Hiring a Realtor
Recently, I've noticed a lot of strange behavior with people when they hire me as their realtor.
I understand that not everyone is going to like their realtor and want
to use someone else. But when I'm out showing a client properties, they
act as if I'm a saleman or that I own the property and are afraid to
tell me what they think, talk in whisper/other languages, and afraid to
'offend me' I guess.
When I have a realtor showing me properties, I tell them what I liked
about the place, what I didn't like, what our expectations are, and send
them any properties I see of interest.
I would say about 60% of my business are like me and 40% are like the
ones above. I don't really understand this behavior. Do people not know
that a buyers/renter's agent works for them and doesn't care what
property they take as far as compensation is concerned? Are people that
afraid I will be offended of some property that I could care less about?
Its really strange I don't know how to over come this type of behavior. I
try to tell everyone that I work FOR THEM, will Negotiate whatever THEY
WANT, and ultimately want them to rent/buy something that they will
truly enjoy. Perphaps I'm not getting my point across, perhaps its just a
natural distrust for people in sales or people in South Florida. Buts
its really maddening for me for people not tell me what's really going
on, or afraid to tell me about a property and say "I'll let you know"
& never hear back, or just not to hear anything again from someone
after showing them various units.
