- In North America, where everyone knows 10-plus agents, the ones who do it right set themselves apart.
- Good agents don’t just wait for their clients to ask them questions: They are pro-active to ensure the client is getting the information they need.
- When trying to buy a home in a hot market, it helps immensely to have an agent with a positive, steady attitude.
Selling my home was, of course, just the first of two chapters.
In part one of this series, I wrote about my experience listing my home and the many ways that our agent helped make the selling process easier and more successful.
When my wife and I woke up the next morning, we found ourselves buyers in the red-hot Vancouver housing market.
We wanted to stay, broadly, in the same Kitsilano area — close to my office, the kids’ grandparents and family-friendly community amenities.
We were searching for a three-bedroom condo, ground-oriented, hopefully with some outdoor space: essentially, the same thing every young family was eyeing in that neighborhood.
