I sent you a showing request yesterday @#*%

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

One of my newer agents got a phone call, today, from an irate agent.

"I sent you a showing request yesterday... and you haven't responded"

"I'm sorry", she replied "I never got your request."

"I should report you to your seller!" the narsty agent yelled!

"Well.... you're talking to the seller", the agent replied.  It's her own property.

I love it when that happens.

Good one, Alan. One reason I like ShowingTime... fewer issues with "I asked for a showing and no one responded."

Rudeness has not business in our business.  Always give someone the benefit of the doubt before you start to question their integrity.

Curious...did you allow her the showing. She sounds like a real dream to work with.

Morning Alan.

What a great one-liner.  Now, my question is will she turn him over for threatening to go over the line talking to the seller, without the consent of the listing agent?

Good morning Alan. This is wonderful. I guess that agent won't be showing that home now.

Love it, people should learn to treat everyone as they want to be treated before they make a judgement.

Nice response!  Why do some agents act like that?
