WHY I GAVE AWAY A LISTING

House

I hate ever losing a listing but sometimes we all need to realize that for whatever reason, some listings are just stuck. I have had the BEST clients who were relocated after only being in their new home (the former model home) of one year. The neighborhood was new and is still building out.

The home is fantastic, has been priced very well and shows like a gem.  But....we have not gotten it sold. We had a contract on it which turned out to be a fraudulent buyer (whole other story here). Anyway, we have just exhausted our efforts. Today it was that day to let the listing go.

Yet all is not lost! I called upon another agent from a different firm and asked her is she was interested receiving this referral. There is no time for pride here, it is time for action and to help these folks get their home sold. Perhaps a fresh set of eyes will do the trick. Sometimes we have to step out of the way and do the right thing!

If you are interested in listing or purchasing real estate in The Woodlands area, call Chevaux Group.  We will always do our best job for you! We know real estate and are here to assist you!

Giving away a listing doesn't have to mean that you have failed. It just means that you care enough to let it go and let someone else get it sold. Together we can all work together to make it happen!

That just shows you have the best interest of the client at heart. I gave up a listing about a month ago and the woman was shocked, but her situation was far beyond my help so I made a referral to a co-worker who is a foreclosure expert. I wish all agents would work in the best interest of their clients.

I love that you are the one suggesting this to your client.  Sometimes a fresh approach is the best.

sometimes you make more on the listings you walk away from.  How does that work when you refer to a broker another in your area?  Our brokers don't allow us to do that :(

Hi Paula,  I love your thinking and your genuine concern for your clients.  Good for you!  Sometimes, that is the best thing we can do.  Pays off in the long run for everyone.

This is one of the best posts I have read lately.  And, I was surprised not to find it featured.  Good for you, Paula.  Sometimes the kindes thing we can do for a client is kiss them goodbye.
