Accuracy.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

It is one of those things that you can't buy and matters the most. I remember a colleague who once sold a townhome to a client representing that the attached garage was part of the transaction. It wasn't. Imagine the closing when the buyer came to find out that she was about to lose what she most wanted. My colleague never checked, but assumed. 

I can not imagine this. The irony is that she is still working and is now a Broker of Record. I never heard how she managed to not lose her license over this. 

Anyone can make a mistake, but accuracy, is in my view, the most important factor in the day to day operation of business. Don't know for sure.....say so and find out.

Hello Sheila - The Peter Principle lives on in this example. Most of us are familiar with the issues relating to assumption.

Happy Saturday Sheila, That could really get a client upset at the closing table.  Unreal some times.

Morning Sheila.

Mistakes in this business can be very costly.  I'll bet in the end it did cost her something, I'm curious on how much it did cost her.  Oh well, we'll never know

Shelia - OMG that really should have had consequences.  Did the client sue?  That is unacceptable and that agent should have paid for it.

Sheila - I cannot see how the buyer did not have recourse - but I will say I did work with an agent that sold a  house to someone who thought the house had a basement - it did not - it was not the first time either
