How To Find The Right Real Estate Agent?

Real estate agents are vital to a successful housing journey. When a person is selling or buying a house, hiring the right real estate agent can make a stressful time exciting and fun. First-time home buyers may be unaware of what to look for when searching for a real estate agent. People who are new in this journey should start by looking into reputable agencies such as Special Agents Realty.

Special Agents Realty has nearly 20 years of experience, and we specialize in luxury homes, residential real estate, waterfront properties, and floating properties. If you’re searching for a real estate agent in Medina, WA, contact us today!

What To Look For When Hiring A Real Estate Agency?


When an agency has years of experience in the industry, you can be confident that they have knowledge of the area, pricing, and what state the housing market is in. That knowledge is at your fingertips to use and benefit you in the process.

Linda M Bagley, the owner of Special Agents Realty, has 18 years of expertise in the industry. It also is helpful that she is knowledgeable in various neighborhoods. Having someone who is an expert will save you time and alleviate stress.

Relationship Building

Fostering relationships with clients is important. You want an empathic, trustworthy, and communicative real estate agent during the process. 81% of sellers highly value a responsive agent, and 86% highly value a trustworthy agent.

It’s important to build relationships because recommendations will come from them, and some customers will be repeat buyers or sellers. At Special Agents Realty, we appreciate the connections we make every day.

Knowledge of Various Properties

It’s always suitable for an agency to know about different types of properties, even unique ones. In Seattle, houseboats and floating homes are good options for people not wanting traditional properties. It’s good to get with an agency to help you explore all your options.

Special Agents Realty specializes in floating properties in Seattle. Bagley, a real estate agent in Medina, WA, and surrounding areas, co-founded the Lake Union Liveaboard Association, which helped floating properties be listed on the Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

Resources & Connections

When you get an agent with good connections, it benefits you. This can get you in contact with good handymen, home inspectors, mortgage professionals, and closing attorneys. A connected agency is beneficial when you don’t know where to look or want referrals on these things.

Marketing & Technology

In a time with the internet being the go-to for everything, including home buyers and sellers, it is vital to have an outstanding online presence. A successful real estate agent has a good social media presence and utilizes all technology that will help people in their home journeys.

If you’re looking for a good real estate agent in Medina, WA, and surrounding areas, contact Special Agents Realty today! We’re excited to help you find the perfect home!
