You Are Disappointed - Bet Your Agent Regrets Taking Your Listing!

By
Real Estate Broker with Alpine Real Estate

I got a call from a seller that told me they were disappointed with the agent they had hired.  The agent has since gone on to other pastures, and the seller is looking for another REALTOR® to market their home.

Disappointment – according to Wikipedia – the definition of disappointment is – the feeling of dissatisfaction that follows the failure of expectations to manifest.  Similar to regret, it differs in that the individual feeling regret focuses primarily on personal choices contributing to a poor outcome…


You claim you are disappointed with the results that your agent has produced.  Your home has not sold and yet your REALTOR® has advertised it, marketed it and been in touch with you on a regular basis.  Your complaint seems to be all about what you think the real estate professional did wrong.


Part of the definition of disappointment is REGRET


I bet your agent has a few regrets – and to save you the disappointment please take a look at this  list of regrets I would have had if I were your agent – if you think your previous agent has any of these regrets fix them before hiring another REALTOR®

  • Your home was not ready for photos at the time of the listing
  • Your home was priced $50,000 higher than a nicer home just down the street
  • Your agent told you your price was too high the day you listed your property
  • Your home was never in show condition
  • You often argued with the Professional you hired about the listing price of your home
  • Your yard was full of old cars and debris
  • You broke appointments to have interior photos taken
  • You complained that there were not enough photos but never readied your home for them
  • You did not clean up after your animals
  • The ONE showing you did get – you never let the buyers see the home – you followed them around and made them uncomfortable

So you think you are disappointed – I am certain your REALTOR® is regretful – and with that said – I don’t think I would like to take your listing, thank you for your call.  I only work with motivated sellers, seller’s that want to be part of a wining team.  


Selling your home in the current market and financial environment  takes more than a great price it takes teamwork, readiness and patience.

Thesa, sometimes I wonder why sellers don't consider themselves part of the team. I loved the examples you gave!

Well Thesa, now Jo is the one excited about a post. Don't you love that. LOL.

Great way to explain the partnership process. Plain talk will only help the relationship.

Great analogy, Thesa, you hit the nail on the head. Sometimes sellers are too quick to point fingers at their agents. You know what they say about pointing fingers, right? Every time you do that, there are three pointing right back at you.

When going on a listing appointment we let the client know that if they would like us to represent them that they will need to be part of our team. This includes pricing the home right, preparing it for the sale and making it available within 30 minutes for clients to view. We take it one step further and help them stage there home, do a virtual tour and have professional colored flyers out front.
