Tips on Finding a Trustworthy Realtor in Las Vegas

When buying a new home, chances are very good that you are going to choose a realtor to help you

with your home buying needs. With many realtors out there, finding one you can trust may seem to be a

daunting task. Especially if you've never hired a realtor before, or if you've ever had one whom you

couldn't trust, choosing a good realtor may be extremely difficult, if next to impossible, to accomplish.

So how do you find one whom you can trust, and one who will simplify your home buying experience?

Here are a few tips to help you find the right realtor.

Conduct Interviews

It's not enough to open the yellow pages and scan the listings of realtors there. Ideally, going to the

realtor's office is the best option, but you may not have the time to do this. Chances are there will be

too many realtors for you to go visit, so you may choose to conduct an interview on the phone. Be

prepared with a list of questions to ask, and expect frank and honest answers. It won't take long for you

to find out during the conversation whether the realtor is honest, or if they are simply a salesperson

who evades your questions by giving you pat answers, or fluff.

Ask for References

A good Las Vegas Realtor will be happy to give you the names of satisfied customers, in order to back up

how trustworthy they will be for you. Sometimes, many people will find realtors on word of mouth



Happy customers will be delighted to talk to you about your potential realtor, and many times, this will

arm you with the best information about the realtor you are considering.

Talk to the Broker

In some cases, talking opening with the broker about your realtor's performance may give you clues as

to how trustworthy your realtor might be. This may not always give you the best information, as the

broker certainly wants your business in the same way the realtor does, but a broker who is willing to talk

with you as a potential client may help you determine whether the company the realtor works for will

be behind you all the way.

Look for Communication Skills

There is nothing more frustrating than a realtor who does not listen to your needs. If you tell the realtor

that your maximum price you would pay for a home is $200,000, and the realtor continually shows you

homes outside of your price range, chances are very good that your realtor isn't concerned about your

needs or what you can actually afford, but is more interested in how much commission they may earn

off of your business with them. A realtor should remember how many children you have, and how many

bedrooms you need, for example; and if you need an office, show you homes with ideal office space; if

you have a dog, then the realtor should remember to find homes for you with a fenced in back yard, for

instance. You should never have to continually remind your realtor what your needs are; if you are

constantly reiterating your needs, then it could be indicative of your realtor either having too many

clients, or not really interested in what your needs really are.

Express Your Needs

A realtor isn't a mind reader, and it really is up to you to make sure your realtor knows exactly what you

are looking for. If you are not sure what you are looking for, then it is in your best interest to find a

realtor truly interested in narrowing down what you want. Ask questions. If you don't know whether a

school district in a particular area is a good one, for example, and you don't have children, then it is the

realtor's job to help you understand that even though you might not be concerned about schools right

now, there is a possibility in the future that it will be an issue. And while you cannot expect your realtor

to read your mind, a good, trustworthy realtor can still anticipate your needs.

Above and Beyond the Call of Duty

Some realtors only perform the minimum tasks in order to help you find a home. A good, trustworthy

realtor will go above and beyond the minimal duties. Do you need help finding a loan officer? Will your

realtor locate one for you? Will your realtor be present at closing time in case you have any last minute

questions? Will your realtor hand-deliver the title to the court on the same day you close? Will your

realtor investigate any issues you may have with the home you want to purchase, like will real-estate

taxes be included in your price, or will the appliances be included in the home purchase, or is the seller

going to provide a home warranty?


Some things may not occur to you now as a home buyer, but it should be in your realtor's best interest

to make sure they investigate any possible issues that may come up during the course of the


The key to finding a trustworthy realtor is to ask questions, no matter how silly they might be to you.

They should be familiar with school districts, utility company policies, which cable company is available

to you, and other things that are not necessarily part of your home purchase, but it is these little things

that make a realtor extraordinary, and one that you can trust to help you find the perfect home.
