Where can I start! I looked for Kelly when I had a not so great experience with another realtor that I was working with from a different real estate agency. I met Kelly initially through an email about a property that I saw a listing for. Kelly answered questions that I had and was very helpful. She followed up with me via text a week or so later to see if I had any questions about the property that I had inquired about. She was very warm and willing to help me in any way. That resonated with me, and I decided to save her cell phone number so that I could pass her info along to anyone else that I knew who may need a realtor. I just wasn’t having a much success with my other realtor so I decided to terminate the relationship and move on to a new realtor. I remembered Kelly and sent her a text, reintroducing myself because it had been about 2 to 3 weeks since we had made contact. I was extremely impressed because she remembered me! She started sending me properties right away. I found one that I liked and we made an appointment to see it. Kelly assisted me with making a very good offer on the property which already had multiple bids in place. Long story short, I got the house! Kelly has been much more than just a real estate agent to me, I can honestly say that I have found a new friend in Kelly. She goes above and beyond to get the job done and get you in your home!

Phizzy is amazing! She's experienced, knowledgeable, and just such a great person. In the past I've dealt with real estate agents that just tried to "sell" me on homes that weren't meant for me, simply to make a sell. Phizzy was so patient and so knowledgeable, it was very easy to trust her with helping me find a new home. If you want to work with someone who is in this business because she loves helping people and has been doing so for over a decade, this is who you should go to! I will continue recommending her to any friends or family looking to buy or sell their home.

Stu was very patient with us as we searched for homes in North Carolina while living in New York City. He showed us over 40 homes all around Raleigh to expose us to all the towns and what they had to offer. Very knowledgeable about Raleigh and all the surrounding areas. The house we actually purchased was taken off the market just prior to our last visit to NC and Stu was able to keep the appointment for us. He helped us through the whole process from the initial offering through to the closing, which we couldn't have survived it without him!

Mike has been FANTASTIC to work with!! He has kept me updated on the status of selling my house. Every little change that has happened in this process, I am made aware of immediately. This is my first time hiring a real estate agent to sell a home. I feel he has gone above and beyond what I expected an agent to do. I would highly recommend his services!

My husband and I bought our first home with Craig, and if we ever have to use another realtor we'll be hard-pressed to find someone as professional, responsive, and attentive as Craig in the future. He was never overbearing, but heard out our needs and did everything in his power to help us. Craig was an absolute pleasure to work with.

Shane has been a great realtor! From the moment I met him, I knew he was going to be able to find me the perfect house! He is friendly, down to earth, patient, and overall fun to be around. I was very picky throughout the process and had difficulty making decisions but he never pushed me to fast. He is a great communicator and always made sure my questions were answered. Once I found my house, he knew it was the one. He was able to negotiate and get me what I wanted. The closing was flawless as Shane had everything lined up and ready to go. Shane even went the extra mile after closing! I had something that needed to be fixed and he offered to come fix it for me. Even after some time has gone by, he is still there to answer all of my questions! I promise that you will be extremely happy with choosing Shane as your realtor. He is not only a great real estate agent, he is an amazing person and I'm glad to call him a friend for life!

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

Nick advised us through the whole process of putting our house on the market, pricing and contracts with ease and professionalism. With his help, we received three offers to buy our home in 36 hours after listing and sold for higher than the list price. Plus we negotiated our new home price under the value to the home's market value price. Nick has the business sense to maximize your real estate transaction whether you're buying or selling your home.

      Dale was a great real estate agent to have for my first house! He was easy to get in contact with and knew what he was doing. We would look at a house and dale would give his honest opinion on everything. He knew about the area and the pros and cons. Dale was available by phone and text and responded very quickly if not right away. I appreciate all his help along the way and will continue to use him In the future. Hopefully this is helpful

      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.
