When you choose your personal real estate agent or salesperson, do you favour charisma or credentials ?

While personal magnetism is an asset, you might also ask about credentials.

A credential is an attestation of qualification, competence, or authority issued to an individual  by a third party with a relevant authority or assumed competence to do so.

Below are my real estate credentials.
