Are You the Biggest Loser on Craigslist?

By
Education & Training with TQ Real Estate Coaching

Hello Everyone,

I have recently been doing a lot of Craigslist advertising and have noticed some people flagging my ads. Though I have used Craigslist for quite a while, I had the sneaky suspicion that it wasn't consumers annoyed with me, but likely a Tonya Harding, break the knees of my competition Realtor. Hey in the Northwest you have to watch out....

The Scale Never LiesIf you watch the show, "The Biggest Loser", you know that this year people have been conniving. In most reality shows there are people who are trying to eliminate other players behind the scenes. In the biggest loser they were purposely voting out the people who were losing a lot of weight and keeping the people who weren't doing a very good job so that they could have an easy win in the end. This really bothers me. If the show is about who can lose the most weight, then the bottom two in weight loss should go home leaving the best to compete with the best. They should want to win because they did the best job.

Fact is that people aren't happy just doing a better job, they have to knock others down instead of just doing what they do and getting what they deserve. Flagging other agent's ads because they look better or post more is the same thing. Just post your ads and let others post their ads. I flag ads if they go out of the realm of advertising the house. If they offer services instead of promoting a house. These are the rules of Craigslist. But in every group there are slimy people who secretly try and break the legs of others because they are jealous. Don't join in on this because it erodes your character. 

Step up and do a better job, don't hate or cheat to win. Because when you do that, you are really the biggest loser!

Remember, Work Smart and Live Well.

Hi Ross...you have a good attitude.  Continue to do what is right and good things will come back to you.  Mine have been flagged before as well.  I just continue on and stay above board.

Ross, I have seen this happen before and it can be very frustrating.

No, it's not me. I've never even been to the Spokane Craig's list.

I have had the same thing happen to me and I just keep on .  Sometimes I have good luck with response sometimes I don't.  Craigslist is fickle.

Ross, I've also had this happen to me. I see as a complement that they've noticed and are trying to react to it, I don't let it bug me.
