Here we have encompassed some of the most important traits a successful and top real estate agent in the US can have. It is very important to understand the capabilities of a real estate agent even if you want to start your career in real estate.

Qualities of top realtor:-

Local Knowledge: — Make sure your elected real estate agent have good years of sales experience and success at selling homes in the area. Local knowledge of any area can help them to make a strong and successful strategy, to understand the neighborhood, to calculate the right home value. If the real estate agent is new in the city and has never sold a house in that area, it might be a drawback in this sense. Local knowledge is the main factor and characteristics of the real estate agents who want to be famous as a top realtor.
