WHEN AGENTS DON'T RESPOND

 

incompetent agents 

It can be excruciating frustrating when that happens. Recently, I have a buyer who wanted to purchase a property that they were interested in. I called the agent and left a voicemail to have her called back in order to set up an appointment time to show the property to my client. She never responded. I proceeded to text her. Still no response. I called her office and no one is there to answer the phone and it went to a voicemail. I called her again and still no response. My client and I were getting annoyed at this agent due to her unprofessionalism.

The next morning I called her again. She did not pick up the phone. I called back 3 more times and eventually she picked up the phone and answered rather rudely. I asked about her property and the interest my client has in wanting to view it. She inquire as to what time and to inform her. I told her that my client will be available the following day to view it. She said to confirm it with my client and to call her back as a 24 hours notice is required for showing.

By the way, I mentioned to her the company I was calling from just so she remembers. I called her back within 5 minutes knowing that it was difficult to get a hold of her. No response. Voicemail came on. I texted her and asked her that appointment was confirmed for the following day. I waited 2 hours, 3 hours...still no response. I called her office and voicemail came on. I emailed her and waited. Later that night, I received an email back stating that what was the appointment for. Women, what is wrong with you??!! Answer the phone and stay in business or get out of the business! I called her after reading the email and she did not respond. I texted and called her office again and still no response.

It has been 5 days now and I still have not heard back from her. My client is losing his patience with this incompetent agent and I don't blame them. How can an agent perform her fiduciary duty when she is NOT doing her job for the seller? Agents like this give a bad rap to realtors and did she intentionally do this as a wolf in sheep's clothings? Who knows but one thing for sure. She lost out on a solid buyer offer as my client refused to do business with slime balls such as her. She is not a neophyte as she has been in the business for 10 years. Just don't know what her issue is and don't care at this point. Neither do my client. We moved on.

Agents, pick up the phone and close the deal or get the heck out of the business and find a JOB.

Hi David,

The good news is that this agent is not in business now, and will not be in business long.

The bad news is that you have to put up with her or have your buyer buy another house

David. I try 3 times then I go directly to the broker or the homeowner. My time is too valuable to waste on incompetent agents. Just document your attempts then take action.

That doesn't make sense to me. Doesn't she want to get paid. I would have gone to her broker to get a response. We don't have time to waste like that nor do your clients.

Phil, just don't comprehend why this agent acted this way. Really odd..

Bob, guess she still wants to keep the listing.. :)

BB, strange thing is that no one ever answer the office phone when I called. They must have all been at a party doing the Macarena. boom chidi boom boom...

Linda, she must have won the lotto and realize this is chump change for her??!!
