Agent Highlight: Judd Hisel
Shopping for a real estate agent is just as important as shopping for a home.
Think about it -- just like you must do a thorough job of looking through all of your options when hunting for your dream home, you should want to do the same for the real estate agent who’s going to help you find that dream home. But, admittedly, it can be hard to distinguish between the thousands upon thousands of real estate agents marketing their services to the world. You could spend hours of your time researching the various options, sifting through those who have more experience, higher qualifications, better reviews, or who your friends recommend. Still, none of those factors will guarantee that that agent will work out for you and your needs -- an agent could have great numbers and tick all the right boxes, but still fail to truly understand you as a customer. They could still fail to be “the one.”
We believe that, to some degree, you need to get to know agent on a more personal level, beyond just their statistics and resumes, to come to an understanding of if your interests and personalities might work well together. And that’s why we began this Agent Highlight section of our blog -- to showcase the hobbies, quirks, and unique personas of each of our agents.
We sat down with one of our many talented agents and conducted a brief interview that, unlike a traditional sales pitch, focuses primarily upon the individual behind the pitch. Our hope is that this will help you to get a grasp on whether you and the agent will click together because that’s ultimately the most important part of the agent-client dynamic: the relationship.
