Well still being new and learning all the time this was another experience I've never had. I've brought in my customers (I call them that because I've no buyer agency form signed) for the inspection of the house they are buying. I like to trail the inspector because I like to learn the in's and outs of the house and who better to learn that from than from the inspector.Â
So we are about 20 minutes in and the inspector says to me "Who do you work for"? So I told him I'm a brokers agent so I ultimatley work for the seller. He says, ok then can you give us some space? I was like sure...whatever is easier for you.
So I waited outside for the other hour of the inspection until everyone came outside. It felt super awkward. I've been on 4 trips with these people and have never met the seller of that particular house or even the selling agent but I was made to feel sort of untrustworthy? I heard the inspector say to the buyers somethiong about "working on commission" so it sort of sounded like he was telling them to really question where my loyalty lies.
Obviously I know the drill and without the buyer agency I'm working for the seller. But I think this guy should have had a little more tact.
What do you think?
