Either one can be a great fit! Just make sure you meet with them and they are in tune with your wants & needs and have the time on their plate to deal with your transaction.

An agent is a fiduciary of the broker and their brokerage. So technically you are always working with the broker even if you are working with one of their agents. The broker is acting on your behalf to the extent that you have agreed to regarding real estate transactions.

When it comes to selling your home, you have two options: working with a real estate agent or hiring a broker. While both can help you sell your property, working with a broker has a number of advantages over working with just an agent. Firstly, brokers are licensed professionals who have passed a more rigorous licensing exam than agents. They also have more education and experience in the real estate industry. This means they have a more thorough understanding of the market and can offer better advice to help you sell your home quickly and for the best price. Secondly, brokers have access to a wider network of potential buyers than agents. Brokers typically work for larger real estate firms and have connections with other brokers and agents across the country. This means they can market your property to a larger audience, increasing the likelihood of finding a qualified buyer quickly. Thirdly, brokers can offer more comprehensive services than agents. They often have a team of professionals working with them, including appraisers, inspectors, and attorneys. This means they can handle all aspects of the sale, from pricing your home to negotiating the contract and closing the deal. Overall, working with a broker can save you time and money, and help you sell your home faster and for the best price. While an agent may be able to help you sell your home, a broker offers more expertise, resources, and services to ensure a successful sale.

Both an agent or a broker are fine. The title of Broker often means more knowledge or experience though not always. You will want to talk with a couple and determine which is better suited to provide you an good experience and knowledgeable about the market you are in.
