Dear Agent, Welcome to Your Transaction

By
Real Estate Agent with Treasure Coast | Sotheby's International Realty

And would it kill you to participate?

I hate to complain..... but I will.  As the listing agent on a short sale transaction where all the problems are on the buyer's side - and let's face it, it's not the buyer's fault - it would be nice if the selling agent - ahem - would at least PRETEND to care, PRETEND to participate, PRETEND to actually earn the commission for the work I've had to do to cover for him.  Seriously, every time I call the dude, he's at the zoo, park or God-knows-where with screaming kids in the background.  When I finally called him out on it and asked if he was going to help out, he had the nerve to yell at ME!!  Whaaaaaaat????

Yes, Mr. Buyer's Agent, this is a much smaller commission than you might be used to receiving. And is that really the point?  I mean I have a seller here who's already moved because you said we were closing the last week in December, but you really never had a clue, did you? 

And, I'm sure you have a lovely first time buyer who is anxiously awaiting moving into their new home and putting on the elbow grease to make this house a home. 

And where are you??  Petting the giraffes? Hope you're having a nice day while I pick up the pieces.
