6 qualities of a great Real Estate Agent

Posted on May 9th, 2023 in Resources by Compton

Entrusting the perfect real estate agent to help sell your property can be a overwhelming experience. Selling property will be one of the biggest sales of your life and getting the right person on board is absolutely crucial. Here are what we consider the top qualities of a great real estate agent:

Excellent communication
A good agent will keep you in the loop with what is happening and will pass on any updates in a timely manner. They will also return your phone calls and reply to your emails as soon as they can.

Local expert
Having an agent who is an expert in the local area is essential so they can answer all your questions about public transport, local schools, sporting clubs, community culture, local amenities and a lot more.  

Honest and trustworthy
When making one of the biggest purchases of your life you need to know that you can trust and believe what your agent is telling you. Our advice is to check your agent's local reputation and to follow your gut.

Well connected
Every successful agent needs to be well connected with a vast network of contacts within the market they serve. In addition, at Compton Green we provide a Concierge service where we help connect our clients with local contacts such as removalists, tradespeople, cleaners, gardeners and lots more.


Self motivated
A good agent is always a step ahead, is proactive with the sales process and always looking for opportunities to improve the sales outcome.


Problem solver
Sometimes problems pop up which are inevitable, it’s how they are dealt with that matters. It’s also important for an agent to think on their feet and look for ways to minimise problems from occuring.
