10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR

10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR®

Homeowners should interview a few potential REALTORS® before deciding on one to sell their home. Here are some smart questions to ask:

1.  How long have you been in the business?
A freshly-licensed REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up-to-date training; those in the business longer bring more practical experience to the table.

2.  What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?
A competent listing REALTOR® should hold a track record for negotiating sales prices that are very close to list prices.

3.  How will your marketing plan meet my needs?
Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often do you advertise? Will you show me a sample flyer? How do you market online?

4.  Will you provide references?
Ask if any of the references are related to the REALTOR®. Ask if you can call their references with additional questions.

5.  What separates you from your competition?
Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, professional, reliable, and able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances.

6.  May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?
A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, the listing agreement and seller disclosure.

7.  How will you help me find other professionals?
Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated”. It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors.

8.  How much do you charge?
You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. It may be a good idea to ask what their commission fee is for your reference.

9.  What kind of guarantee do you offer?
If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement?

10.  What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?
Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know--always.

Real estate runs in the family.

The Mizzoni name has been serving the real estate needs of the GTA for six decades. My uncle James was a successful real estate broker and served as president of the Toronto Real Estate Board, and my father Daniel has been in the business for nearly forty years.

Growing up close to the business, I developed an early interest in real estate trends and became actively involved as an investor and administrator. With a background in new home construction, I know what to look for and who builds it right; I have a longstanding relationship with some of Canada’s largest and most acclaimed home builders and work closely with them on their new developments.

I have also successfully enjoyed over a decade in the fast paced entertainment industry -- which took me across North America and Europe -- representing business coaches, investors, c-suite executives, leadership experts and award winning athletes and performers. Working with large international corporate clients and local community event organizers, charities and not-for-profit organizations has afforded the opportunity to do business with a diverse group of people. Today I bring this wealth of business knowledge and expertise to achieve proven results for all of my clients.

Getting you into your dream home and making your buying or selling experience pleasant and risk-free is my top priority. For keen attention to detail, clear communication and a consistently high standard of service, I am the realtor you want to have in your corner.
