Selling - To Reduce Stress, Hire an Agent

By, Dian Hymer, Orlando Sentinel (05/06/01)

Among the ways to reduce the stress associated with buying or selling a home is to hire a trustworthy, energetic and professional real estate agent. Buyers and sellers can find reputable agents any number of ways, including asking friends and family for referrals, going online, or visiting an open house.

To receive the best possible service, the buyer or seller should make an exclusive arrangement with the real estate agent…

Consumers enlisting the services of a real estate agent should fully understand the nature of their relationship with the agent before entering into a listing or purchase agreement. Those buyers looking in several marketplaces would also be best served by working with one agent per marketplace.
