Hi folks. I’ve read a couple of posts recently that have left me scratching my head. Both were about listing agents and their “unethical” practice of not handling multiple offers according to the Buyer agent’s expectations.
In the comments on these posts the listing agents were called lazy, unethical, unprofessional, bad, rude, unfair and greedy. The consensus was that “The listing agent was not looking out for the…

Hi folks. I read an article recently where an agent was calling other agents lazy because they didn’t work with rentals. Supposedly we should do anything to make a buck whether we enjoy it or not.

Hi folks. I did an interview and one of the listeners posed a question that has been on my mind ever since. The question was "How do you learn your market?". It caught me a little off gaurd. Not that I don't know the answer but that someone in our business had to ask the question.

Hi folks. Recently I read an article questioning whether an agent taking a listing 70 miles away is doing a disservice to the Seller. Most of the commenters agree they are. I don’t.…Continue

Hi folks. I read a recent featured post that was about a buyer’s agent asking the listing agent to increase the co-broke prior to showing the property to the buyer. There were over 200 comments and with the exception of a very small handful…Continue

Hi folks. Today I want to talk a little bit about keeping the listing. Lack of good communication skills and/or systems is the number 1 reason why Sellers complain about their agents. In fact, just about every time I go meet with a Seller who has just had their listing expire "lack of communication" is what they complain about.

How do you react when a Seller or Buyer asks you to give them a portion of your commission? Do you immediately get defensive? Do you start explaining how your commission is split and how many expenses you have as a licensed Real Estate agent?…

The co-broke is an offer of compensation. It should be used to SUPPLEMENT the arrangement you should have already made with your buyer. Your fee, compensation, commission is your responsibility....NOT the listing agents.,
If agents choose to work for the co-broke only then they will always be at the mercy of the Listing Broker.…Continue

Hi folks. I bet you've asked this question before. "Why is the Seller ignoring my Buyer's offer?" You just spent a week showing properties to your Buyer. You wrote what you thought was a good offer, submitted it and then........nothing!
So you do what any good agent would do.....you run to Active Rain and write a rant about the SOB Listing agent!…Continue
