Are you planning on buying a home for the first time, or maybe your second home? If so, you’ve come to the right place! Here are 5 tips for choosing a Bend Oregon Realtor.

Tip 1 – Check Their References

Before hiring a Bend Oregon Realtor make sure you check their references including asking for at least three references for clients they’ve served recently.

Tip 2 – Review Their Licensing Information

Contact the state board to review your Bend Oregon Real Estate agents licensing information. This can usually be done locally but you can also do it online as well.

Tip 3 – Search for a Winner

Don’t just choose any Realtor ®, make sure you also choose an agent who has also been ranked highly by their peers including receiving the ranking of “Realtor of the Year” since this is a great designation any agent can receive.

Tip 4 – Confirm Their Credentials

Although it may be tempting to choose an agent because they have a “great personality”, you should also choose a Realtor ® based on the credentials that they have next to their name including: CRS, ABR and SRES.

Tip 5 – Verify Their Experience

Yes, there are a lot of Realtor’s out there today but the biggest question you should be asking is if they are experienced? Before choosing a Real Estate Agent make sure you choose someone who has verifiable experience just so you will know that you’re not choosing an agent who just got their license.
