How do you recognize a good real estate agent on Bonaire?

Bonaire is a small Island with many different Real Estate agents, therefore it's not difficult to find one. But how do I find a good real estate agent on Bonaire? Maybe not entirely objective from my point of view, but there are no 'bad' agents on bonaire.

There are brokers that do not suit you, there are brokers who do not have the correct lots or houses in their portfolio for you and there are brokers that have a way of working that does not suit you. The challenge is finding a real estate agent that suits you. Once you've found that agent, you know it's a good one.

Therefore, take the time to talk with various real estate agents first to see which real estate agent is the most suitable for you and who you connect best with.

A good agent will take the time for you, listen to you and has a good knowledge of all there is offered for sale on Bonaire. Not only his/her own listings, but also those of the fellow real estate agents. There are also many houses that are in the so-called pacific sales and are not to be published but a good real estate agent knows that they are on sale and to whom he/she will offer this property to. A good real estate agent doesn't only see if the property suits you, but also looks whether the area where the property is located meets your wishes, family situation and interests.

A good agent will take the time to show you different options and is willing to do that with you while driving around the island. Once you have made your selection and proceed to purchase, a good real estate agent does the negotiations for you, takes care of all the necessary papers and contracts, controls the notary and gives advice and support as it is, about any additional matters when purchasing a home, like insurance, taxes, and energy services.
