Being the best Rhode Island real estate agent is the results of dedication to our clients, and a commitment to serving the needs of home buyers and sellers throughout the state. A R.I. real estate agent who has sold hundreds of area homes is more knowledgeable about the details of home marketing and sales than a newly licensed agent just getting started in the real estate business. The best real estate agents have been selling homes for 10+ years, they have sold 500 or more homes, they rank in the top 1% of agents in the country and they respond quickly to their clients through their preferred method of communicating, be it text, email, phone or in person.
If you are thinking about selling your house, you may be wondering, who is the #1 ranked real estate agent in your area. You have probably checked the reviews of local agents in your effort to find the agent with the best reviews from his or her past clients. There are a variety of companies providing real estate agent reviews such as Yelp, Zillow, Refer or Trulia. The fact is that naming the #1 real estate agent is difficult, because it means different things to different people. Often times the real Rhode Island agent with the most sales, doesn't have the time to provide the best customer service or experience. Sometimes less, is actually more if you are looking for the highest level of customer service.
We believe a top agent is one who receive referrals from their past clients. If a client is happy with the service they provided, then they are very likely to recommend the agent to a family member or friend when they need an agent to buy or sell a house, condo or town house.
The best real estate agents are members of the Rhode Island Association of REALTOR®, (http://www.rirealtors.org/) as well as the National Association of REALTOR®. In fact, in order to call themselves a REALTOR®, an agent must be a member of these associations. In addition, a local agent cannot have access to the local MLS® if they aren’t a REALTOR®.
The MLS® in Rhode Island is a collection of every home listed for sale by the real estate companies located in the state. They have formed a cooperative in which member agents share listing information with each other. Members are easily able to search local homes for sale and this can be done using any variety of search criteria such as price point, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, lot size, etc. If you work with a local agent, they will be able to provide you with daily updates each time a new home is listed that meets your criteria. This will save you time so that you don’t have to spend hours searching the listings yourself each day to see if there are any new homes that match your needs
