Debbie: This is a good list of things that consumers need to take into account when looking to hire an agent. Age alone should not matter.

Ideal breakdown of this topic Debbie. I ran into similar questions, when I was first starting - I sold my first home at 18, just out of licensing. Experience sure counts but nobody can "fake" enthusiasm either! Thanks - Steve

Debbie, Having an online presence is important as well as keeping your information and bio current and accurate, since many are reading what you write and say online.

You said it Jerry. I will add a current photo that looks like you and keeping the profile relevant to what is happening today and not just years ago is what people want to see.
