In the city of Tracy California, the number of available properties has reached a critically low point. In the under 200K price range the competition is fierce and multiple offers (as in double digit multiple) is the norm.
Recently while showing one of these properties, another agent and her clients walked in on us. She handed me her card and said “hope you don't mind” but we are in a hurry. Truth is I did mind. I have always been taught that if you go to show a property and another agent is inside, wait in your car and once the door is locked and the key returned to the lock box it is your turn to show the property.
Then, another agent walks in, says she is from the Bay Area, doesn't have lock box access but she is going to show the property anyway. I am now freaking out inside but showing a calm exterior to my clients.
Eventually they left as did my clients and I. I apologized for what had happened and explained that I would never do what they had just done. So, please help me and tell me how you would have handled the situation.
