10 Questions to Ask a Real Estate Agent
If you’re interviewing other Realtors you should be asking them these 10 important questions.
1. What is your company's sales record?
Nobody has sold more homes in the Kamloops area over the last 20 years than Vince and his team at River City Realty.
2. What separates you from your compeition? Why should I list my home with you?
Our innovative team, exclusive systems and programs will help you sell your home faster and for more money. River City Realty is comprised of 6 full-time licensed professionals, and 3 full-time office administrators, each of whom is responsible for a specific process in the selling of your home. Here's the best part... you get our team of professionals for the same price as hiring a single agent.
3. What are your marketing plans for my home? Does your office manager place restrictions on your marketing?
Team River City’s innovative 21 Point Marketing & Satisfaction Guarantee offers numerous exclusive consumer programs which will ensure your home sells faster and for more money. As the owners of River City Realty Ltd., Vince and Katrina have the power and control to promote your property as required. We will outspend all area reps to promote your home regardless of its size.
4. What have you sold in my area?

6. How many Buyers are you currently working with? Can you provide a list?
We are currently working with over 300 Buyers on our exclusive VIP Buyer Profile System. We do extensive buyer lead generation and pre-qualify these buyers before they view your home. We then match our buyers and sellers together based on their criteria.

Absolutely! Our agents will carefully explain all documents to you, prior to asking you to sign them. At no time will you be pressured to sign something without being able to review it first.
10. What if I am unhappy with the service?
Customer service is very important to us. That is why we have a satisfaction guarantee. If you are not 100% satisfied with listing and selling your home with us, you can cancel your listing at anytime with no obligation and without cost!
