How to Find a Santa Monica Real Estate Agent

By Ray Lyon August 1, 2021

You live in the Santa Monica area and want to sell your home… or you are moving there and want to find a Santa Monica real estate agent. In either case, we’re more than glad to help.

There are a few ways that you can go about this. Fortunately, none of them are complicated and at least one of them should work.

Your Network of Family and Friends

Perhaps a family member or a friend has had a positive experience with the Santa Monica real estate market. They may have found a perfect real estate agent that guided them through the whole process and made it so simple. They can’t recommend them highly enough.

This can be like going on a blind date, though. What they may like in an agent may be the opposite of what you want. You can meet the agent, but trust your gut on whether they are a good fit for you.

Your Neighborhood

Perhaps other people in your area are selling their homes or are looking to go to Santa Monica. Take a look at who they are working with. Take notes.

Another thing that you can do is travel around the neighborhoods that you are interested in and see if there are any open houses. See who the real estate agents are and take their numbers. Talk to them later and see if any are a match.

Online

The internet is a big resource for something like this. Do a search for “Santa Monica Real Estate Agents” and see what pops up. Take a look at the reviews – though it’s good to keep an open mind when reading them since some people can have an agenda.

You can look at the listings that these agents have put up. This can save you some time when it comes to driving around the neighborhoods – though there is something to be said for being able to see things with your own eyes and not rely on photos.

One, or all, of these options may net you success. Talk to these agents and find out what their track record is. Find out what their philosophies are in either buying or selling and seeing if they align with yours.

Treat this like a job. If you make a mistake. you may wind up paying too much for a place or getting too little in a sale. Save yourself trouble and do your due diligence.
