Mine is similar, those agents that dont answer their phones, dont return messages and then there are the ones that do, but are so rude you wished they didnt.

If I had to pick one, and only one, it would be the advertising that is so obviously out of compliance - no brokers name, numbers claimed that bear no correlation to actual numbers in the MLS, "I'll buy your house" (sure you will for a hefty discount), etc. - that is designed to get that agents phone to ring.  Starting a relationship due to a false premise is "distasteful"....

It's either intentionally deceptive - or it's due to ignorance.  Either one is bad...

Corey,

My #1 pet peeve is agents complaining about other agents.  One would think that with so many "incompetent" agents, everyone who is good should be market leaders and capitalizing like crazy!!!  A

Corey,
It is variations on the same theme. The “other” agent. Whether it is ego, lack of communication, etc. other agents sometimes do more to hinder deals than help. That said, there are many, many agents who are excellent to deal with.

Corey - Off the top of my head, I think I am right there with you on the slow, or no response from other agents. I am sure if I thought about it for a while, I could come up with a lot more pet peeves as well.

30% of buyer agents fail to show up for the shceduled appointment. 

40% of buyer agents don't read the listing details.

100% of the time I smile and keep on trucking and add to 'The List."

Perhaps you are unaware of what happens on the listing agent side created by other buyer agents. I thought you should know.
