Discount real estate brokers provide the same services like all other brokers from home inspections to escrow. Contrary to common belief, the quality of the service they provide is no less than those provided by traditional real estate brokers. Discount real estate brokers are called such name because they charge lower commission 3-4% which is half of the standard 6% commission.

Here are some tips on finding a reliable real estate broker:

  1. Observe how the real estate broker behaves. Professional behavior is expected of a broker throughout the duration of the business. When a broker treats you in a very friendly manner, it might mean that he or she is not taking you and the job seriously. Also, watch out for subtle signs. Something as simple as the way your agent dresses or how they keep their home can mean a lot. Is the home well-maintained? Do they dress smartly? These can tell a lot about how a real estate broker performs the job.

  2. Your real estate broker must be able to guide you through the entire process. They must not only be knowledgeable about real estate laws, they must also be in the know about the area where the property to be bought or sold is located. They must know about the vital areas of the community locations of hospitals, schools, and other facilities.

  3. Work with someone who treats you well. A good agent is one who will make you feel that your interest is top priority. He or she must be polite regardless of the situation. It is also important that your agent deals with you with utmost honesty. An agent who withholds information from you is not to be trusted.

  4. Most importantly, find a real estate broker who works beyond what is paid. They do not have to perform difficult tasks that are not part of the deal. They can do things as simple as regularly updating you about the sale, being appreciative of your business, or being nice when talking to you over the phone.
