Been trying to track down one of those discount agents this morning. I got a cryptic message from an "assistant" which could have been a robot since it wanted a Y or N or a STOP in my text messages. The text was about making an appointment on a listing that MLS had requested the buyer's agent call the seller. But robots can't read, and many discount agents don't read MLS either.
I tried to contact the agent and, after several rounds with the brokerage, they promised to give the seller's phone number to the agent. But the agent seemed like a deer in headlights this morning. He had no idea which properties he planned to show this afternoon and had no recollection of generating a text yesterday. He said clients sometimes remove homes from tours, and they make last-minute updates to their tour.
What happened to agents looking for property for their buyers? Or making appointments? It must be just this particular company. I don't know.
My blog today is not about discount agents, though. It is about what happens when when your ring door bell goes dead and the solar charger doesn't work. In fact, I wish I had researched it more to start with and never relied on a solar charger. Most of the reviews are bad. In fact, Amazon won't even take anymore reviews on this product, because none is good. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Update on Ring Video Doorbell 2.
