10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR

10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a REALTOR®

Homeowners should interview a few potential REALTORS® before deciding on one to sell their home. Here are some smart questions to ask:

1.  How long have you been in the business?
A freshly-licensed REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up-to-date training; those in the business longer bring more practical experience to the table.

2.  What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?
A competent listing REALTOR® should hold a track record for negotiating sales prices that are very close to list prices.

3.  How will your marketing plan meet my needs?
Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often do you advertise? Will you show me a sample flyer? How do you market online?

4.  Will you provide references?
Ask if any of the references are related to the REALTOR®. Ask if you can call their references with additional questions.

5.  What separates you from your competition?
Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, professional, reliable, and able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances.

6.  May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?
A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, the listing agreement and seller disclosure.

7.  How will you help me find other professionals?
Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated”. It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors.

8.  How much do you charge?
You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. It may be a good idea to ask what their commission fee is for your reference.

9.  What kind of guarantee do you offer?
If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement?

10.  What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?
Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know--always.

Hello, my name is Johnny Hunt. I was born and raised in Ottawa, ON, Canada and have lived in the same neighborhood, Carson Grove, for 48 years. I was married in 2000 to a fellow “Grover” named Sherry and we have two beautiful girls, Brianna and Kierra who we are raising in, you guessed it, Carson Grove. Real Estate keeps me quite busy but coming home to an amazing group of girls is always fun and uplifting!

 I am a Real Estate Broker by trade with the Capital Homes Team @ EXP Realty, and I love selling homes! Its a passion of mine that has flowed over into a successful Team with some of the best Realtors in Ottawa! We've recently joined with EXP REalty, a cloud based, forward thinking Brokerage where we hope to continue and grow each and every year in business.  This April will be our 11th Anniversary...I'm proud of the great people we work with and am looking forward to bigger and better! 

I love to develop and maintain unique fundraisers as a hobby…some of which will be featured in these pages. CHEO Spiel, CHEO 100, CHEO Open, CHEO Derby, Monopoloff. My favorite event though, is my first event, the CHEO BBQ! A bunch of high school kids hanging out having a blast and passing around a fishbowl to raise some money for the local Children's Hospital...the rest is history. At the 20th Annual CHEO BBQ Mike Machargo and I were thrilled to hand over a $50,000 cheque to CHEO, and then raise $65,000 more! The Ottawa Mayor declared it ‘CHEO BBQ Day’ and re-named the volleyball courts ‘The CHEO BBQ Courts’. Then they surprised me with the United Way Community Builders Award…all in all I would say that’s a successful event! 2021 will mark the 29th Anniversary of the CHEO BBQ - see all the details @ www.cheobbq.com.

I am a hard working dedicated professional who knows Real Estate and can help you Buy or Sell a Home here in Ottawa...just give me a call!
