Choosing a Real Estate Agent to Sell Your Home in Colorado Springs

Team Woodleaf

Did you know that there are more than 3,200 real estate agents in the Pikes Peak Region?

In 2017, Colorado Springs was ranked the eleventh best city to be a real estate agent in the United States—just behind Austin, Texas and Irvine, California.

With so many real estate agents to choose from and many of them brand new to the industry, it is essential to think about what you are looking for. We get it. It’s easy to choose a friend who recently became an agent to help you buy or sell your home. This needs to be thought about carefully though. A brand new agent doesn’t know what they don’t know. You may think you are “helping them out” by giving them your business, but choosing to work with someone less experienced and new to the game (especially in a hot market like Colorado Springs) could cost you time and money in the long run.

Start by asking your agent where he or she ranks among other agents in Colorado Springs.

This is not an offensive question. Sellers should always ask about an agent’s past sales, client testimonials, and closing times. Moreover, a good agent will be well established in the community and knowledgeable about what buyers are searching for. This will help you to sell your home quickly and for top dollar.

There is an adage that says 20% of the people do 80% of the work. Unfortunately, this is often true—even with real estate in Colorado Springs. While we wish every agent the very best and are always excited to see new and eager faces, it’s important that sellers understand not all real estate agents are the same. To have the best experience selling your home, we recommend asking detailed questions. Interview potential agents you would like to work with before handing over the listing to your beautiful home.

At Woodleaf Realty, our top agent ranks in the top 8% of real estate agents in Colorado Springs for 2017. Our overall team ranks in the top 12% of brokerage firms in the Pikes Peak Region.
