When looking for a real estate agent, there are a number of factors that must be taken into consideration. Your agent will be the one assisting you in one of the biggest transactions you will ever make, whether that be buying your first home, or selling your family home. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, having a real estate agent that understands your needs and wants is essential in making the transaction go as smoothly as possible.

One of the best ways to initially start searching for an agent is to ask around to family and friends. More often than not, they will have worked with an agent and given they had a good experience with that agent, they will be more than happy to refer that agent to you. Another great way to begin looking for an agent is to look at their reviews from all previous clients.

Online reviews are becoming increasingly popular across a number of different industries (from products and services, to food delivery apps, restaurants, vacation destinations and more) as a way for consumers to get an honest opinion, and for businesses to gain new clients/consumers. Finding legitimate reviews is important, which is why RE/MAX Canada has enlisted the help of RankMyAgent, a trusted review site that is the official provider of reviews for www.remax.ca.

Why Reviews Matter

Reviews are incredibly important, whether you are a buyer or seller, or you are an agent, as they allow for honest expressions of one’s experience with a real estate agent. An agent that is good at what they do will have a higher number of positive reviews, which is a huge benefit to them as those reviews help set them apart from the crowd as being a good agent who has given their clients a great experience. As a prospective buyer or seller, reviews can help give you an idea surrounding who the agent is and what kind of experience you can expect from working with that agent before you’ve even met, solely based off of the experiences of others.

If you end up choosing a highly positive reviewed agent, you can expect a great experience with a professional who knows how to get the job done.

Why Leaving Reviews is Important        

Reviews are essential for real estate professionals who are wanting to expand their client base and grow their business, as those reviews help bolster an agent’s image and credibility. The more positive reviews they have, the happier the customers they have assisted through their home buying or selling journey. This is what makes reviews so important! If you’ve worked with a real estate agent in the past, or are currently working with one, make sure to leave them a review, or send them a testimonial that outlines your experience working with them. Reviews only take a small amount of time to write, and often are incredibly beneficial to an agent’s business.
