There is always another way to skin the cat in this business. Recently we received a phone call from a prospective buyer to see one of our listings they had found on Realtor.com. After seeing it, the home was not exactly what they expected. They said they had been looking for quite some time.
When asked if they were working with another agent the reply was "Sort of".
What did "Sort of" mean? The buyers knew an agent who we will call Suzy Q. This agent is a friend of a friend. Suzy Q said she would be glad to help them when they were ready to buy a home. They did not have a buyer's agency with this agent nor had she shown them any homes.
Suzy Q told the buyers to go to open houses and do searches on Realtor.com. If they found one that interested them on Realtor.com call that listing agent and have them show you the house.
Suzy Q also told them to give HER a call if they found one they liked. She'd write the contract and help them negotiate the price.
I guess Suzy Q's business plan called for reclining on the chaise, watching Soaps and eating Bon Bons, while other agents did her work for her.
