"One of Sonoma County's Natural Resources"

1. Agents/Realtors who see no value in NAR--myopic look at real estate and miss the big picture of being a large, trade group with power at the National, State and local level

2. Agents who sell properties "off-market" and then put the listing into the MLS with one photo.

3. Agents who DON'T use decent photos in their listings. They fail to grasp this is a "Comp" for us all and having horid photos with no descriptions diminishes the "Comp" usefulness.

Incompetent agents/agents that lack professionalism.  I had an agent show up 1.5 hours late to a showing, and then she opened the lockbox and the home without even knocking first.  My clients were home, and upset to say the least.  She wanted to show the home the following day too so I said the only way you can show is if I meet you there.  She brought her 6 week old baby with her without telling me or her clients!

"If you can 'goggle it' it must be real."

Agent from a sanctuary broker submitted a purchase offer for a listed Dunedin FL house.  The purchase contact just wasn't worded right and the format unfamiliar. On the Footer of page four the problem was identified. The contract was for the State of Georgia.  

When I advised the buyer agent that "this dog don't hunt" and inquired where she got the form (thinking she may have been former Georgia Agent) she replied with the greatest assurance. "I googled it!"

Once more a broker giving safe harbor to agents needing enduring , persistent and invasive oversight.
