Frequently Asked Questions
What does a real estate agent do?
A top real estate agent’s job is to guide you throughout the entire home buying or selling process. They back you up with expert knowledge, experience and a plan to help you crush your housing goals.
Since home buyers and sellers have different needs, there are almost always two real estate agents involved with every home transaction—a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent (or a listing agent).
A buyer’s agent will guide you through the process of purchasing a home within your budget that fulfills your list of must-haves. On the other hand, a listing agent walks you through everything you need to do to get your home ready for sale on the real estate market. They know what it takes to get the home sold on your timeline and for the best price.
How do I pick the top real estate agent?
We have confidence in each of your recommended RamseyTrusted ELPs to serve you well or we wouldn’t have recommended them! However, the most important factor when it comes to choosing your real estate agent is your own comfort level. We always recommend conducting your own vetting process to determine the best fit for your situation. Meeting the candidate(s) in person and asking these questions will help you determine if your personalities click. That's a great foundation for building a connection with the ELP you like the most!
Do I have to pay to use a RamseyTrusted agent?
There's no fee for coming through our site and using our service to find an agent. It's our goal to get you connected with the right people so that you can get the best help! If you choose to move forward with a RamseyTrusted ELP agent, they will have a service commission for the help they provide. That's an industry standard and true of any agent that you may work with. We cannot regulate what the ELP charges, so any questions you may have around the exact cost for their service would be great to ask them directly when you interview them!
