How to Find a Real Estate Agent (for Investors)
- Google isn’t going to help you. You’d be hard-pressed to find a real estate agent who labels himself or herself as “investor-friendly.”
- Look for agents who consistently list renovated properties. More than likely, the investor who renovated the property is listing it with the same agent who helped them find the deal.
- Get out and network. Go to meet-ups. Ask questions. Most people love to share information.
In the video above, I go into further detail about how to successfully search for and find agents who have experience working with investors. By implementing these things, I assure you that you’ll take your business to the next level!
