As you go about your house-hunting adventure, it's wise to pick a great real estate agent you know you can trust. Not only do you want a realtor that you can work with, you want a real estate agent you can enjoy.

Your realtor should be someone who understands just what you're looking for and is used to working with clients like you. When it comes to selecting real estate, start by choosing the right real estate agent. Here are things you can do to help you pick a real estate agent for you.

Pick someone who is local

If you pick a real estate agent who is local to your area, you will be able to select an agent who understands the community you want to buy a home in. Most real estate agents work by region, so choose one who is either from the area you want to live in, has an office in the area you desire, or who specializes in helping home buyers from your location find the homes they want.

Pick someone who is reachable

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you'll likely ever make, so you need a real estate agent who is very communicative. A realtor should be easily reachable via phone, email, and other ways, so if you have a quick question about a potential home or other concern, you can feel confident you'll be able to reach them.

In the same thread, a proper real estate agent should be contacting you regularly about homes they see on the market they think you'll be interested in. A communicative real estate agent knows that they have to be proactive in order to help you find a home you want, and this can only be done by communicating and being easy to get hold of.

Pick someone who listens

A real estate agent should know what you want as much as you do. You should share with your realtor the type of home you want, your budget, and any features you desire in real estate. Pay attention as well to the types of properties your realtor shows you so you know that they match the desires you have. Your real estate agent should have your best interests in mind, so as soon as you click with a realtor, ask them to show you the homes they think you'll enjoy in your area so you can really see if you will be a working match for buying your next home.
