Where do you stand, accompanied showings or not? This discussion is open to Seller's Agents, Buyer's Agents, Buyers and Sellers. Where do you stand? Do you prefer accompanied showings or not? What is your experience, and why would you recommend one over the other to your clients, or your agent? I will tell you my preferences, if you tell me yours.
