Which Real Estate Agent Is Right For You? When you are searching for a Real Estate agent in the Metro Milwaukee area to work with, research is important. Purchasing your new home will most likely be one of the biggest investment of your life. Doing a little research on a Real Estate agent will go a long way. Looking up reviews on the agent, google searching them, and checking their website are just a few ways to find out about the agent. For reviews and volume of sales, check major search engines such as Zillow, Trulia, and Redfin. These sites are the best way to truly figure out what the realtor brings to the table. Want to know the best part about all of this, there is no cost to this research, it’s all free! I rely heavily on Real Estate reviews from my clients. I actively reach out for reviews as well as send out my reviews to potential clients. I would like to show you the power of a review. Below are 2 reviews one from Ben and Stephanie and one from Brianna, both were recent clients of mine. Sure, we had some bumps in the road with these purchases but rarely does everything go perfect in such a big investment. It is how those bumps are handled by the Real Estate agent and the solutions they find that make be biggest difference. In the end, the only thing that matters is the Realtor did the best job for his/her client and the client feels good about their purchase. Here are two examples of a recent reviews I received on Zillow. Highly likely to recommend 5 out of 5 Stars 06/18/2016 Purchased Home in 2016 in Milwaukee, WI Local knowledge: 5 out of 5 Stars Process expertise: 5 out of 5 Stars Responsiveness: 5 out of 5 Stars Negotiation skills: 5 out of 5 Stars Bob is the best! I've never written a Google review but I had to give Bob 5 stars. He's been really helpful as we are first time buyers. We had no idea what we really wanted at first and he's been very patient and accommodation. Plus he's been really honest and upfront about certain things which was refreshing. He's not pushing you into the wrong home, he definitely seems to care about you getting into the right fit. I recommended Bob to my brother and I'd recommend him to whomever is looking for a home. We had some huge issues with a lender (won't mention the companies name) but Bob fought for us. Wish I could bump up the stars from 5 but I can't recommend him enough. Highly likely to recommend 5 out of 5 Stars Brianna Purchased Home in Brookfield We can’t recommend him highly enough. Bob is the reason our offer on our home was accepted. He worked hard to get us into properties the day they came onto the market. Bob was available and willing to answer all of our questions, and as first time home buyers, we had many. He knows Milwaukee and the surrounding communities well. It put our mind at ease knowing we had a knowledgeable, experienced advocate on our side throughout the home buying process.
