Reading Time: 4 minutes

With plenty of ups and downs in the real estate market, finding the right Lethbridge REALTOR® for you can be extremely important. Whether you’re buying a home or selling, one thing is for sure: you need to find the right partner to work with. 

Although buying or selling a house might seem easy enough, REALTORS® bring a wealth of experience to the process. This can be a huge help when you’re trying to find the best deal possible or when you’re trying to sell your home for the best price. Here are 7 helpful tips to help you find the best Lethbridge REALTOR® for the job!


Most people trust word-of-mouth recommendations, and for good reason. They’re often the best and most reliable way to find service providers you will enjoy working with. Make sure to ask about their specific experience with that REALTOR®, and why (or why not) you should consider hiring them. Because you work so closely with your REALTOR®, it’s important to remember that what works for one person might not work for you. 

Keep an eye out for red flags, such as if several people have had negative experiences with a particular REALTOR®. A real estate agent who has a long list of unhappy clients is unlikely to be someone you can rely on. 

Research REALTORS® in your area and read their Google reviews.

Searching for REALTORS® in your area using Google search is obviously the fastest and most comprehensive way to find someone. However, it can be daunting as there are so many options to choose from. That being said, Google is a great tool to double-check the credentials of a REALTOR®. If a friend has recommended a REALTOR® to you, you can also use it to read more Google reviews for yourself. 

Here’s what people are saying about GulikerVis:

“We worked with John on our house sale. He was knowledgeable and down to earth. Super easy to talk to, friendly, and took the time to understand our needs for the sale. Would highly recommend John for your real estate needs! Did I mention he helped with moving appliances to get the deal done! Above and beyond the expectations.”

“Thanks to William for his hard work and great communication, he sold our home very quickly! We had a great experience and will definitely recommend him and his team to anyone needing a realtor!”

“ I contacted John as we were thinking of selling a rental house in Lethbridge.  After a conversation about the market,  John thought we should hold on to our property.  I appreciate John’s honesty and advice when discussing our real estate needs.  He could have made a quick sale in this sellers market but presented us with reasons why we shouldn’t sell.   We will definitely recommend John! Thanks for looking out for your clients needs.”

Interview several real estate agents for the job.

Try to narrow down your search to 3-5 potential agents you’d like to work with. Once you’ve got your list, contact them and see if they’d be willing to sit down for an interview. During this one-on-one process, be sure to ask them any questions you might have. These questions can include asking for price guidance or specifics on their process. 

Most importantly, make sure that you and the agent are on the same page. Gauge how well you get along with that agent. Having an instant connection could mean you’ve found an excellent match!

Think twice about hiring a friend.

In general, it’s better to avoid mixing friendship and business. Apart from the potential of some very awkward moments in your friendship, purchasing and selling a home is also a very personal experience. Not only do you need to be able to work with your REALTOR® on a professional level, you will also need to disclose your financial situation. 

While there can be some upsides to hiring a friend, we recommend hiring a neutral third-party instead. If a deal falls through or the relationship turns sour, you can at least rest assured that you aren’t losing a friend as well. 

Meet the people on the team.

Does your REALTOR® work with a team or are do they work alone? Working with a team of real estate professionals can have several benefits. This includes being able to show your property to more people, or being able to search for and find you more homes that you might be interested in. 

If you prefer to have a real estate agent’s undivided attention or prefer to work one-on-one, it may be best to hire a solo REALTOR®. This can be especially great if you prefer your REALTOR® to take a more hands-on approach as they will usually oversee or handle every part of the process. 

Make sure your Lethbridge REALTOR® knows the area well.
