Choosing a professional Realtor® should be considered one of the most important decisions, much as choosing your family doctor, attorney or financial advisor.

 Real estate holdings are considered by most to be the foundation of your estate, the shelter for your family and indeed one of your most important investments. It is important then, to choose a professional who will advise you wisely and by all means, keep your personal goals at the forefront of all decisions. The trademark name, Realtor®, is a designation earned only after mandatory education requirements are met and a code of ethics oath or professional standard set forth by the Ontario Real Estate Association has been sworn. Look for the Realtor® trademark, as not every real estate practitioner has made this commitment.

It is important to interview the professional you entrust with your valuable investment to ascertain their specific knowledge and experience just as you would a doctor about to perform an operation on you or one of your loved ones. To that end we have outlined below a list of fundamental questions that a professional Realtor® worthy to market your property should be able to answer.

We hope you find this guide valuable and helpful in making the right choice for the professional to assist you in accomplishing your personal real estate goals.
