What can you learn from this chart and these #'s.

Three Largest Idaho Real Estate Brokers- Keller Williams, Silvercreek, Coldwell Banker Tomlinson Group.

Which company is the most productive? CORE Group by almost double everyone? Another interesting perspective of this chart, which does not include every real estate company in Idaho, is that if we agree that an agent would need to sell at least a home a month to make a living, this is the only company where agents can work full time with out a second job?

I would not recommend using this chart, necessarily, when looking for a Realtor because at the end of the day it is about agent performance and client satisfaction- your satisfaction! There are professional agents that work hard to take care of clients across the Treasure valley who work for a variety of brokerages. Finding the right agent for you is a personal choice. That being said the chart above easily displays which companies have the largest resources to sell homes and who are the most aggressive or hire agents that are closers.

How to choose an Idaho Real Estate Agent

  1. Referrals. There is nothing better than a trusted advisor sharing their network with you. Another way to get referrals is from your bank. The home loan department will definitely have relationships with several in the industry.
  2. Personal Relationship. While an agent referred to may do a great job, it is still about personalities and getting along with someone who is going to help you buy or sell something that costs tens of thousands of dollars. You may need someone who tells you what to do as opposed to someone who wants to be your friend? Choose wisely and in your best interest.
  3. Don't settle for the first person you meet. Check out at least 3. Remember that when you are interviewing candidates, it is not about whom you like the most, it is about who is going to work best on your behalf. If you are looking for a buyer's representative, I would not look for someone who is not a strong negotiator.
  4. Get it in writing. It is easier said than done, right!
  5. They all cost about the same. Hey everyone deserves an equal opportunity but the professional with years of experience and numerous transactions charges the same as the guy fresh out of the box? To be fair, the green ones may have fewer clients and will have more time for you and willing to go the extra mile.
