Expired Can Get You Fired!
Agent lists a property early on Friday and then leaves town and cannot be reached by phone call, text message or email. Upon his return, there are 9 offers on the table and unfortunately, each of them have expired.
Not only did the listing agent fail to best represent the sellers to the highest ability, he quickly found out that he was fired. The nine other buyer agents also did not do their best to seek a viable solution for their clients.
None of them contacted the LA's brokerage or attempted to reach the sellers after that agent left town for 3 days. What would you have done to ensure that the client's offer had eyes on it before expiring?
First, I'd call the LA's brokerage, ask for the broker or the agent chosen to help in his absence. If no results, I'd talk to my broker, then show up at the seller's door because all other efforts to reach their agent, failed.
Proper representation demands that we do our very best to achieve the clients goals. That means meeting every deadline rather than allowing 3 days to go by before taking any forward action on their behalf.
Because an expired can definitely get you fired. And rightfully so!
