What to Ask Your Calgary REALTOR®: Question #2
Hiring the right real estate agent for the job is an important decision which will impact the success of your next home purchase and / or sale of your current property.
With this interview guide I hope to help you learn how to effectively find a REALTOR® who fits your needs best. Also see our Calgary REALTOR® Interview Guide for a quick skim over several other questions you should ask.
Q2. a) How do you communicate with your clients and how often will I hear from you?
Buying or selling a home or condo is a big decision with big implications on your life. You have to stay in the loop and know what is going on at all times with your transaction. This is vital!
Not only are there important steps in every transaction that you must take care of and be informed about, but staying in the loop every step of the way is also necessary for your stress levels and peace of mind!
You deserve to be in constant communication with your chosen Calgary real estate agent / REALTOR® on whatever schedule fits your lifestyle best.
If you are selling your property, you’ll want to know about:
- how the current marketing is doing
- when showings are scheduled
- what competition is in the area
- recent sales statistics for similar properties
- any feedback from potential buyers who have viewed your place
Find all these out for your property and get a Competitive Market Analysis today.
If you are buying a property, you’ll want to know about:
- new listings that fit your buyers criteria
- existing listings that fit your buyers criteria
- listing information and history
- current market performance for your sector of interest
- showings of potential properties

Conditional or Firm Sale
If you have a conditional or firm sale in place you will want to know about:
- the progress of the condition removal
- the next steps until the possession date
- when to call the lawyers and what to do next?
These are just a few examples of the dozens of steps involved whether you are buying, selling, waiting for condition removal of a pending sale or waiting for the possession day.
Q2. b) Can you afford to be working with a real estate agent that doesn’t stay in touch or keep you informed?
There is absolutely no reason for your Calgary real estate agent / REALTOR® to not be in constant communication with you. My clients don’t need to ask me whats going on because I have already told them where we are at and whats next in the most courteous and professional manner possible.
My clients are my employer; I respect their time, schedule and stress levels. My goals? Make the best use of your time, eliminate stress, inconvenience and “surprises” from your transaction and provide you with the best possible service, representation and get you the best value in all of your Calgary real estate dealings.
You should ALWAYS know exactly what is going on with your transaction and ALWAYS be completely informed. Send me a message below and lets start communicating!
