I just learned something new... an AH moment for me.
I've been trying to get in contact with a Realtor for DAYS regarding a property he has listed. BUT first I need to get the LOCK BOX CODE from him to GET IN, as he HAD put the WRONG one in the MLS!!! This has been going on for FIVE DAYS. I call his office and am told, daily, he is IN a meeting (this dude must be terribly important).
My clients are getting TICKED to say the least, so she calls his office (and does NOT say she is working with ME) and says she wants to see this particular property. Mr. IMPORTANT calls her right back...BUT says he is very busy, and gives her the CODE to get into the REPO and look at it heself.
Okay, times are changing I know, but giving out LOCKBOX CODES, regardless if it's a REPO or not, to me, is just plain old WRONG on so many levels!!
Fellow Realtors, are you experiencing this?
*** The MLS BOARD President got back to me: NO, A REALTOR CANNOT GIVE OUT ANY CODE TO A CONSUMER.
