223 Seattle Real Estate Agents

A successful home purchase or sale nearly always starts with a good agent or broker. Real estate is a complex and continually changing business, and agents and brokers are trained and educated in its many rules, regulations and standards. They have the inside scoop on different Seattle neighborhoods and areas and know what constitutes a fair price in the market. Hiring a pro also means you won’t have to deal directly with the prospective buyers or sellers, which may save you some tension. More

What Does an Agent or Broker Do?


Although the terms “agent” and “broker” often are used interchangeably, they’re not the same thing. Generally, a broker must have more specialized education as well as licensing, and as a result is legally authorized to execute a real estate transaction. Brokers usually play a more administrative role in the real estate process. An agent, by contrast, is a salesperson hired by a broker to interact with and handle the legwork for the clients.

A buyer’s agent represents a home buyer or seller in a real estate transaction. A buyer’s agent will find Seattle property listings that match your needs, works with the seller’s agent to schedule showings and accompanies you on visits to tour the home. If you’re interested in the house, the agent handles price negotiations and other terms of the sale, and coordinates the appropriate paperwork.

A seller’s agent will help you determine a listing price for a Seattle property and can suggest repairs, upgrades and staging ideas to boost the home’s appeal. He or she is in charge of marketing the house to prospective buyers and other agents through signage, websites, print ads, open houses and other methods. As with a buyer’s agent, a seller’s agent represents you in negotiating the sale.

Questions to ask a prospective agent or broker:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How long have you worked in this area?
  • Do you work full time or part time in this business?
  • Do you represent buyers or sellers exclusively, or both?
  • What are your professional affiliations?
  • For sellers: How will you market my home?
  • For buyers: How will you find homes that might interest me?
  • Have you had recent sales in the neighborhoods that I might interested in?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • How do you charge?
  • What do your services include?
  • Will I be working with anyone else?
