Your real estate agent is one of the most important professional relationships you make.
For buyers, your agent can mean the difference between finding or missing out on your dream home, getting a deal, or identifying a great area you would have otherwise overlooked. For sellers, your agent can represent tens of thousands of dollars based on how effectively they price your home and get it sold.
Both buying a home and selling one are milestone events in life, and your agent is your guide, expert, and advocate throughout the process. The amount of influence he or she has on the final outcome can't be understated.
So the question arises:
If you plan to buy or sell in 2015 or 2016, how do you find the best agent for your particular needs and situation?
You could ask your friends for a recommendation, as many people do. But with over 8,000 licensed real estate agents across the DC metropolitan area, the chances are slim that a friend’s recommendation will be the perfect fit for you.
Enter Agent Cupid, a service that pairs home buyers and sellers with an agent whose strengths, expertise, and personality are carefully selected and matched to you.
Here's how it works:
- We talk to you to learn your home buying or selling needs.
- We identify the very best DC-area real estate agent to meet those needs.
- We put you in touch with that agent, who takes it from there.
The service is quick, it's easy, and it's zero-obligation. At no point are you committed to using our recommendation.
It is also free.
So, if you are buying a home in the next year or so, or selling your existing one, let Agent Cupid match you with a real estate agent who is the very best fit for your particular situation.
