Help in finding a Realtor

3 Replies

Hello my name is Marion and I am new to the investment world, I want buy and flip houses,  I have a realtor who just send me listing of properties, that have sold or only for rental. What should I look for in a realtor.

Marion,

Have you tried attending a local investment club?  Sometimes you can find out who can help you get to the next step for finding property.  Most pro's I know will have at least 3 lines in the water to fish for deals. Agents can be just one, how about direct mail & wholesalers etc?

I will add to the previous post...look for agents that works with investors...in my experience many agents (not all) only want to work with folks that has cash on hand...many will not look at other options to receive their commission....I work with many agents and my standards are very high...KEEP UR WORD and don't take all day to return a phone call
