The "stupidest"? That's hard to pinpoint so I'll just go with a recent one.

Other Agent - "What number should I put on the offer?"

Me - "I think full price will get your client the house."

Other Agent - "Ok"

I saw an agent once tailor a marketing plan toward FSBOs.....but she didn't know what a FSBO was....she was marketing everything as "First Sale By Owner" and not "FOR Sale By Owner".....it was actually pretty funny because this was after she spent a ton of time telling me about how good she was.

I called to set up a showing for Monday, as her listing said 24 hours notice.  It was Sunday, Mothers Day.  She yelled at me, because I bothered her on Mother's Day and told me to call her at the office on Monday.

Ah, so many come to mind... One of the funniest was the agent that asked if I would write up his client's offer. Uh, not unless they decide to be my clients!

There is a big difference with blabbing too much information and saying dumb things that show the incredible lack of knowledge.

I was representing the bank as a seller with a foreclosed property. I'm at the closing table with the buyers and their agent. Everything was going well until the buyers heard there was an HOA for the property. They look at me like it's my fault no one told them. I told them the information was clearly there in the MLS. Then they look at their agent. He says...oh don't worry about that HOA, it's really no big deal and they don't do much.

Good morning Chris and Dick Dovorany. Even though I am an active investor, when a listing agent tells me what the seller will accept for an offer.

When  listing agent will state the seller will take less for a home. That is a clear violation of their agency with their principal.

I had almost the same conversation with a fellow REALTOR --- they were holding an open house and told my buyers they could rent out the basement, when it WAS NOT zoned for R2.
