10 reasons NOT to hire that Realtor – Fire their butt.
    • They don’t answer your phone calls.
    • They don’t have any good reason why you should hire them.
    • They don’t have any references or proof of any sales history they can show you.
    • They don’t appear to like their job.
    • They don’t appear to like your house.
    • They can’t think of any buyers who might be interested.
    • They never give you any feedback.
    • They work another job – not a full-time agent.
    • They don’t do what it takes to get things done.
    • They are the cause for your missed showings – no showing service!

    What else would you add to this list?

    This is only a short list of things I've personally witnessed from other agents in and around League City, Texas!

Brian, this is a great list and it should be in all professional agents listing presentation! Of course those of us who detail those points to our motivated sellers usually get the job!

Brian,

I would add a realtor who talks more than listens. I believe it was Bernard Baruch who once said "

Most of the successful people I've known are the ones who do more listening than talking."

Good post.

Richard - Way to go!

Caren - Sure do... but the ones who don't live up to the expectations they set should get the axe!

Lyvia - Excellent point.  I agree totally.  I think of the list I created as the minimum level of service.  The great agents will absolutely listen, but this seems to be a rare quality!

Thank you all for your comments!

They show up late for meetings with clients

They don't keep an eye on the flyer box to make sure something is in it

Evelyn - I had one agent show up for a meeting with me to write a contract over 1 hour late.  Mind boggling.
