We have all run into “that agent”
The one who doesn’t answer the phone. Or respond to texts. Or emails. Or carrier pigeons. Often the same agent that returns your call or texts you at 10 pm. See also: “I have a real job” agent.
Then there’s the one that reminds you of their years of experience when you try to get them to do something the right way, like maybe sending a completed offer. Gasp! The nerve of you to suggest they may need to actually fill in all of the blanks, right?
What about the listing agent that doesn’t know anything about the property they stuck a sign in front of?
Oh! And the agent that doesn’t know the contract, so he wants to make busy work for you by sending addendums or amendments that say the same thing that’s already in the purchase agreement.
For good measure, we can’t leave out the agent who skirts fair housing laws when she starts asking questions about your client. You know…”so who are they?”, “what kind of work do they do?”, “do they have children?” – all of those red flags that make you wonder if they are looking for a reason to not accept a perfectly acceptable offer. Generally, I find that these are old school agents that never gave up the old way of qualifying clients and refuse to move into the 20th century (forget the 21st, that’s just too much to ask!).
Don’t be that agent.
Do better. Be better. Set the bar a little higher than this, please.
