1. You are choosing the type of realtors that perpetuate the industry stereotype, e.g., care more about pursuing next client than current one, extreme attention deficit disorder, lack of knowledge in the specified field ('investments' in your case), worry more about their car getting towed for illegal parking than whether or not a property meets your needs.
2. You are a fickle buyer without purpose, direction, or the ability to know when to write an offer. If you have already been through the 'primer' when you and your agent discuss what types of properties might work, and the agent is showing you places that are clearly good investments based on your requirements and you don't 'pull the trigger', then you can't expect them to stick around. They are 'donating' their time predicated on the future promise that you'll buy something. If they sense you are non-committal that means no new bluetooth for your realtor.
3. it isn't likely, but certainly possible, that you are possessed by an evil spirit, most likely some real estate investor who lost it all during the 2007 crash, and had an untimely death. He is causing this, and the only solution is an exorcism by Carlton Sheets, available for $99.95 for a limited time.
Are you looking for a coach or someone to hold your hand? As you can tell from the many responses, there are lots of Realtors that can and are willing to help you.
As an investor you must communicate exactly what you need a Realtor for. Many established investors never use a Realtor because they have either learned the process themselves or their type of investing rarely requires their services.
Can you identify why the Realtor abandons you? Usually it's because a lot of their time is wasted either looking for a property, lack of funds, or not following good advice. Not sure what your situation is, but you know. Perhaps being more open and honest might work for you.
Hope this helps.
If you want a Realtor any Realtor to be committed to YOU, then YOU need to be loyal to that one
Realtor. In other words you need to find one Realtor ready and willing to work with you based on your
area or interest and the type of property you are looking for, you then you need to commit, work only with that ONE Realtor and sign an
Exclusive Buyer Representation Agreement
You need to be open and honest about your financials to buy a said property type, and then trust
that Realtor, and it may be difficult to find what you are looking for, so listen to the REaltor to let
you know what you can and cannot find in your areas of interest or in your price range.
Establish a really good relationship and if the Realtor can count on you, that you will only work with him or her for as long as it takes to find a good property for you, that Realtor will stick to you, because at the end you will purchase with THAT Realtor.
Do you want me to guess why some Realtors walk away or a you say that YOU have a hard time trying to get a Realtor to stick to you, many reasons they do not feel that you are committed to them,
or you are searching for something that is not readily available either in your location, size of
property, condition of property or price range....
So try to find an Agent who understands from the beginning what and where you are looking, and
listen to make sure that what you hope to find is actually attainable....

However, why would they not stick with you? Are you too unrealistic? Low ball offers? I find it hard that an agent wouldnt want to work with an investor. They are usually the best clients.
A real estate professional would normally be happy to work with a qualified investor over a long period of time, as is my office.
