Why Doofus Agents Give Our Profession a Bad Name

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

Here is my cheery New Year's Eve message today. As Hella Rothwell and I gaze from our balcony at the ocean and Diamond Head from our top floor room at the Halekulani.

It constantly astonishes me when agents display such stupid behavior in the name of building business for themselves and that they could do so without any regard for consequences as well. My question to myself is typically what were they thinking? To which your answer is they were not thinking or they would not have done it. And my response to that is they would do it anyway because they are stupid.

We always want to give them a benefit of a doubt and why? Why are we programmed that way? Even cornered, some of the agents will still defend themselves and continue to do the crappy things they should not do because they told themselves it was all right.

Hi Elizabeth ( and Hello to Hella)... I can’t imagine that someone like the agent you mentioned would or should stay in business long. Go out and get your own business instead of baiting and switching when a buyer calls in about one of your listings which aren’t really yours.
