Another Way I Lost a Listing

Real Estate Agent with CEO - Dale Ross Realty Group 0316603

Ok, I go on about 110 listing appointments per year and get about 73% of them. Some of them I decline and some of them list with a higher promised price, and then some sellers just don't like my style. But last week, I lost one for the first time for this reason.

The other agent actually agreed to donate 8 hours of their time to help the seller physically move out of the house after it sells. I have been upstaged! I coud not help chuckling audibly when the seller informed me of their decision to go with that agent. 8 hours of my time is worth about the same amount as the commission would have been and although I am called a mover and a shaker, that's not the kind of mover I am.

I admire the agents commitment to keep from starving as the agent has two other listings and 4 sales for 2011. On this listing, I have to say...Better him than me!

Which way is the value of your house headed?

How much is your house worth today?

You had me when you said you go on 110 listing appts. ... that is pretty good!  Sounds like you are the right kind of mover and shaker!  Kathy

Wow, that's a new one. I offer a complementary home staging consultation with my new listings, but helping them move? No way!

         Good for you! You are right 8 hours is a long time; but you know what good for that agent you got to admit that is pretty creative of him or her! Well there is always a 1st time especially in Real Estate. Hopefully we can do another deal soon!
