If you want personal service, say so! Finding the right real estate agent to sell your Brevard County house....

When you are ready to sell that Viera house or condo, who will be doing the work? Who will be the face of your brokerage?Many real estate agents and brokers pay lots of money to get their names plastered all over the place. They scream “Hire me, Hire me!”

By the way, print media is not cost effective. You want an agent who knows where the customers are…on the Internet!

But what happens when your listing gets back to the office? Will the real estate agent in the magazines be marketing your property themselves or will they “farm" it out?

When you have a question or want feedback will it be a brand new recruit who gets to “work” your listing (they call it sharing with a new agent!) that you will deal with?

Sometimes the name and face on the billboard or in the magazines is there only to get you to call and sign the listing agreement!

Keep in mind this is not directed at anyone and it is only my opinion!

My point is if you want personal service let your real estate agent know that up front!
