Questions to ask before choosing a real estate agent: What are your working hours?

Posted on Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 at 1:26am.

When you list a house for sale or set out on a journey to find a new home, your best success will come when you're able to work closely with your agent. That means your agent needs to be available during the same hours that you are available.

Some real estate agents today only work from 9 to 5 – and some don't work on week-ends. So if you work 9 to 5 Monday through Friday, connecting with such an agent will be difficult at best.

And what if an agent's time is limited in other ways?

Today, some agents are working at other full-time or part-time jobs themselves, so if you try to reach them during normal business hours, you'll find them unavailable.

Some also have religious beliefs that prevent them from working on Saturday or Sunday.  

Do ask the question. And then choose an agent whose working hours correspond with the hours you have available to meet with them.

Just so you know... Our regular hours are from 10 in the morning to 7 in the evening daily. We can also meet with you at other times by appointment.

So call - and let's set a time to meet.
