What to ask a Realtor when buying an Eichler home

Want to do some competitive research? We encourage it! We’ve specialized in Eichler homes for decades, and we know what it takes to be a true Eichler expert.

Here are questions we recommend you ask potential agents. Remember, experience matters when it comes to buying and selling a unique commodity like Eichler homes.

  • How many Eichler homes have you helped clients buy or sell this year? How many in total, over the course of your career?

  • Will I be working with you directly or someone on your team?

  • What is your offer acceptance rate?

  • What is your bidding strategy for Eichler homes? As an agent, how do you help clients get an accepted offer without overpaying?

  • Do you know about upcoming Eichler listings or off-market opportunities?

  • Are you a member of the Eichler Network or other Eichler community groups?

  • Can I speak with some of your most recent Eichler clients about their experience working with you?
