Listing Agents Who CONSISTENTLY Double Side The Sale

While I read Are Home Sellers Hurt When The Listing Agent Double Sides The Sale? regarding pocket listings, I was thinking about listing agents who consistently double side the sale on MLS listed properties.

It is a real treat when the listing agent receives both sides of a transaction, Sellers and Buyers commission on the sale.  But when you think about the odds of that happening, it's not very likely to happen.  You see, it's just me, the listing agent marketing my listing trying to find A Buyer VS hundreds of agents with Buyers interested in my area.

I am predominately a listing agent, and I very rarely get the opportunity, maybe once a year, to work with both sides.  But when I see listing agents who consistently have both sides on MLS listed properties, it get's me to thinking.  What are your thoughts?

HA!  The methods used by listing agents to quash, discourage, reject co-op offers are too many to list.

Don't return agents' phone calls for showing.  Of course, the listing agent is the "showing contact" in the MLS.

Receive written offers and "sit on them" waiting for an in-house offer.

No lock box.

Don't permit the listing to be entered in the IDX. 

So many, too many to even list.

Lenn, you're right.  Thank goodness that here the public remarks can't have any mention of the listing agent or how to get in contact with them.
