My company purchases and rents out properties in the Charlotte area. Le’Kisha has served as our real estate agent in acquiring properties, as well as our property manager once we have purchased them. As a real estate agent, she has been able to find properties that fit the specific needs of our business model. As a property manager, she has maintained a good balance between being proactive in addressing our renter’s need and keeping us informed of issues that require our attention. I highly recommend Le’Kisha Stevenson and Metric Realty.

Cristina did an excellent job. The transcript had some difficult voices to differentiate and one with a heavy accent. The transcript is clean and professional and she turned it around in two days. I highly recommend her service.

BJ was the first among 15+ agents that I called when I started looking for a house. He was very approachable and would take a question anytime over the phone. You can throw anything at him and he will get an answer for you. He assisted us with homes for sale, new ready to move ins and construction homes. He had his responsibilities as an agent well covered and went above and beyond to help through the process. Very conscientious, professional all the way and me being a new home buyer, he almost helped with every step personally. I would definitely recommend BJ to those looking for a real estate agent (buyers or sellers).

I've used agents before and Anna stands out among the rest because she is well connected within the Charlotte market which made everything smooth. No surprises or issues and when their were small hiccups, Anna was quick to diffuse and move through the next stop. Great attention to detail and personal care throughout. Would highly recommend to first time buyers, sellers, and real estate investors alike.

We cannot say enough about Roy Cummins! I had never used this website or program before so I did not know what to expect at first first but he responded immediately and quickly made me feel at ease. Mr. Cummins was incredibly prompt, honest, and yet patient with us as we went through the process of selling our house. He was incredibly accommodating as well. I think his background especially helps his skills as an agent and that became obvious quickly. He is from Charlotte and knows the area well, he has experience with his own investment properties, and formally worked as a general contractor; all experiences that I think impact his perspective as an agent and add to his strengths!

My wife and I are from NY and are interested in making a move to Charlotte, NC. We got in touch with Christie and Chad Krantz who offered to educate us about the real estate market and the city of Charlotte. We were very impressed with their knowledge and professionalism. Being that we didn't know much about what Charlotte had to offer, we really didn't know what we were even looking for. After explaining our needs, Christie pulled up a few available houses and drove us out to take a look. They are helpful, polite and knowledgeable. Whether you are a Yankee looking to relocate or a local needing an agent, Christie and Chad will make the experience a good one. Thanks guys!

Crystal was my agent when I bought my home in 2012, and also sold my home in 2016. Both experiences were fantastic. She walked me through the process both times and supported me completely. I would not hesitate to recommend Crystal to anyone buying or selling property.

    Robin is a consummate professional. She is very well organized and takes charge of the whole process. Everything from "staging" the home, to having her photographer there(and on time!), to setting up our listing, was handled in such an efficient manner. Whenever any issue came up...whether it was a sudden request from the buyer...to a repair that needed to be done before closing...she solved it. She has a superb team of people working for her! You can absolutely trust her to ensure you have the best possible real estate experience...

    I use all my expertise to find buying customers the perfect home at the best price. I'm never impatient; the right home is out there. Sellers are kept informed of what is happening with their home and the market. I am just as concerned as they are; that their house sell quickly and for the highest price. I'm an excellent agent and can't imagine doing anything else. Call anytime. My cellphone is always with me.

    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.
