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?
Are they representing their clients to the fullest by coming into an area that is unfamiliar, in order to help them purchase a home?
Is whining and complaining about it going to make a difference?
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!
