How do you find the best real estate agent in Fort Wayne? Like the girl and her three bears in the 19th-century fairy tale, some real estate agents are too hot or too big, some too cold or too small, but there is one who is “just right” for you.
Your job, if you hope to be successful in your home purchase or sale, is to find that best real estate agent in Fort Wayne.
Now, determining the right “fit” with a real estate agent is highly subjective. What works for you may not work for your next-door neighbor.
Sure, asking friends, family and colleagues for a referral to an agent they’ve worked with successfully is still a good idea, but, again, their agent may not be the one for you.
A California Association of Realtors Home Buyer’s Survey finds that 64 percent of homebuyers didn’t search for real estate agent rankings.
Shocking, isn’t it?
When you consider that big chunk of money you are about to invest or earn, wouldn’t it be wise to learn about others’ experiences with the agent you’re considering?
The truth is, too many real estate consumers spend more time reading amazon.com reviews for portable chargers for their smartphones than they do checking real estate agent reviews. If you want to make sure you have the best real estate agent in Fort Wayne, this is a crucial step.
Consider that we have been voted top 18 best real estate agent in Fort Wayne on expertise.com for 2021!

Of course one shouldn’t rely solely on online reviews…
Before you call even one agent, get clear on the type of person you want to work with. Think about personality, experience and professionalism because they all matter when you’ll be working so closely with a person to represent you during this life-altering purchase or sale.
The agent’s personality may not seem important, but consider that you’ll be spending a lot of time, possibly in the same car, with the agent.
Have you ever been forced into the same room with someone who you couldn’t wait to get away from? For whatever reason – a dour Dave or chatty Caroline, for instance – even a few minutes spent with them are far too many.
Once you’re clear on a good personality fit for your needs, consider if you want a solo agent or one who has a team. There are advantages and disadvantages to both.
Determine how long you are willing to wait for a call-back (or email or text) from an agent. Consider this scenario: It’s a fiery real estate market where homes in your price range are being snatched up just about as soon as they hit the market.
You see your dream home online and call your agent to get an appointment to view the home. Time is of the essence.
How long are you willing to wait for a response?
So long that you lose the home? Think in terms of minutes, not hours.
To be the best real estate agent in Fort Wayne, the agent has to be quick and responsive. Call, text or email each agent you are considering hiring. How quickly does she or he respond? If an agent takes a long time to respond when courting you, imagine how much worse it will be once you are already committed.
Your real estate agent will be at the helm of the purchase or sale of a huge investment. Keep your vetting standards high, strategically sift the wheat from the chaff and you’ll find the perfect one.
