Imagine you and your main squeeze packing your bags and heading off to vacation for 2 weeks. No appointments, no schedules, LOVE IT! You're leaving tecnology & real estate BEHIND!
Who watches and cares for your business while you're gone? How do you compensate them? Imagine a fellow agent asking you to "watch their business" while they head out of town for 2 weeks.
14 listings 3 current contracts 2 buyers looking, (one who loves short sales & refuses to pay over 50k) the other a self proclaimed home inspector who carries a 20 inch long maglight & voice recorder. Title companies, inspections, text messages, emails.... you get the idea.
The agent who's watching your files isn't only managing their business, they're now being asked to manage YOURS. How do you compensate the agent who babysits your files and problems?
A buddy of mine just told me that he watched a fellow agents files for 10 days. When the other Realtor got back from their cruise (bloated like a toad) they brought back 2 wine glasses and a $75 gift card. My buddy worked his tail off for the other agent. While she stuffed her chops with endless buffets & gallons of margaritas he showed her short sale buyers 20+ homes, showed lease properties, got chewed out by a seller & attended 2 closings.
Wine glasses and a $75 gift card. For ALL that?
Last year me and the wife disconnected from technology for over 3 weeks. We vacationed in Africa. While we hunted for Rhino's and danced with the natives my Realtor friend looked after my files as if they were his own. I paid him 10% of everything and anything that closed because of his efforts. I also paid him $1,000.00 plus an offer of an additional $500 if all of my clients and customers were complaintLESS.
Are you taking advantage of agents who watch your files? Are you being lazy with the files you're watching? What do you expect to get paid for handling another agents affairs?
