Let's just get one thing STRAIGHT about property-showing protocol....
Let's just get one thing STRAIGHT about property-showing protocol....
OK, this has happened too many times to the point where I have to put my foot down.
When another agent is showing a vacant property, DO NOT walk in on the showing and trample all over the place with your client.
Proper protocol is to wait until the other agent is finished showing the property.
Why? Because each client is rightfully due a private, quiet showing on the property.  It's very important that they have those few minutes not only to see if this could possibly become a home for them, but all agents know that there are private conversations between client and agent that occur discussing their concerns about the property.
I had an instance a few months ago where I was showing a vacant, flipped property.  In the middle of the showing, another agent just barged in showing the property to clients, yapping all over the place.  When she left, I locked the front door so that my clients were not disturbed again during their showing.  They really liked this house and were spending an extra few minutes there.
Lo and behold, this Lame-O agent comes back 5 minutes ... more
