How Many REALTORS Are There in Prescott?  What to Look for in a Real Estate Agent

You’re probably a bit overwhelmed by the number of real estate agents claiming to be experts in the Prescott area. So how many real estate agents worked last year as a member of the Prescott Area Association of Realtors?  Quite a few!

In the last 12 months there were over 1,339 different agents* that worked with a buyer or seller to close a residential, vacant land or multi-family sale.  1,339 that is a lot of agents!  There are so many kinds of agents out there, ones who simply transact for their own investments, ones who are partially retired and keep their license just to help close family and friends, the non-member agent from Phoenix that comes up, the part-time agent, the full-time agent, and the power teams with support staff & multiple agents.

There are a lot of great agents out there that are dedicated to their profession and are delivering real value to their clients.  There are many out there who work part-time, closing just a few transactions a year.  Then there are the full-time agents that literally eat, sleep and breathes real estate.  They’ll tell you Prescott area housing statistics without even having to look.  They’ve already seen that hot new listing down the street and know that it’s got 2 offers on the table.

So, when looking for an agent to represent you it is important to ask questions and so if they’re a good fit you.  Ask how long they’ve been licensed and practicing, and if they’re full-time or part-time, what their background is, and how many transactions do they do a year.  And don’t be shy about asking for referrals, and if you come across a questionable online review, ask about it.   Real estate agents are applying for job to work for you, it is okay to ask questions and make sure the agent fits your needs.

As a consumer you’re going to have a lot of choices when selecting an agent to work with.  By taking the time to reach out and speak to multiple agents you’ll definitely be able to find someone with the style of service you’re looking for.
