When a listing agent deals with enough buyer's agents, the same story often pops up over and over. It is this crazy talk of commitment, dedication, and unrelenting love for the property, when much of it is puffery. Some buyer's agents will say anything to get into contract. Even when presented with a perfect window of opportunity to get their client a house, they can still come up a day late and a dollar short.
True, some make promises without talking to their buyers, thinking they can talk them into whatever the deal is.
