How to find a good estate agent

There are many things you should consider when choosing an estate agent. Remember, it’s not all about the price they charge. You should ask what makes them qualified to represent you when selling your home.

Consider their local market knowledge, expertise, experience etc. An estate agent should be there to guide you through the process from start to finish, so make sure you choose wisely.
