When Agents Don’t Know What Every Seller Should

avatarthumbnail.jpgI’m going to blatantly steal and idea from Seth Meyers and Saturday Night Live for a special edition of a segment they/I call “Really?”

Really? You’re a licensed, theoretically professional real estate agent and you don’t answer the phone when your listing specifically says to call you to arrangeĀ  a showing on a home? And wait, this is your home? With its own home office and you still can’t answer the phone? Really?

And when someone decides to pull a Farragut and damn the torpedoes, even though you let the agent and his clients in, you opt to huddle in that home office rather than take a walk around the block? Really?

Because even a beginning agent learns the first time that he or she shows a house with the sellers present that buyers are less comfortable talking and looking when the owners are around. But somehow you either don’t know this or don’t really care? Really?

You represent sellers for a living but don’t follow the basics yourself. And you’re still going to give others advice you don’t follow. Really?
