Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.
Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs because they should be more familiar with the local market conditions, local prices, and what’s hot or not in your community.
I retired from the Army 7 years ago and moved back to Utah but have been renting out my house in Gouverneur ever since. Due to the difficulty and hassle of renting I decided to sell. I have found upstate NY to be very difficult to find honest dependable people who do quality work.
Wendy is the exception!!! Wendy is AWESOME!!!
My house was vacant for a couple months while repairs were being made and she constantly checked on it and made sure everything was in working order. It was winter and she kept an eye on my fuel oil and made sure the furnace was working. She also found me a great handyman (Besaw Home Repair) for the repairs and coordinated with him to get them done. She relieved so much stress on me knowing she was there taking care of everything.
If I was buying or selling a house in Gouverneur again I would hire Wendy without question!
Thank you so very much for all you did Wendy!Jason & Lynn Heywood
