5 Star ratings - I've read 70% of reviewers do not trust them.
Tripadvisor, Yelp, Google, all have reviews in common. When we have choices of multiple hotels, restaurants, businesses it is great to have a source where one can compare, research to make their decision. The sheer convenience makes the search and find all that much more delicious. The more homework you do, the more you will to be satisfied with the result, you hope!
When it comes to choosing a Real Estate Agent you want to have the same opportunity . A proper choice will make the many pitfalls of finding and buying or selling your home be reduced. A professional knows from experience what needs to be done to limit and smooth out the entire process. How to handle multiple offers, how to handle the many seemingly minor sometimes major stepping stones that arise from a Home Inspection ie asbestos, mould, vermiculite... Constant communication with all parties involved to keep a family all on the same page as they get their parents home ready for sale. Experise in getting as many type of buyers from Builders, renovators first time home buyers, Downsizers to come to the table. Getting more interest will get the buzz going that creates situations most positive for the sellers.
Yes homes sell quickly in our little pocket of the Universe Etobicoke and some may think all you have to do is put a sign on the lawn , list it on MLS and it will sell. And for the most part this is true BUT you will be leaving many dollars on the table. By cleaning up the property, updating, staging, advertising and marketing you can achieve the maximum of interested parties in the market at that time. These are all the reasons you should find the succesful agent who is willing to get you the best result. And yes we all know this and choosing your agent requires your homework and hard work, and it should for your families purchase or sale.
Rankmyagent.com just doesn't post a review or testimonial. They confirm, affirm each one by contacting the buyer or seller. This is very important when it comes to choosing your Real Estate Agent to represent you. Your chances for success will be enhansed. This is a very personal business and just choosing a company or brand is not enough. Choose the person who you can identify with. The most confident, competent and relatable to you with a history of success in dealing will make your experience less expensive in many ways.
Rankmyagent is linked to Realtor.ca the public MLS system so when you see their logo under the Agents name you should check it out and read what people like you are saying about the agent. Read between the lines and see if these are the values you look for in an agent and then check out their website, their social medias postings, their Google presence and you will be able to see how you will be serviced. It only makes sense!
