I always say my husband is my worse client. He is an investor; he builds or remodels; I sell our properties along with my regular listings. Two issues cause his blood pressure to rise, and he goes into the danger zone. Agents show the house, walk out the door, leaving doors unlocked or lights on. The second issue is when agents ride around with clients, call and leave this message, "I have shown your home before and I know it is vacant. My clients would like to see inside, if I don't hear from you, I assume it is okay." His face turns red and I swear I see horns peeping through the skin (he has no hair). We happen to live close to one of my listings so when we walk the dogs in the evening, he easily spots the lighted rooms. How long does it take to double check that all lights are off? or the door is locked? I had one home up for sale on the waterway several years ago. When I walked in the front of the house, I could see the back door was wide open. It was a vacation home so I don't know how long the door was open. When I called the agent, he was not very apologetic, just said they were running late for the next appointment and he didn't get a chance to double check. As for the agent who is riding around, how unprofessional. Bill Gallagher has a saying, "wishing and praying...hauling and hoping" (close). I don't even ask for feedback because that agent doesn't have any idea whether that house will fit that client...sometimes I get that call from agents who have never seen the house. They don't have a clue.
Of course, my husband- client wants me to call that agent and chastise them for their negligence. Several times, I have had to remind him, we do want to sell and in this market, the seller nor the agent can afford to alienate any agent. Needless to say, I have to listen for days every time there is a transgression. I never told him about last Saturday when an agent let his clients into the house with a dog. He might fire me as his agent.
