Call from someone that already has an agent?

How often as a Buyer’s Agent on Zillow or Trulia do you receive a call
from someone that already has an Agent?

Buyers just don't understand how a Real Estate Agent gets paid.

They think they can go see a home with the listing agent, never tell that agent that I am working with a Buyer’s Agent.
Then when the Buyer’s Agent asks them if they want to make an offer they
say yes I will have my agent call you. WOW!!

You need to ask everyone that calls from Zillow or Trulia if
they are working with an Agent.

We need to educate the Buyer Community on how Real Estate works.

It is our job to make sure they understand this business!!

If not you will waste a lot of your precious time showing homes to
people that will never buy a home from you!!

I don't agree that we have to educate the public on how real estate works... When I get a cold call I listen to what they are requesting, and one of my very first questions, apart from how did you find me is... "Are you working with an agent?"  It's MY job as an agent to ask that question so I do not waste my time. The other agent should be educating his clients not to call another agent!

You are basically saying the same thing.

When I get a call from a buyer, I always ask " Are you working with an agent? " if they say yes, I ask them to call their agent.

Yes but wouldn't it be nice if they already new they should be asking their agent to show them the home?
