This afternoon my seller called me and said a woman knocked on his door. She said her husband was parking the car and they wanted to come in to look. My seller asks the woman if she has a Realtor® and she eagerly gives her Realtors® business card to him.
My seller is great at following my instructions :) He hands the woman HER Realtors® business card and hands her mine while telling the woman she needs to let her Realtor® call me to make an appointment.
Please educate your clients!
- My MLS agent instructions say to call the LISTOR (me) before showing. It does not say send your clients alone to the listing and knock on the door and ask the seller if they can go in.
- Educate your sellers to NOT let just anyone in the home. I've heard of people posing as photographers and knocking on doors to take mls pictures. And they were just there to case the place.
- Educate your buyers to call you if they want to look at a listing you sent them (the woman had a listing sheet in her hand) Do YOUR job!
Now, I don't know if the Realtor® just sent them on their own or not but no matter what... it was rude to just pop in on my seller and ask if he can open the house for them.
Educate your clients....or GET educated!
The nerve, huh?
