Agents that own homes should read this.
RULES TO FOLLOW
There are certain things I just cannot figure out and maybe I can shed some light on this for you that own property that just does not seem to sell.
What you are about to read is a true accounting of the past two weeks.
My client calls me and says I would like to look at this particular home as it fits her search perfectly. Can you call and get us in this Sunday. I look at the listing, see that it requires 24 hr notice and with 48 hrs in hand call the listing broker,
who happens to also be the owner.......
After no response to my voice mail I call the office number and leave a message on Saturday (was told by the office they would get in touch with her at home) hoping to see it on Sunday.
Well after a few showings on Sunday I get a call on Thursday from................you guessed it the listing agent broker telling me my message went into her spam folder and she did not get the office message till Wednesday night.
That alone is funny because I did not send an e-mail I called .....twice.
Regardless we tried to set up an appointment for the up coming weekend set the day and time and then I heard the following, call me to remind me as there are workers there getting the house ready and they will need to be gone by then.
Let's see if I can get this straight,
You did not return my phone call's all weekend
Waited till Thursday to call me back and in a nutshell lied
I am suppose to call you to remind you that we are coming.
YOU OWN THE HOME, YOU SHOULD BE CALLING ME WITH A BOX OF CANDY AT THIS POINT
May I remind you your home has been on the market for 265 days, is slightly over priced and should be ready for show.
SO FOR THOSE AGENTS THAT OWN PROPERTY
Call agents back that actually wish to show your property
Have it show ready the day you list it, after all it is yours
Have the home available for showings
Now these are basically the same rules that apply to every listing ....................but if you are the owner / broker
do me a favor.........................
DON'T CALL ME BACK you deserve to have your home sit there.
