Hold onto my number, you might need a kidney later on!
Agent gets a call from potential buyers, saying they saw her online and want to purchase in that area. Further pulling her in, they claim to have not been working with another agent.
- She diligently gets started by:
- -- Confirming they are pre-qualified
- -- Researching all available properties
- -- Driving to multiple, local neighborhoods
After showing them several homes, they find the one to buy. When it comes time to sign paperwork on their dream home, she gets a "We need to think about this overnight."
Phoning early the next day, checking to see if they're ready and gets..."We decided to give our niece the business since she is newly licensed and could really use the money."
"Thank you for your time!"
I guess they expected her to say..."Ok, then, good luck to you and make sure you hold onto my number, just in case you need a kidney further down the line. I have two."
Dishonest people use agents for selfish gain. The couple gave the transaction to a relative who wrote the contract, then got paid, based on the other professional's hard work.
If you see nothing wrong with this type of work model or are an agent who sends relatives or friends out to do this to other industry peers, you better check yourself.
Just sayin' and I'll keep my kidneys, thank you!
