Communication: Buying or selling a home is a big deal! A great realtor will provide constant communication and an easy explanation of the process and answers to your questions in a way you can understand. Communication is key and must be present for a positive buying or selling experience.
Accessibility: In the real estate biz you might hear, “Time is of the Essence.” Ask a realtor, how accessible they are on the weekends and after hours. A great realtor will be easy to reach and will communicate with their clients if they are out of town or will not be easily reach for a time period. Find out all the ways the realtor can be reached, text, email and do they use a smart phone or not. Never use a part-time realtor to do the full-time job of selling your home or helping you purchase a home. Deals are done in the matter of minutes not days and a great realtor will be on top of it!
Experience: This is key. A seasoned realtor has been there and done that, so to speak.

An experienced realtor can be the difference in a good deal and an awesome deal!
Honesty: You realtor has to “have your back.” This means telling you something that could jeopardize the deal. A great realtor will be completely transparent with you no matter what, because your best interest should be the great realtor’s top priority. If you feel like your realtor is not fighting their hardest for you, it’s time for a change. Having an advocate for you when buying or selling is a must!
