In this article we look at five tips on finding a real estate broker/agent in a large city like Las Vegas.

  1. Look for a list of licensed real estate brokers in your area.

There are plenty of places where you can get a list of licensed agents in your area. Start with a search online and also ask your network of friends, colleagues and family for referrals.

  1. Join an open house tour.

One easy way of meeting real estate agents is by going to open house tours.

It’s a relaxed environment, and you get to interact with the agents easily. Once you are there, try to make notes and ask for business cards of agents you are interested in working with.

By going on an open house tour, you will assess how the real estate broker works. Do they have sufficient knowledge and skills? Are they polite and informative? These are some of the things that you will see for yourself and eventually help with your decision.

  1. Get referrals.

The real estate industry attracts many agents, especially in a populous city such as Las Vegas. They have different levels of experience, some with and some without credentials, and there’s also quite a few who specialise in niche markets like condos.

Some agents specialize in residential sales while others work only in commercial real estate or focus on investment properties. And in residential sales there are different property types and each type can be a specialty.

If you are on the hunt for the best one that will suit your needs, ask other real estate professionals for recommendations. Professionals will most definitely refer other professionals who work like them.

  1. Pay attention to the listing signs in your area.

Try to jot down the listing signs in your area and look for the agent selling these properties. This is a great way to find a real estate broker who sells fastest. Don’t wait up until the sold sign to be placed because not all post a sold sign.

  1. Look for print advertisements.

In this digital age, we tend to immediately look online for fast transactions.

However, you may also try to check on print advertisements. Some real estate agents put up and promote advertisements the traditional way, depending on their targeted neighborhood. These real estate brokers may be an expert in the field you are interested in. List these ads and contact these real estate brokers to know more about their experience.
