Be a professional and open those doors!Be a professional and open those doors!

There has been some discussion regarding out-of-area agents bringing clients down to southern Utah to purchase instead of referring them to local agents. Some local REALTORS disagree with this practice and may be reluctant to show their listings.

After listening to the argument, one thing is certain...

A listing agent’s duty and responsibility is to the seller to get the property SOLD! It is not up to the agent to decide who can view the property no more than who purchases the property. It is unethical and a grave disservice to clients to close the door to outside agents.

Is it right to pay local Board dues while outside agents have no obligations to do so and gain access to local listings? 

Probably not.

Are they representing their clients to the fullest by coming into an area that is unfamiliar, in order to help them purchase a home?

Probably not.

Is whining and complaining about it going to make a difference?

Probably not.

Agents, represent your clients to the fullest and open the doors to your client’s listings and get them SOLD! You cannot control other people’s motives and certainly not their work ethic but you are able to maintain your own!

Open those doors and get it done I say!

Thanks Dawn!

Andrea, I saw a lot of the higher priced sales during the hey-day and yes most were out-of-towners.

Lindsey, And bells on!

I think the "area of expertise" argument is a little inflated.  My understanding of "area of expertise" is that agents specializing in residential real estate are treading on thin ice when they venture into commercial or other specialized areas.  Agents who have never listed and negotiated a short sale may cross the line by jumping into that market without adequate preparation and guidance.  The fact that an agent doesn't tread regularly on the dirt on which a house was built does not, in my estimation, constitute being out of one's area of expertise.  Possibly, and agent who is working outside his/her normal geography may take less for granted and actually do a better job of representing the client.  At any rate, it's not up to the listing agent to qualify the buyer's choice of agent.

Barbara-Jo, That attitude gets things done!

Tom, Yes! OPEN the doors to get it SOLD!

Mike, All real estate is local and while some agents may feel comfortable in selling outside their area, I, for one choose not to travel that road. I will always, however, open the doors to my listings to all buyers, that is a responsibility I have to my client in order to sell the property.
