How Do I Find A Good Realtor To Help Me Buy A Home In San Jose CA?

How Do I Find A Good Realtor To Help Me Buy A Home In San Jose CA?

Finding a trusted Realtor to help you buy a home in San Jose CA can be frustrating if you don’t know where to look. If you do not personally know a Realtor that you can trust, the best route would be to ask family, friends or co-workers for a recommendation. Make sure you ask the family member, friend or co-worker the following:

  • Have you used this Realtor before?
  • What did you like about him/her?
  • Is there anything that you did NOT like about the Realtor?
  • Would you use this Realtor again to sell or buy your home?

If you are new to the area or cannot get a recommendation, you can try one or a combination of the following:

  • Google for a Realtor specializing in helping buyers find a home in San Jose CA or a nearby community
  • Go to open houses in the area
  • Call different real estate brokerages in the area

Once you narrow it down to a few Realtors, talk to and/or meet them. Make sure you get a good feeling about the person, that he/she can be trusted and you would work well together. Also, it is advisable to check the license status and disciplinary record of the agent on the California DRE website.

If you still have not found a Realtor to help you with your home search, please continue to peruse through this blog or visit the BKR Realty website and/or one of my other blogs on Activerain or WordPress.

Should I Sell My Home In San Jose Without A Real Estate Agent?

Should I Sell My Home In San Jose Without A Real Estate Agent?

Selling your home in San Jose is a big decision.  There are pros and cons for trying to sell the home on your own so you should evaluate whether or not the pros outweigh the cons for your situation.  Since every seller’s situation is unique, what works for one seller may not work for another seller.

Some things to ask yourself if you are thinking of selling your home in San Jose on your own include:

  • Do I know the San Jose real estate market enough to price my home right in order to maximize traffic and profit?
  • Will I be available to show the house whenever a prospective buyer contacts me?
  • Will I be able to effectively market my San Jose home in order to maximize traffic?
  • Am I comfortable interpreting a contract and its legal terms in order to protect myself?
  • Do I understand the escrow process?
  • If I am able to net more profit doing this myself, is the additional profit worth all the work involved or time taken off from work to do this?

Should you decide to hire a real estate agent to help sell your home in San Jose and are looking for someone who will look out for your best interests and provide you with first-class service, please call (408) 410-5628 or send an e-mail to
