What to Look for When Choosing a Napa Valley Real Estate Agent

Image of a female real estate agent holding a houseWhen you’re buying a Napa Valley home, you want to work with an experienced Napa Valley real estate agent. You want someone who will work with your best interests in mind, who knows the area well, and who has great negotiation skills. But how do you find this person?

Following are questions to ask any potential Napa Valley real estate agent.

1. How many buyers and sellers do you represent per year?

Rather than focus on how long someone has been in real estate, find out how many clients they work with each year. Just because someone is a newer agent shouldn’t be a reason to rule them out. If they come from a strong sales background and/or are being mentored by a long-term Napa Valley real estate agent, they can bring many positive attributes to the table.

2. How long have you lived in Napa Valley?

If someone has been a real estate agent for 20 years but has lived in Napa Valley for only 1 year, that may be a reason for concern. Ideally your agent will be a long-time resident who knows the area well and has tracked the local market trends over the years.

3. Do you have a team, or do you work alone?

While many solo agents are excellent, there’s no denying the power of teamwork. Agents who are part of a team have the benefit of collaboration. They can often give their clients better response times and they usually work together to problem solve.

4. What is your schedule?

Ideally you want a full-time real estate agent. If they’re not a full-time agent, find out when they are available to show you homes. You want to be assured that your schedules with match. Also, if they have any vacations planned in the next few weeks, make sure they have a back-up plan for their clients in place. What if the perfect home becomes available while they are away? How will they ensure you can see the home (and potentially submit an offer) even if they are away?
