I am looking for real estate agent that will help me with my flips. Agent that wants to move foreword,
doesn't afraid to give low offers and knows to give initial rehab estimation.
Any body can recommend me on some one like this? My area is Parma Cleveland
@Alex Bedar I would highly recommend that you start looking at your local REIA clubs. Many investor friendly agents are members of local groups where they are able to meet investors like yourself. I go to several groups here in Oak Park, Berwyn and Chicago for precisely this reason.
Also, make sure that you are not expecting the agent to do too much. You should never expect/rely on an agent to give perfect rehab estimates. As a realtor who works with investors, I often get requests like this. The investors want me to give them full rehab estimates, find the deals, deliver them the deal, and often line them up with contractors. That is not the agents job in my opinion. The agent helps you understand the local market and comps, and can help you project the ARV.
Looking at online reviews are good but if I were you I would definitely speak to members of the local REIA clubs like @John Warren said. They should have plenty of decent recommendations and you can interview a couple to determine which one you mesh well with.
I can ask my connections in Ohio for a good investor friendly real estate agent if you would like.
If you can do it I will be very thankful.
About the REIA I am a long-distance investor, so how can speak to members of the local REIA.
Is there any other way to find someone from REIA?
