With over almost 13,000 brokers in the greater Montreal/Quebec province, it can be tricky to find the person who is up to the job to sell your biggest asset.
Should i use a family member/friend who is a broker to sell my home?
This is the most common as almost everyone knows someone who is a real estate broker. While it can be tempting to work with a broker who is a friend or a family member, this might not always be in your best interests. Trying not to offend the related party, you need to choose a broker who you feel can do the job and meet your goals. If something goes wrong, you might end up resenting the person for a deal which has gone sour!
If you're taking this approach you also become very "locked into a personal contract" with the related party selling your home. No one wants to offend a family member or friend if their home isn't selling and they want to explore a different route or different broker.
Someone you have worked with in the past
If you're well seasoned in real estate, always keep in mind brokers which have done a good job selling your properties in the past. Maybe they don't specialize in your area, but they might know someone who does and can continue to give you a high level of service, professionalism and reliability.
