Hi everyone. I eventually want to buy a house and was wondering where's the best place to look for a relator ? Should i get a referal from a friend ? or should i go out hunting for a fresh relator. I've heard getting a good relator is half the job. Whats the best way to go about it ?

First you need to spell it correctly. It is spelled r-e-a-l-t-o-r.

Second, it is best to find a referral. Make sure that your referral said that the agent was always available for questions and concerns, gave frequent updates, negotiated hard on your behalf and had your best interest in mind. There are many un-employable people that said, "hey, I could be a Realtor!" If all you have to do is pass a test, which by the way is practically answered for you at most schools, then any idiot can be a Realtor. And, trust me there are a lot of "idiot" realtor's out there. It amazes me how pompous some Realtors get even though they have never gone to college, operated a successful business etc. Yet, some act as though they are the "cat's meow." There you have it. BE CAREFUL.

As a Reasl Estate Agent myself, I would suggest that you look for a refferal from a friend, family member or a co-worker. Secondly, make sure whoever you decide to use is familiar with the area you are looking to buy in so that if there is any questions about that area they are able to answer them for you. Hope this helps.

To find reputable brokers, your first step should be talking to friends or neighbors and asking for recommendations. Make sure you find a real estate agent who is very familiar with your area. Look for agents who either live in your area, or who make a lot of sales in your community.

You may want to consider using an agent who is a realtor. Realtors are licensed by the state and by the National Association of Realtors, an industry organization. Members have to agree to a code of ethics.

I agree that the key to finding a good Realtor is through someone you know! Looking for one that is attentive to your wants and needs, and experienced in your marketplace. A good buyer's agent can also help!

If you are buying an older home- especially wanting to save money - there is a GREAT FHA mortgage program- that replaces your outdated system with a brand new one including a warranty. All with no out of pocket costs!!! Look at this site for information:
