Or better yet... why would I want to use a Real Estate Agent that doesn't go to all the Open Houses for Agents??
Unless your Real Estate Agent has asked you if it is ok to host an Open House just for Agents you probably didn't know that there were such events. These Open Houses usually include lunch of some sorts and are a great way to let other Agents from many different companies see what products are out there. They are also great ways to get feedback on how the house looks, curb appeal, and price.
Another concept that has just started to pick up steam is someone hosting an event where Real Estate Agents present their listings to other agents at one place using pictures. This allows the agent to showcase the property to 40 or more agents at one time.
But why would you want your agent to see other Real Estate Agents listings??? First of all it helps to see what the competition is and what changes need to be done to maximize your listing. Secondly, if you are looking for a Buyer's Agent, it educates the Agent as to what is out there. It is much easier to show a home that you have seen and heard about personally than one you only see in the pictures in the listing and the Agents comments. And thirdly, it shows that the Agent is involved in the industry not just working as few hours as is necessary.
