While anyone can claim to be a great REALTOR® in Springfield Missouri, it all comes down to service and experience. All agents are required to take the same classes and pass the same exams to get their license; after that it is up to them to work hard, keep learning, and do a good job. Be sure to ask for client references before choosing a REALTOR®. Did you know that most agents drop out of the business in less than two years?

Things to look for in a good real estate agent

Do they explain what they are going to do and then follow through with it? Who cares how much they spend to advertise on KY3 TV, KSGF radio, The News Leader, or internet if they aren't available to answer your phone call or text message? Real estate is not a 9-5 job; agents need to be available on your schedule.

A good agent is not a “salesman” their job is to match up buyer and sellers with homes that meet their needs. Nobody wants to be “sold”. You aren’t going to sell your 6 bedroom 4 bath home to a single lady on a fixed income. But you might sell it to a doctor who is relocating to the area to work at Mercy Hospital and has a large family. Or you could sell it to a manager at O’rilly Auto Parts or Bass Pro Shops. A good agent has a pool of buyers and sellers they are working with at all times. If they don’t have a buyer they know where to find them.

A good real estate agent is also familiar with the local market here in Springfield MO. Home prices and amenities vary widely in different parts of town and in Ozark, Nixa, and Willard. You need someone focused on current trends and who knows the market. Rivercut homes are different than Lakes at Wildhorse,  just as homes in Ozark Heights are different than ones in Villages at Wicklow.

A good agent can’t do it all. They have a team of professionals they work with including loan officers, home inspectors, contractors, title companies, and others who they work with to make sure home sales go smoothly. They also use website designers, photographers, marketing/advertising, and other resources to get homes sold.
