Half of my costumers are mail away, out of state or out of the country. All those communications are done over the phone , email and electronic signing.   To answer your question, the answer is no:)

Never.  My brokerage has a great office setting with conference rooms.  It is nice to be in a professional enviroment and an easy to find location. I have also met at coffee shops or restaurants when clients are a distance away.  I have become good friends with many clients and will invite them into my home in a social setting.

As most realtors work from home, we all have a designated office space within the home. However, I do not conduct face to face business at home due to privacy issues. In addition,  clients expect a credible and legitmate agent to meet them at the office not the residence.

Only if it the best soluton.

In Florida agents home address (not the brokers) is published. Where we live is not a secret.

However, I try to meet in venues that establish the right authority. If my home had a business entrance and the space created the needed authority, I would not hesitate to meet there.
