Choosing an Estate Agent /Realtor
Marketing is the Difference between For Sale and SOLD

In Florida all Realtors® are licensed by the State of Florida and it is a 3rd degree felony to practice real estate without a license. To obtain a Realtor’s® license it is necessary to attend Real Estate School and pass the schools exam followed by a very rigorous State exam. This license has to be renewed every 2 years – this ensures your Realtor is up to date with current laws and practices. 

Once you have joined the board of Realtors® you are able to access the Multiple Listing System (MLS). This is a web-based system that lists nearly ALL properties currently for sale in Florida. All Realtors have access to the same properties. Really you must find a Realtor that you feel that you trust and can work with to sell your home.

Check what experience your Realtor has – have they taken additional exams that will benefit you?
