To see if the agent is local, ask for a quick list of homes that he/she has recently sold. You also have to inquire if your agent lives in the area and if yes, ask them for how long.

Tip number 4. In it to win it – there are some markets that were still not able to recover fully from housing crash. One thing that you have to ask to your prospect agent is to how long will she/he be willing to represent your property not be quickly snapped up.

And above everything else, you need to get along with your real estate agent and at the same time, you must feel comfortable while working with her/him as you would be spending your time together for a while.
