Ryan is very professional and delivers results. If you own real estate, do yourself the favor, and have Vera Property Management manage your property (Unless your a property manager yourself.)

Laura helped us buy our first home, and I couldn't be happier w/ the result! The thing that I appreciated most while working w/ Laura is that I truly believe she cared about us (her clients) and that we find the perfect home. If you want a realtor that is also friendly, hard-working, thorough, and responsive, then Laura is the one for you!

    After having an ‘at home’ realtor (who came highly recommended) and who was afraid to even hold an open house, having only 3 showings in 6 months - I fired her. Yes, my property was a difficult one, in a tough market. However, Bob worked diligently on every lead, with numerous Open Houses and timely showings. He was intense, yet calm and knowledgeable. He knows the business of real estate, codes and how to work with people in a very creative way to get the sale. He knows all the venues for listing a property, and always welcomed my input and ideas. While trying to sell my property, he found numerous new listings for me to purchase. Frankly, you’ll be happy you hired Bob.

    I hired James after speaking with several property management companies. His approach was one of working together as a team and being transparent. He took on a complicated job with my rental as it was a potentially total commercial, potentially commercial and residential or just residential with the commercial portion being retained by me. We had several meetings over 4 months to strategize what would be the best change to bring great candidates to the rental. In the end a residential alone seemed to be the best option. Recently a few expressed interest but were in search of a pet friendly home, which was another unfortunate road block for James. Having to replace carpeting along with other issues was a reason to keep the rental pet free. Durante and Rich utilitize numerous free resources as well as the MLS to advertise your property. After consulting with James, I utilized free resourses as well, sending the leads to him for potential appointments and interviews. It was this teamwork that was greatly appreciated. Communication at times was delayed, but overall this has been a positive experience working with James.

    I was extremely surprised to find out how new she was to the real-estate field. She worked like a 10 year veteran. I personally had a very enjoyable first time home buying experience with this great knowledgeable realtor. She has contacts in all fields of home buying from lenders who work with you to very knowledgeable inspectors that make sure you are buying a good qiality property. Will be doing future business with her as my realtor.

    Jim Treis was our real estate agent for our condo in downtown Milwaukee during the summer of 2015. You will be hard pressed to find another realtor who is as hardworking, innovative and proactive. After another "top" realtor in town didn't sell the unit in six months, Jim Treis sold it in under two weeks. We highly recommend him for any real estate need you may have.

    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.
