Realtors who work

As a seller or a buyer, most people want to be sure they are getting the best service possible.

Experienced, hard working, motivated, knowledgeable. Those are the attributes many use to describe the realtor they want working on their side during the home buying or selling process.

During the real estate boom years, many people obtained their real estate sales licenses. The business was there to support people who did not have the knowledge or will to go out and find it for themselves. Times are leaner now, and the ranks of realtors are starting to thin out a little.

Perusing the recent statistics for the South Central Wisconsin MLS board (the board the covers our geographic area) recently was an eye opening experience. In the SCWMLS, 71% of realtors have successfully closed zero transactions to date in 2008. Zero.

A little further probing revealed that Luis is in the top 6.7% of realtors in the local MLS board for transaction closed in 2008, and Brenda is in the top 15.5%.

Which type of realtor do you want working for you as you start the process of selling or buying a home?
