I’d still do my own comps while taking the realtors comps under consideration.
Explain your experience with RE and see if the reply from the realtor is positive or negative. This should give you the clues as to the open-mindedness of the real estate agent.
Remember, a realtor generally represents the seller. Maybe you should be looking for a buyers broker. In my area, they are listed in the yellow pages. They represent the buyer.
