4 Important Signs It’s Time to Find a New Realtor

Your relationship with your realtor is incredibly similar to a romantic relationship in a lot of ways. And like a romantic relationship, there are certain red flags that mean it’s time to end it.

Here are 5 important signs that it’s time to break up with your realtor:

  1. They don’t communicate – When your phone calls always go to voicemail and your emails and texts don’t get a response until days later, if at all, it’s time to find a new realtor. You are never going to find your dream home or market your house effectively with that type of communication.
  2. Your realtor doesn’t listen – If, at your consultation, you told your realtor you wanted a specific number of bedrooms in a certain school district, and they consistently show you home outside of that range with no explanation for why, they probably aren’t the right fit. Find a realtor who will listen to your needs and show you homes that fit your criteria.
  3. Your realtor makes you uncomfortable – If every conversation with your agent leaves you feeling uneasy or nervous for what’s to come, you need to find a new agent. You should be able to trust that they know what they’re doing and have your best interests at heart.
  4. Your realtor is making decisions without asking – If your agent is making decisions for you without your consent, this is a HUGE red flag. If you feel like your voice isn’t being heard, it is time to move on.
