Alice is now our "Go To" realtor for any of our Real Estate needs! She actually listened to what we were looking for and then found properties that matched that need! This saved us so much time and trouble. Other realtors "hear" you but then show properties out of your price range or not what you are looking for. My husband and I both appreciated Alice's frankness, attention to detail, and genuine desire to find us the home we needed. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a realtor who will go above and beyond to meet their needs.

I have to say this is the best experience I ever had working with a Realtor. Yves works with you like family. Dedicated, excellent follow-up, down to earth from the initial process till the end. I first met him few years ago and promised to use him, I kept my word and I am glad I did because it became a stress free experience. I recommend to everyone give him a try you will not regret. I just love his work ethic. Thanks so much!

Missy is a wonderful person & realtor! We bought/sold in '09 when the market was in terrible condition. We faced a series of obstacles, including the death of my father, our buyer's lender revoking his loan approval, and an A/C overflow in the attic of the home we were buying--all just a few days before we were set to close on both homes! I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, but Missy never wavered. She was calm, cool, and professional, and held our hands through each issue until both deals were done. Nearly 10 years later, she still checks up on us and stays in touch. We'll never use anyone else!

Jared did a great job in helping us find a house in the area of Houston, in the price range we were needing when we moved from Dallas. Then a year and a half later, he did a fantastic job of listing our home and getting the best offer we could sell it for. Jared goes above and beyond to make things happen and go smoothly for both sides. He has been the best realtor we have used. We highly recommend him.

I wish I could give ten stars! Robin is AMAZING! She is kind, caring and so sweet but also so professional and always has your back! She knows every detail of a sale or buy you can imagine and is wonderful to work with. Seriously - I think she is the BEST out there - so happy we used her on the sale and buy of our homes! We were so so happy for all she did to close both deals for us. She's the best!

We met Joseph at one of his open house showings. We were working with a realtor at that time, but we were left to look around on our own because our realtor was mostly unavailable. Every weekend, we would look for open house showings then call our realtor if were interested in the house. We finally decided to go more intense in our home search so we decided to change our realtor. We called Joseph two weeks after we met him at his open house. We were very impressed because he remembered who we were, including our names. We knew we made the right decision in choosing him to handle our biggest investment - our forever home. He was always prompt, flexible, and so patient with us. We looked at numerous houses and we changed our minds a lot before we finally found the right home for us. Joseph never pressured us into making decisions. He pointed to us things in the house we have overlooked, such as uneven flooring. Joseph's wife, Bobbie, is a realtor as well. She came with us in one of our home search, and she too helped us in making sure that we paid attention to details of the house. Both of them made sure that we are taking our time and making the right decision. We trust Joseph and Bobbie. They helped us search for our home as though they were searching for their own. We knew right there and then that they were not interested in making just a quick buck, but to make sure that we buy a home where we will be safe, secure, and happy. We will be closing on our new home in September. We are so thankful to Joseph and Bobbie for making this journey so exciting and stress free for us.

    Not only is Steve an excellent realtor, he also has years of experience in the home construction business and can provide valuable feedback about your property or the home you intend to purchase. When used Steve to purchase a home and sell a home and his insight was especially helpful when we were purchasing a home and wanted to know if the house was in good shape for the price that was being asked. He is a great listener, easy to work with, and works effectively with other realtors.

      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.
