5 Signs Your Realtor Isn’t the Right Fit for You

As a first-time home buyer, finding the right realtor can be challenging. If you have no prior experience, it can be tempting to trust the first realtor you meet. After all, they’re professionals with good convincing and negotiating skills.

However, hundreds of technicalities in the real estate world make it important to find a reputable realtor who understands your vision.

So how does one determine who to trust? We’ve come up with a list of red flags for you that you can check to indicate whether your realtor is capable of doing the job or not. Keep reading!

Lack of Communication

If the realtor you’ve hired to help you sell your house or invest in a commercial property, you’re going to have to rely on their support to navigate the entire process. Most real estate business is time-sensitive. If they don’t help you put down an offer at the right time, you can lose the business you were interested in investing in.

Lack of communication will lead to missed earning opportunities, making the process even more stressful.

Ideally, your realtor should get back to you within 24  hours,  or 48 hours at most, in case of a query or a concern. The sooner they return your calls or message, the better.

This will also demonstrate strong listening skills, which will make you feel confident to hire them.

Failure to Stick to Your Budget

If you’re seeking assistance with a down payment on a home, your realtor must stick to your allocated budget. If they continually look for properties out of your budget, they may not be a good fit for you.

This can also result from a lack of communication or the realtor’s inability to fully understand your needs and requirements.

Lack of Network

One of the biggest benefits of hiring a professional real estate agent is that they have a strong network that can help you connect with home inspectors, lenders, and attorneys. Their connections will increase the likelihood of your making successful transactions.

Lack of Credentials

There’s no doubt that professional real estate agents can be charming and convincing during a meeting. However, the majority of their job relies on whether or not they can sell properties.

Having charisma may be beneficial, but if they don’t have the necessary negotiating skills or the ability to handle pressure, they’re not going to help you.


A realtor’s job is to ensure that all the clients’ transaction particulars are taken care of without leaving any detail unmonitored.

If your real estate agent keeps missing the transactional details or is unorganized, you may want to look for another realtor.
