A Good Agent Will:Know the inventory.Have easy access to the homes.Are trained to write contracts.Can estimate closing costs and payments.Coordinate inspections, paperwork and escrow.
A good real estate agent will take the time and have the patience to guide you through the basic steps of buying a home. Choose an agent you feel comfortable with, someone who will represent your best interests. The more experienced they are, the more likely they will know how to quickly deal with problems as they arise. Ask for referrals or letters of recommendations.
Many people are put off by real estate agents because they are too pushy or aggressive. If you feel your real estate agent is incompetent or not working in your best interest, interview another agent. Don't feel obligated to sign a contract with a buyer's agent; they're a dime-a-dozen. If you are comfortable with your agent, be loyal to him/her. Don't use them to find a house and then have a relative "in the business" write up the contract. This is the time you need to have someone who knows how to effectively negotiate without emotional constraints. I have nearly ten years of experience, closing many transactions.
