Red Flags

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

Red flags. Easton vs. Strassburger taught us about those. But then so did that bad relationship. Or two. Or four. I recently saw the red flags BEFORE I went to work for a certain team and chose a much better team instead. Red flags are there for us to notice. And it behooves us when we do take note.

 

And unfortunately, I am sure I will miss a red flag or two in the near future. Seems that it’s all a part of learning.

Rocky you should be here in California after all that is where this case was generated:) now with that said we have about 40 plus pages of disclosure... and in all fairness all it did was dilute this case... basically we put the buyer on notice do not listen, do not believe in your Realtor do your own Due Dilligence... thank you attorneys:)Endre

Hi Rocky - we talk about red flags when we are in the position to review applicants and hire.  Red flags say stop and look deeper.

For sure, Rocky. The few times I saw some red flags and ignored them I regretted doing so. I've learned to listen hard to that little voice in the back of my head when it's telling me to pass on something.

Hello Rocky - constant awareness, experience in doing the right thing and understanding people as well as the process help but don't eliminate the red flags that come our way each day.  In real estate and in real life.

Goodmorning Endre! I do remember the classes in 1982 where they hammered that case into our brains to get our California licenses

Good morning James. Quite an interesting case that the schools used to hope to make us better in real estate in the 1980s in California

The good things about red flags are that they are usually pretty easy to spot and if we do miss a red flag and get burned, we learn very quickly to watch out for that red flag in the future, haha.  When I met you, I saw nothing but green flags!

Rocky, had some red flags (also hair on the back of my neck) warn me about a suspicious "buyer".   Recently I found that the husband was a fugitive.

Rocky unfortunately some time we do not realize something is a red flag, until it is to late.

Good evening George! Yes, all too often people don't see them until it is too late.

Hi Rocky- I'm usually pretty good at seeing red flags and reading people. Not perfect though so have to be on guard.
