Clients That Get It.

Real Estate Agent with Crown Key Realty

Saturday: Open house. Agent comes in with clients. Says, really like the property but we won't be writing because you are over priced. I say, write an offer based on what you and clients think its worth. He says , no we will wait till you drop the price.

Sunday: Same open. Clients come in with different agent in tow. Say they like the property and have emailed offer based on what they think the property is worth.

Monday: in office and read offer. Monday about 2 PM. Offer accepted in escrow. Buyers agent and clients absolutely understand that opening a dialog beats waiting around.

My name is Dale E. Bledsoe with Crown Key Realty and as always I may be reached at 209-481-6031.

Interesting ... not the outcome the other agent expected ... for sure --- but seemingly right in line with the potential buyers expectations. Whoda thought the listing agent to be more in tune with them then their "own" (used-to-be) agent.

The first real estate professional dropped the ball . . . . big time.

Good luck and success.

Interesting, Dale.  It certainly looks like these buyers understood what you said the first time.  Unfortunately, the first agent didn't.
