I was looking in the MLS and noticed this comment in the agent comment section of a listing: "Anyone can open an escrow but only professionals close them". Well, I look up at the picture area and notice that there is not a single photo, not ONE! So , I think its very ironic that he is talking about professionalism and can not even put up a single photo. So I leave him this message, "Anyone can NOT put a photo in the MLS, professionals DO!" In blue is his response and then again my response. He is a REO agent and I could not help to give him an earful and actually to all the REO agents out there that are guilty of being horrible lazy agents or just too busy!
Thank you for bringing the lack of photos to my attention. They are now posted and available for you viewing pleasure.
I apparently struck a nerve with my agent remarks and I sincerely hope that you are not one of the seemingly multitude of agents that don’t seem to understand how to complete an escrow that I am referring to with that remark.
At any rate, there are currently 10 offers that have been submitted on this property, several are cash. Please keep in mind that this one will not qualify for low down or FHA financing. The only FHA that the seller will consider would be an FHA rehab loan.
Well, I have closed approx. 700 transactions in the last 11 years so I don't think this is the case for me. ID:PORZEJAC. I just thought it was ironic that someone would be talking about professionalism and could not take the time to put a picture up. Shame on the banks for giving too many REO listings to one agent! It seems they don't have the time to put pictures up, return phone calls or even take a live phone call. I do have a problem right now with REO agents who are getting paid good money and can not do any of those things. I just called on a REO and they hooked me up to a call center in India, with 1 agent handling over 100 listings and the call center answering questions about a property here in the USA. Our industry is eliminating listing agents themselves by being lazy and with REO agents who don't do the above. The way some REO agents are acting about answering phone calls I'd at least take the India call center over them. Jacki O.
