The traits of bad agents are a lack of communication, knowledge, honesty, and timelessness....

    Communication-one of the most important things an agent must do is communicate often and openly with everyone involved in a transaction. The agent needs to check with lenders, title companies, inspectors, appraisers, and more to make sure everything goes well. Not all lenders are great either, but a great real estate agent will be in constant contact with the lender to make sure they are doing their job.

    Knowledge-real estate agents need to know what they are doing! That may seem obvious, but every real estate transaction is different. The best agents have experience and have worked in the business for a while. That does not mean new agents cannot be great if they have a team or a mentor to help them.

    Honesty-one of the worst things an agent can do is lie. Most of the lies I see are when an agent does not know something, so they make something up instead of admitting that they don’t know.

    Timeliness- in today’s hot real estate market, the agent must also communicate quickly. If it takes an agent two days to call someone back, it can easily cost the buyer a deal. The agent must also make sure the home inspection, appraisal, and other items are completed on time so the buyer does not lose their earnest money.

A really good agent will not only do their job but go above and beyond for their client. Real estate can be one of the best investments if you buy the right houses. A real estate agent can help buyers figure out what values are, what things to watch out for, and how to find an awesome deal on a house. Not every house for sale is listed online with Zillow or Realtor.com. Real estate agents have access to the MLS, where almost all houses are listed.
