Located at Last: Lafayette’s Best Real Estate Agent


If anyone out there is looking for the most mediocre Lafayette real estate agent to represent them, they are keeping it secret. Although people usually prefer not to behave in dull, predictable ways, when someone is about to put their own Lafayette home on the market or to buy their next house, almost everyone winds up with the same dull, very predictable goal.


Everyone wants to hire the best Lafayette real estate agent.


That’s easier said than done. First of all, the definition of “best” differs depending on who’s making the call. For some, the best agent is the one who communicates most openly and candidly, while for others, it’s someone who is quickest to respond—to clients, other agents, property owners, loan administrators, etc. Some people consider the best real estate agent to be one with the longest list of successful sales, or the one with the most recent sales—or even the agent with the most sales of the precise type of property that’s being sought or sold. And in fact, for any given buyer or seller the best agent will probably have a combination of the above or of many other of the skill-sets we Realtors® develop through the years.


 In practice, this means that the best way to find the agent who will be best for you is to first nail down your specific real estate objectives, and then canvass the field to locate the two or three Lafayette Realtors whose credentials look like the best match. Then call each of them up, have a chat, think it over—and DONE: you’ve found your best agent—time to get to work!


One practical aid that helps whittle down the candidates: in that “canvass the field” step, you’ll find most of the effort is spent on the web. In 21st-century real estate commerce, 91% (according to the NAR) of Realtors are present on social media, and the majority of buyers found their homes on the web. So it follows that whatever other qualities your best Lafayette real estate agent displays, being sophisticated, active and effective in the virtual world of web and mobile and social media is a baseline qualification. You’ll want to visit their website, interactive elements, and recency (if it looks like the last time they checked in was a couple of months ago, that’s not good)!


Of course, one of those two or three best Lafayette real estate agents is right here (my modest opinion). I hope to hear from you!
