So one of my listings sold, and in an effort to raise my social media scores, I asked the seller to make a Zillow account and post a review. Which NEVER got posted. So I had to ask him to please write ANOTHER review. Which he did. And this is the response from Zillow: ~`~~ Thank you for your review of Janet R Bidwell on Zillow. Unfortunately, it did not meet our Review Guidelines and was rejected by our moderators. However, with a few edits, Zillow might be able to publish it. Here's some specific feedback from the moderator: Review does not contain a sufficient level of detail to be useful. Please provide specifics about your experience working with the pro. Include specific examples and information that support your ratings. Thanks for contributing and helping others in the Zillow community find great agents. ~~~ It was a 3 sentence review, I read it when he sent it! How ridiculous.
This is some of the most ridiculous advice I've seen in a long time. Rather than pick it apart point by point (the ridiculous notion that agents in the same office COMPARE NOTES). . . your thoughts? http://homebuying.about.com/od/realestateagents/f/070709_Interview-Agents-Same-Company.htm
I agree, but I also think that the she is dead wrong in her article. I don't think it's an occurance that happens often by any means, certainly not to the extent that consumers should blanketly avoid interviewing two agents from the same office.
My favorite line from the article: "They were exposed on social media resulting in an online backlash against the company." Everyone is a reporter now. Everyone is a journalist. Frauds are MUCH more likely to be exposed based on online reviews and stories like this one. Long live social media and it's ability to reveal the truth!
a buyer under $200k in Bend can take 100's of hours just to find the home - we can win the bid on - actually have a buyer I am tracking for grins and giggles - we've been at it for 5 months and have in 322 hours right now - have written 14 good offers and 2 not so good offers - keep losing out to cash
