Before hiring a real estate agent to help buy a house, you’ll want to check references from other homebuyers who worked with this agent.
Try to get references from people whose housebuying needs and priorities were similar to yours. Ask the questions on the following downloadable form, plus anything else relevant to your situation. If you’re looking to buy a newly constructed house, for example, ask the agent’s references how helpful the agent was in this process.
