In real estate, knowledge is power and no one has better insight into your neighborhood than the top agents who have spent years serving your community. Top local real estate agents can help you buy your home for less or sell your home for more.

Now that you know how important top real estate agents are, how do you gain access to them?

SeattlePI has partnered with YourHome to introduce you to the best real estate agents. Our team identifies these agents by crunching the data for you, like the number of properties the real estate agent has worked on, speed in closing on properties, and the transaction price of their properties. And the best part? It’s 100% free for you.

So how does it work? First, you fill out the short form below. We’ll then give you a quick call to clarify your needs and ensure that you match with the right agent. We pre-select and pre-screen all our agents before introducing them to you. We then use data to select our agents, meaning they don’t pay to get listed.

Why should I use YourHome instead of a referral?

While referrals can be good, they may not be one of the top performing agents in your area. Our data shows that top performing agents are better alternatives to friend/family referrals or searching on directories for agents who advertise. You increase your success rate and odds of getting the price you want by working with top agents because a referral might not be the best fit for your situation. Instead of spending time looking for agents, we save you the hassle by introducing you to the top talent in your market.

When should I hire a real estate agent?

If you are already thinking about making a move, you should definitely fill out the form right now. If you’re still early in the process, we’re still happy to match you to an agent so you’re ready to go when the time is right. It’s important to have options and being prepared by having the right advisor makes all the difference. If you prefer, you can interview a few agents before deciding, and we’re happy to help make those introductions.

I’m ready to talk to an agent, what do I ask them about?

When interviewing agents, your goal is to understand the agent’s experience and focus area to make sure they’re a good fit for you.

Here are some questions that can help you:

    • What are the current real estate trends in my area?
    • How many similar homes have you worked on in the last 12 months?
    • How long do you typically take to sell a home?
    • How long do your customers typically spend looking for homes?
    • Do you work alone or as part of a team? If part of a team, what does that process look like?
    • How do you plan to market my home? Can you explain your strategy to get me the right price?
    • Would you be able to send me a few referrals I can follow up with?

Their answers should help guide your selection process. If you have any questions, one of our team members can help you with the selection process as well.

How much will it cost me?

Nothing, our service is always 100% free for you. All you need to do is fill out a short form and answer a few questions. One of our friendly representatives will contact you and discuss your plans. It really is that easy!

Who do these agents work for?

You. These agents work for you and only you. They don’t work for either SeattlePI or for YourHome so you have the peace of mind that they’re fighting for what’s best for you. We base our selection of agents on performance data in your area and then recruit them as partners.
