"I had to stoop to showing one of Jane Doe's Listings". This was said and overheard by a few agents at one of our Realtors Association's meetings. I was amazed that there was such an poor attitude toward that particular agent and wondered how it came to be.
I have always tried to treat all other agents fairly and with respect. Ive been nice, helpful and downright accommodating even when they don't do things right, (what I mean is the way I do them) and yes I know my way isn't always right. A little humor there. It seems that all of us could be a little more helpful to other agents. Most would say there are particular agents that we would rather never do business with again. My question is do most agents know they are doing themselves, and more importantly their sellers a disservice by being mean, rude and unhelpful when dealing with others.
I think that sellers don't know how bad hiring one of "those" agents can be to the sale of their property. I also think that agents that don't show property because of who the listing agent is, is doing a great disservice to their buyers as the perfect property for them may never be realized. I think it will serve us all well to be respectful to each other, helpful to a fault and "KILL THEM WITH KINDNESS"
So don't yell at me because you didn't get a lead based paint disclosure when you listed the property and now I have an offer I can't submit , my next buyer may just love your sellers home...If you're nice.
