There are over 650 real estate agencies and 2.500 real estate agents or property consultants around Marbella and some of them are better than the others. Follow these three steps and you are likely to hire one of the better ones.
Test their market and area knowledge. How is the property market around Marbella today? What is an average price of a 3-bedroom penthouse in Nueva Andalucia? Where should I eat in Elviria? Remember that you are hiring knowledge. If your property consultant does not have the required knowledge they are adding very little value to your property search.
Ask about the purchase process. What are the steps? Do I need a solicitor? What papers must I have? You should know what to expect and a good property consultant will tell you. If they don't they either don't know or don't care - both of which are red flags which will cost you time and money later on.
Check if they listen. A good property consultant will listen to your wants and needs and demonstrate that back to you. The better they understand you the better properties you will see. Make sure you hire a property consultant who listens well.
