An agent must encourage conversation and step back. You can take notes when appropriate, but ask if they mind. They will know you are listening to them.

One essential quality to look for in an agent is good energy. Are they down to earth and positive? Do you feel that you can trust them? Energy reveals everything about a person, and relationships are everything in real estate. You will grow especially close with your agent during the transaction. Make sure it is someone you trust, feel good about and has good energy.
