When you think of real estate you have to think Realtor. When purchasing a home the best way to begin the process is to get a competent Realtor. This is easier said than done.

The web will have numerous sites that will have information on Realtors. There are also referral services that will get you a "buyers agent".

Referrals from friends and neighbors that have been through the buying process is another approach to finding a Realtor. This type of research will also provide easy information for purchasers about which Realtors not to use.

Resist the urge to go it alone and look for a home, it may seem quick and easy, but it may just be a great way to waste time. You should realize you need a professional that knows the area, can account for local matters and can get around town. Real Estate agents usually are a great resource for where things are and where things are not. If you want to know where the quality schools are and what area has the atmosphere that fits your family an agent is the only way to go.

You have to look at this process like you are hiring someone for a job. Look around, find someone you are comfortable with and who shares your views. If you have a family with young children, it may be a mistake to find a Realtor who is very young and does not have a family also. You want someone who shares your perspective and goals. Finding someone in a similar position to yourself is a great way to go to getting the result you want.

Of course there are many online sources to find an agent:

Sometimes this is the best way to go if you are moving to an area where you do not know anyone. You miss the referral aspect but you may not have a choice. Look for online reviews or testimonials about the agent's previous sales to get some idea of how other customers we treated.

At least these days you will not be totally in the dark with what to anticipate when looking for a home and finding a real estate agent.
