Ok, so here's a story for you. I'm on floor one morning and I receive a phone call from a potential buyer/client. He wants to see one of my listings asap because he says he's going to buy it. After engaging in a conversation with him, asking him if he's currently working with anyone and getting a no to that question, I refer him to a lender for a pre-approval. Everything goes as planned, he calls me back that afternoon to tell me he's been approved and we're ready to go. We go look at the property the next day, write an offer and the rest is history. That afternoon I'm sitting at home checking my email and I receive a phone call from a REALTOR in my office. She proceeds to explain to me how she was supposed to show my house earlier that day and she overheard me saying I was showing it and she just had a feeling that my buyer was her buyer that she had been working with. Well, guess what, it was so we dealt with this in-office. So, how do we stop this? I thought I asked all the right questions. I asked if he was working with anyone else. He never indicated that he had even called about any properties.
