It is also not true that open houses do not sell properties. Open houses are usually great tools for finding buyers but if they didn't sell houses they wouldn't continue to be held. If you advertise an open house properly you will get qualified buyers.
This realtor only bites when necessary. Contact me if you are looking to sell or buy.

If you are a Realtor or a Seller, you may not be getting buyers with Realtors because the price is too high. Have your Realtor pull recently sold properties in your school district and zip code (preferably within the same immediate neighborhood) and make sure your asking price is in alignment with recently solds.
My opinion on this question is either one of two answers
1. The buyers think they can get a better deal by working directly with the listing agent or
2. They're not really serious about buying and don't want to commit to working with an agent
