Today I read a post written by Maria Gilda Racelis "Is It Okay if We Borrow The Pictures You Took of Our Property?" This is a post where her and a seller have parted ways for whatever reason as we sometimes do and now the sellers are asking if the new agent they now want to use can use her pictures from the previous listing.
This seems to me to show a feeling from the get go that they are not confident in the abilities of their new agent. When you are hiring someone especially a licensed professional, you do so because you have faith in their abilities. If you start off with a lapse of faith then how do you think things will proceed from there? Especially if someone you hire is willing to use the work of another?
When you decide to hire a professional to market your home you want 100% confidence in that individual that they will take the ball and run with it. That you as their partner will be there to back them up and help them make vital decisions concerning the actual sale. They are your salesperson, photography supervisor, chief negotiator, work oversee person and soooo much more... The list can go on for days in some deals.
When you hire an agent whether to buy or sell a home BE 100% CONFIDENT IN THAT AGENT - or maybe you have the wrong one?
