ARE THESE AGENTS NUT???????

Asked by Jim Mcmahon, Foot Hills, Provo, UT Mon Oct 27, 2008

I am shocked at some of the things that some of these agents are putting up on this site regarding the candidates. I am looking for a house in a particular area and was given the name of a Realtor. I decided to Google and found he was saying slanderous things here about my candidate which lost him a sale. Do they not realize that by airing their feelings they can alienate up to 50% of potential clients considering they have their contact information on their profile? The stuff on the internet follows you forever.

Yes, you are right . The real estate professional as well as, any service provider should realize that personal opinions have no place in business and in following an ethical practice.

That is the beauty of being able to hire and fire any provider!

As long as Obama doesn't lose by having the election stolen like Bush did in Florida, if that happens I am going to be out rioting.

I totally agree that, as realtors, our political views should not be posted. This is a real estate site and we are here to service our clients, both buyers and sellers. Let's talk real estate, NOT politics.

I am noticing quite a few of the anti Obama borderline racist comments have disappeared from some of the blogs after a few calls to some of their brokers.

I try and avoid discussions on politics and religion - everyone has an opinion and it is certainly possible that it differs from mine.

I am thrilled to hear a buyer/seller say this out lout (so to speak) it has been an issue with me regarding a lot of issues - sometimes our personal opinion should not be shared - it is personal not professional. Thanks for putting it out there.

My grandmother used to tell me not to discuss religion and politics. Some of the best advice she ever gave me.

Jim,

I agree! I don’t think that this is a place to be discussing politics. This is a REAL ESTATE website.
