How to Find the Right Real Estate Agent that Fits Your Needs in Playa del Carmen
Try to contact a few. Companies in this area are notorious for not responding quickly. Reach out to what appear to be some of the top companies specializing in the area you’re looking and see who responds, and how long it takes to answer a couple of simple questions. You are going to want to work with someone who can address your questions or comments quickly. Make a short list.
Look Them Up
Go online and see what others have had to say. Are there online reviews? Do they have a website? Do they have a Facebook page? Search their name in Google. And consider the source of some of the opinions. Remember, angry people often make the most noise, and are usually unreasonable, so be wary of 1 or 2 negative comments amongst loads of positives.
Review And Narrow
Review your findings and narrow down these agents to just a couple who look like they will be able to help you the best. Does it feel like you’re talking with a friend in your correspondence? You’re likely to spend a lot of time with this person, and put a lot of trust in them, are they someone you would want to call a friend after your purchase?
Book An Appointment
Call your shortlist of agents to book an appointment or schedule a phone call and ask how they’d help you navigate a real estate purchase in Mexico.
