When it comes to the big question “How do I choose a Comox Valley REALTOR®?” there’s no need to look further than Courtney & Anglin Real Estate Group. True, there are a lot of REALTORS® in the Comox Valley to choose from. At Courtney & Anglin, 95 percent of all the business we do is through referrals. That should tell you something. When it comes to recommendations, there’s nothing better than word of mouth, and we’re proud to be the name friends recommend!If you don’t have a referral, how do you know you’re choosing the right Comox Valley real estate agent for you? What criteria should you be looking for?

 

 

If you’re buying  a home, our recommendation is to work with someone who knows the local real estate market, has a thorough knowledge of the Comox Valley area, and who has an interest in the community so that they can answer your questions and let you know about the local resources available. If you’re selling your home, you’ll want to work with someone who will provide you with an extraordinary marketing strategy and show case your home exceptionally, guide you through the selling process, and negotiate a price that gets you the best value for your investment in the current market conditions.

 

Start with an internet search and look at the websites you find. A website can often tell you something about the REALTOR®. In the case of Courtney & Anglin Real Estate Group, Michele Courtney was born and raised right here on the coast and has been in the business since 2005. Bill Anglin, an 18-year resident of the valley, is very active in the community. Bill is currently a volunteer and the Vice President of the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation. As a former member of the Canadian Air Force Bill is very familiar with the process and transition of relocating. He is a valuable resource for those posted to or from 19 Wing in Comox.

 

The next step is to give the real estate agent you’re considering a call. Ask questions. Do they come across as professional? Are you comfortable with them? Do they have the right team working with them to meet your needs? Trust your intuition. First impressions can often tell you what you need to know.

 

The Comox Valley REALTOR® Checklist

Once you get a feel for your agent, compiling a good list of questions can also be a helpful tool. Here is a quick Comox Valley REALTOR® checklist, with a few questions to consider:

 

  • Is the agent a licensed real estate agent?
  • Does he or she work as an agent full-time?
  • Do they have testimonials or a list of references?
  • How knowledgeable are they about the Comox valley real estate market?
  • Do they communicate well?
  • Do they specialize in the type of property I’m interested in?
  • How well will they serve their clients? Will they be available for questions and updates?
  • Do they have admin support?
  • What is their sales history?

 

Again, trust your instincts. The more personable your agent, the more attention they will likely lend to your specific needs and the better the fit. Anyone can list a home, but an agent should have both the interpersonal and negotiating skills to get you the best price.

 

According to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trend Reports, 89 percent of all home sellers choose to list their home with an agent rather than selling it themselves. Reasons for this range from getting the best price to being able to close the deal and handle complicated contract negotiations. Whether you’re buying or selling your home, don’t sell yourself short. Let a professional get you the best price for your property.

 

Bill and Michele are happy to meet with you to talk about your real estate needs. Give us a call and find out if we’re the right match for the REALTORS® you’re looking for.
