How to Choose an Equestrian REALTOR

Some horse farm buyers often make the mistake of simply going with the real estate agent who is carrying a listing they’re interested in.  Who you choose to represent you is very important - you don’t have to use the listing agent to represent you.  Many times that listing agent is not an equestrian or an equestrian real estate specialist.  

And, having a separate buyer's agent, particularly one who specializes in equestrian property, will give you a representative who is acting in your interest, not the sellers.

Additionally, I am sure you can understand the importance of working with an agent who owns horses and understands the needs of horses. 

So who should you choose?  It’s always a good idea to interview several REALTORS® before selecting an agent.  Ask what professional designations he or she has, such as Accredited Buyer Representative or Certified Residential Specialist.  These designations indicate an agent has additional education to help serve you better.  Also, ask about their equestrian experience.

Other questions you might want to ask:

  • How much experience do you have with horse property?
  • How much knowledge do you have about the local real estate market?
  • Do you own horses?
  • How long have you been a REALTOR in this area?
  • Do you have testimonials from past equestrian clients?
  • What kind of services do you provide?
  • Can you help with farm financing?

I'd be glad to answer these questions and any others you might have - just give me a call or text me at 615-969-1460. You can also request my E-book, How to Buy the Perfect Equestrian Property
