Have a question...As a REALTOR, if you are at a vacant property showing your client the home and another REALTOR approaches with their clients (as this property is a "go and show"), would you block entry of the other REALTOR and then relock the door, tumble the lockbox and then leave to have the other REALTOR re-open both the lockbox and the door? I ask because I had an agent do this to me yesterday and my clients turned to her clients and told them point blank that they needed a new REALTOR. (And, while looking shocked at what the REALTOR did to me, I never said a word.)
Okay...so to follow on from Susan Milner's question regarding marketing, I need to "freshen up" my mailing pieces for FSBO and short sale Expired listings...any suggestions on what you have used (wording wise) that you have had success with?
I would agree with you on this Matt (normally) but our area is not really normal right now. A well priced, good condition property can be on the market for a mere 24-48 hours down here. I usually have other agents say to me, if your buyers are upstairs, can I show downstairs? My reply, "sure! the more the merrier!" Most buyers and other agents down here (that I have normally encountered - other than yesterday) are pretty accommodating due to the marketplace. And I tend to be pretty accommodating too. Cindy, if I had not been in a tight security gated community, I would have locked the door behind me but as I knew the area, the community and the fact that the development is like Fort Knox, I did not feel the need to lock the door behind me.
Irene, I guess I do things a bit differently...I tend to acknowledge the other agent and warmly chat with them and ask them their preference - if they don't mind showing while I am showing or if they wish to wait. That is where I think the courtesy lies - in communication with colleagues.
i listened to a great webinar where the agent takes into consideration the four personality types taught as DISC and aims a piece at each personality type. Seemed great, but was too expensive for me at this time.
Gia Freer, sounds like that other agent may have been preoccupied with something else. Perhaps she was putting out a "fire" of sorts and wasn't in a position to be chatty? Either way, sounds like you handled it like a pro and just went with the flow. Sometimes we can't predict the personalities of the colleagues we come across.
