There are plenty of articles about interviewing listing agents, but it's often tough to know what to ask a buyer's agent. One of our new clients had some great questions they asked a previous client of ours and I thought they might be helpful. By the way, we were thrilled by our client's answers about working with my husband Kyle! (also shown below)
