What to Look for in a Hollister Ranch Real Estate Agent
Any real estate agent licensed in California can
assist a buyer of property at Hollister Ranch. However, the discriminating
buyer will take advantage of the most qualified real estate professional
available. Anyone can make claims of excellence, so what should
you look for in an agent?
Is your agent a licensed broker? A broker—as
opposed to a sales associate—has committed to a much greater degree
of education in the practice of real estate. All else being equal
and given the option, the choice of a more educated and knowledgeable
agent simply makes more sense.
What is the Hollister Ranch experience of your agent? When
did your agent first become associated with Hollister Ranch; when
did your agent first purchase property at Hollister Ranch; when
did your agent begin to sell property at Hollister Ranch; how many
Hollister Ranch transactions has your agent completed; what is the
extent of your agent’s participation in the affairs of the Hollister
Ranch Owners’ Association?
What other properties does your agent sell outside of Hollister
Ranch, and how much time is devoted to the sales of other properties? Time
spent elsewhere is time that cannot be devoted to clients who
are purchasing property at Hollister Ranch.
Is your agent a homeowner at Hollister Ranch, and does the agent
live full time at Hollister Ranch? A resident homeowner can
offer insights to living at Hollister Ranch that others simply
cannot. Hollister Ranch is a unique community with distinctive
challenges not found in other locations in California. An absentee
owner or a lessee can’t fully appreciate all the complexities
of life at Hollister Ranch as can a full time resident homeowner.
Furthermore, a home owning agent will be selling property to their
future neighbor. The importance of that aspect should go without
