the ideal home, but through her professional advice I was able to begin my search with a wide variety of options and narrow it all down to what really mattered. I couldn't be happier with my decision and hope that someone else looking for the ideal home asks this woman plenty of questions, I know I sure did! Be prepared for a realtor with a plethora of knowledge in this industry.

Christina did an excellent job as our realtor. We purchased the house while overseas in Germany. Christina took care of every detail for us and went above and beyond to ensure that it was a stress free process. She understands the needs of the military buyer / seller. I can't say enough good things about her and would provide her the highest recommendation to anyone looking to purchase a home.

    Laurie was the best realtor we could have asked for, we called her on a Thursday and we were looking at houses Friday. In this market houses move really quick and Laurie was able to help us find the perfect home just in time. She provided excellent guidance, and we couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend Laurie to anyone looking to purchase a new house in KC/JoCo.

    Bill came highly recommended from a handful of couples who had used him to either sell, buy or do both for their home needs. Long story short, Bill did an excellent job for us when it came to buying a home. His background in home construction/home remolding was an added bonus to give us some trusted insight on a home's condition and/or what we could do to add value. Bill was always easy to reach if we had any questions and he did an awesome job for us from start to finish in helping us find our home. Bill's home knowledge and professionalism is unparalleled. My wife and I highly recommend Bill to be your next realtor - you will not be disappointed!

      Ed is amazing at what he does. If you are searching for a home or trying to sell, look no further. Ed puts his clients first. I had worked with four other agents in an effort to find my first home before meeting Ed. No one else's customer service even came close to Ed's! He was very patient with me and was not pushy. I took several months off from searching for a home and he never harassed me like other realtors seemed to do at times. Having someone helping you who has been in the real estate business for a bit is vital. Ed knows his stuff! He won't try to sell you just any house so he can make a quick buck-Ed cares genuinely. He knows hazards when they are there and offers good input on what improvements may need to be made. Ed even helped me out with a couple issues after I bought my house. He really goes above and beyond for his clients. I am hard to please, so take my advice and go with Ed Rippee. There is no one better in the business!

      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.
