Getting hooked up with the right real estate agent is one of the most important factors in the home buying process.

  • Most home buyers need a real estate agent who not only is knowledgeable but is also familiar with the area and its pros and cons. 
  • The realtor you choose should do their own due diligence on the neighborhood the home buyer is interested in buying. 
  • Such due diligence your realtor should do include comparable sales, school districts, proximity to shopping centers, property values, crime rates, and other amenities nearby. 
  • More importantly, the realtor you choose should be available to you 7 days a week. 

Choosing On Hiring Realtor On Home Purchase

I am extremely cautious when I refer anyone.

  • I never refer anyone who I have not had a prior business relationship with. 
  • Every single home buyer I introduce real estate agents who I have worked with before.
  • I do have close friends of mine who are real estate agents and some of these realtor friends I have know for many years. 
  • They are all professionals and qualified real estate agents.
  • A real estate agent should be personable, knowledgeable, and go beyond and above the call of duty. 
  • Real Estate Agents are quarterbacks who coordinates real estate transaction goes smoothly by keeping in touch with mortgage broker/banker, seller’s agent, and attorneys until the day of closing.
  • For example, my son Timothy Cho, who is in the military, just completed his military training and is on the reserves and will be residing in Illinois. 
  • Timothy is a first time home buyer. 
  • I referred Timothy to one of my real estate agent partners without hesitation. 
  • I am currently working on trying to get Timothy qualified for a mortgage loan. 
  • Once he is pre-approved for a certain amount, I will give Tim and the realtor heads up to go for shopping.

Home Sellers

A very close friend of mine from Round Lake Beach, Illinois has over 70 residential properties and wants to sell a few of them.

  • His daughter is even a realtor. 
  • He has not been having too much luck with a realtor who is aggressive, returns his calls in a timely period,  and works evenings and weekends. 
  • He asked me for a referral since I have a lot of business relationships with a lot of realtors. 
  • Without hesitation, I referred him to one of my realtor agent partners. 
  • My friend listed 3 of his 70 properties initially and he just called me a few days ago to thank me.  
  • The 3 homes are not sold yet but my friend was extremely impressed with the activity that the realtor I referred him has brought to the table in just 4 short weeks.
