Do they have a professional aura around them? You will get a lot of information about your realtor and the amount of knowledge they have by listening to them.

The agent you choose must always make use of the market data. An agent must provide you with facts and information about the market.

Run away from an agent who does not seem to have a good grasp on the market details. They should also know about the neighborhood where your home is located.
