At a minimum, you want an agent who has access to your local MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and the big syndicated sites like Zillow and Realtor.com. Today over 70% of buyers start their search on the Internet. You also want an agent with an online presence. Look at their websites and see if they have an independent online following of their own.
