Finding a Capable Agent to Meet Your Real Estate Needs

Whether you're a first-time buyer, selling your current home or relocating to a different part of the country, the support of a qualified, knowledgeable real estate agent can alleviate many of your concerns and ensure a smooth transaction. A professional agent can market your present residence, help you locate the home of your dream and assist in making your transfer to an unfamiliar area easier.

To find a trained broker, you need to look no further than your CENTURY 21 Hart Realty professional. Your agent will be current and up to date on market trends. Markets do change from time to time, and your agent will help you understand the type of market that exists at the time you are wanting to purchase property. In an initial interview period your agent will go over with you the features that are important to you in the home you purchase. When your agent is showing your property, your agent will listen to your feedback to help zero in on the home that works best for you.

Your agent will also be ware of all of the Oregon State Laws and Disclosures that are required for each transaction. The agent will also furnish you with a CENTURY 21 BUYERS SERVICE PLEDGE. This will assure that the agent will be providing you with service that is professional courteous, and responsive to you.

Communication is extremely important when you are working with your agent. The agents use cell phones, texting, e-mail, and many use social networking sites. Your agent should be receiving immediate up dates if a listing comes on the market that will suit your needs. Sometimes there may be a seller's market with low inventory available. When it's a buyer's market, there is more inventory. However, much of the inventory may be short sales and foreclosures. Sometimes the foreclosures are priced so competitively that there may be multiple offers. Having an experienced agent can be important. Sometimes, though, new agents who are well-trained bring an added enthusiasm to your search for the right property. You really need to work with an agent that you find comfortable and trustworthy. A personal interview is the best way to determine if the agent has those qualities.

A qualified agent should be able to answer your questions or have resources available. If you are relocating to another area of the country, CENTURY 21 has a network of offices all over the country and in many foreign countries. CENTURY 21 has a huge umbrella and is still the most recognized name in real estate.

CENTURY 21 Hart Realty has been in the Portland Metro area since 1981. We have agents who range the full gamut of experience. All of our agents, regardless of years in the business, are educated, knowledgeable and enthused about working with you.
