Online Real Estate Agent Reviews are like rolling craps!

Now admittedly online reviews are a bit of a stacked deck and always should just be a starting point in your real estate hiring decision.

 

real estate agent reviewsWhat business person is going to reach out to the absolute worst client they've had in the last 5 years and ask for a review on Yelp or Zillow or whatever site they prefer?  And I recognize that no matter how good a person or company is, there's going to be that ONE person that's going to be an issue.  I am not a firm believer in 'the customer is ALWAYS right'.  

 

Sometimes the client wants you to do things you can't legally or ethically do, and might just be ticked that you won't do as they say. Let's say we have a difference in our business ethics.

 

There could be a good reason for a bad review as one person 'in the relationship' is extremely unhappy & wants to be heard. Take some of it with a grain of salt or you can call the agent directly & ask to speak to their current clients. That way you also have the most up to date information. 

 

I'm always willing to share names with new clients.

I knock on wood and hold my breath as I say I've never had a bad online review.  I know it could happen tomorrow, but I'm thankful I have lots of good ones there to combate.

Good morning Lyn. Sometimes you can't make a person happy. Just look at politics. Enjoy your day!

Good morning, Lyn... you've said what I've been saying for years. At the end of the day who would provide a reference from someone who has nothing good to say about you?
