“How can you know if you’re hiring a good real estate agent?”
Sizing up an agent is difficult for many people, because there's no consistent standard to measure them against. Buyers and sellers must make a decision based on very little more than what the agent tells them.
The only reliable approach to measuring an agent's effectiveness is to ask other people for their experiences with that agent. Ask the agent to give you the names and contact info of the last three clients they worked with. Then call or email those past clients for a reference.
If you’re considering hiring a newer agent, you may want to explore their support system. Talk to their broker or office manager to see how they’ll back up the agent to ensure you get high quality service.
