The number of registered property agents have increased steadily over the last few years to reach an all-time high of over 35,000 to kick off 2024. 

Whether you are buying your first home, upgrading from your current house or investing in a property, it is beneficial to engage the services of a property agent to assist you. 

Hiring the right property agent is crucial for a smooth and successful real estate transaction. Here are some steps to help you find and hire the right property agent:

  1. Define Your Needs: Understand what you’re looking for in a property agent. Are you buying, selling, or renting? What type of property are you interested in? What is your budget? Knowing your needs will help your property agent to work efficiently according to your requirements. 

  2. Research Agents: Look for agents who have experience and a good track record in the specific area or type of property you’re interested in. You can start by searching online, asking for recommendations from friends and family, or checking real estate listings for agents who are active in your desired location.

  3. Check Their Credentials: Ensure the agent you’re considering is licensed and registered with the Council for Estate Agents (CEA). You can verify this information online via the CEA Public Register.

  4. Read Reviews and Testimonials: Look for reviews and testimonials from past clients to get an idea of the agent’s reputation and quality of service. There are many review websites such as the individual property agencies, PropertyGuru, Google reviews and Facebook.

  5. Interview Multiple Agents: You do not have to settle for the first agent you find. Interview several agents to compare their expertise, communication style, market knowledge, and approach to working with clients. Ask about their experience, recent transactions, and how they plan to assist you with your specific needs.

  6. Discuss Fees and Terms: Clarify the agent’s fees and commission structure upfront. Make sure you understand how much you’ll be paying and what services are included. Negotiate terms if necessary, but also consider the value the agent brings to the table.

  7. Evaluate Communication and Compatibility: Communication is key in any real estate transaction. Choose an agent who is responsive, attentive to your needs, and communicates clearly. Also, consider your compatibility with the agent and whether you feel comfortable working with them.

  8. Trust Your Instincts: Ultimately, go with your gut feeling. If something doesn’t feel right or if you’re not comfortable with an agent, it’s okay to keep looking until you find the right fit.

  9. Review the Contract Thoroughly: Before signing any agreements, carefully review the contract terms and conditions. Make sure you understand your rights and obligations as well as the agent’s responsibilities.
