I know, you've all probably experienced this type of an event. But I don't think it hurts to bring it up, AGAIN. Maybe...just maybe, the few Realtors that behave in this way, will finally recgonize themselves and CHANGE their ways. YEAH, WE'RE TALKIN' ABOUT YOU!
Yesterday I had a call from a Realtor who represents the buyer of a listing of mine--We're in escrow. "Hey," she says, "My buyer wants to meet her carpet guy at the house at 5PM, so he can measure the place. I'm going to drop her off, let her in, then have her LOCK up after they're done." (the home is VACANT). She, the Realtor, had an appointment to get to after she dropped off her client. HELLO, isn't her client an appointment?
I told the Realtor NO, that I could NOT allow her client to stay in the house and "lock up" after she is done. I told her I'd go down and wait with her client after she met and let her in. I'd also be there at 5.
The Realtor didn't even show up at 5PM to let her client in!!! OR call. I DID show up, thinking I was just there to lock up in a few minutes... tick-tock tick-tock. The carpet guy doesn't even show up for 1 1/2 hours! Need-less-to-say, this TICKS me off.
There are many ways to handle this, I'm sure: GIVE the other Realtor a piece of my mind. Let it go, as she's probably always been this kind of Realtor and ALWAYS will be. GIVE the other Realtor a piece of my mind.......
Any good suggestions out there or should I just let it roll off like water off a duck's back?
