I'm writing this blog post to reach out to Realtors that should hear the other side of the coin. We, as Realtors, all have many things in common. One of them is time management. We have limited numbers of hours to spend with our clients and there are days in which we have back to back appointments.
There are a few local agents that refuse to allow another agent in the home to show it while they are showing it to their clients. They sure look like a hero to their client when they explain to them that this is their private time to see the home.
Unfortunately, that leave another agent and sometimes two or more sitting on the outside of the home wasting their time. This mean the times they arranged to see other homes may be delayed and in some cases missed. Oh yeah, it also make the rest of the showing to be rushed should the agent have another appointment following this one.
Sometimes the agent showing the home has a client that is quite interested in the home. Of course these conscientious agent take all the time in the world to answer questions and discuss the process of making an offer and even share comparable sales information.
I guess the one thing that I personally take seriously is our Agency Agreement. It states that we are to serve the best interest of our clients. It also states that we are to be fair to other people. Fairness is all that I am asking for.
Your thoughts? I have wide shoulders and can take contrary opinions.
