Great topic. One thing besides what you mentioned that I can think of is an agents body language or facial reaction when showing something they havent seen before, are not comfortable with, or simply do not like personally. This can offend a client during a listing presentation, and any chance of a transaction is gone.

You are right on about body language. I have preached about that one forever.


Besides financing ..inspections are a major deal killer!
