Seriously Irritated

Real Estate Agent with Cutler Real Estate

This is really a minor frustration in the grand scheme of things, I know it, but I can't help being ticked off.

I've been sitting on a listing agreement for something like two weeks waiting for the AM, or and Assistant AM to sign all the required documents needed to enter into the MLS.  As soon as I recieved the listing agreement, I faxed everything to the AM, and immediately followed up with an email.  I've been following up with calls and emails every day since.

The thing that's starting to piss me off, is I'm getting these stupid auto-emails tell me to upload the MLS sheet.  Well, duh, can't do B, until A is done.  And today one of the AMs sent an email personally asking me to upload the damn MLS sheet.  Keep in mind, each email, as well as the fax cover sheet, specifically state that these are needed docs and that I, and my company can be fined for missing docs.

This is a company I've listed for several times, and they are good.  This is a first for this particular AM, however.  None of the others were not this slow/ignorant/PITA.  Obviously I don't want to jeopordize the listing, it's actually not too horrible, and in a nice area, but JESUS.  I have 4 closings this month, BPOs out the wazoo, on serious pain meds, and am having unplanned, but very needed emergency-ish surgey like, tomorrow.  I really don't need the added crap of having to explain something 10 million times to some dude 3000 miles away.

The MLS input sheets, one of mine just wants seller initials, the other wants a signature, Lead Based Paint Addendum, we also, per the state, need a signed Cunsumer Guide to Agency, per our office: what can be disclosed to a potential buyer (minimum acceptable purchase amount, any pre-list inspections, wht the seller paid for the property - this is actually public record, but still on our generic sheet) and the seller's property disclosre, if they'll sign it.

I never heard of an MLS requiring docs on a listing. A signed listing agreement and a property disclosure exemption is all you should need. The lead based paint is a no brainer and could be signed by you and your managing broker.

Sorry to hear about the ER Surgery hope all turns out well

Ohio is kind of... in the Dark Ages for a lot of things still.  And it's a huge pain for them to get things changed.  That's the only explanation I can think of as to why things are the way they are here.

The surgery, not too big of deal, and quite a bit less being done than the last 3.  *sigh*

Katie,  deep breath needed!   Sounds like a pain but try not to aggravate yourself about it. I would probably feel the same way, but better than no listings, right?  Hope all is well, sounds like you need a little break! I managed 2 days off last week, what a relief!

Ha!  I took several, Karen!  It's hard not to get aggravated, and not bite the hand the feeds ya, but sometimes, BLAH.  I know AMs are busy, most of mine are handling upwards of 300 files each.  It just kills me when they want stuff done like, yesterday, and can't seem to do the things we need done.  Patience.  Patience. Patience.
