Sorry Listing Agent No Feedback For You, I Rep the Buyer

Real Estate Agent with

Ok, let me get this straight. As the listing agent you represent the seller. As the buyer agent I represent the ummmm buyer. Now that we have that cleared up I think you'll understand why I won't provide you with feedback regarding the showing on your listing with the exception of either writing an offer or not. It is not my responsibility to potentially jeopardize my clients negotiating position by reminding you that the wallpaper choices are less than desirable or that the house smelled like maple syrup or that maybe they love the house and working out how to make it work. I don't blame you for trying, but try not to get too upset when I don't do your job for you.

Danny, I tend to agree with you for the most part. The only time I'll give feedback is if my clients have No interest what-so-ever on a home.

Thanks Eric. Yeah, I mean if we have no interest it's still related to price/condition. Feedback feels more like it's used by listing agents to get price reductions without being the messenger:)
