It happens all the time. The phone rings, email dings, and on the other end is a home buyer or seller wanting help. And don't get me wrong, I love to help our area home buyers and sellers, but that help comes with certain restrictions:
- I can't help you if you already have an agent (and especially if you have SEVERAL agents working for you). I'm not looking to break that relationship and "steal" you as a client. I'm not a bloodthirsty pirate agent plundering another agent's work but a firm believer in the Golden Rule. Yes, we publish a lot of useful information about area communities and that's how you found us, but the bottom line is if you already have a business relationship with another agent, or want us to be part of your agent posse, we really can't help you.
- You're working with a relocation company and they're going to dictate what agent you can hire, and we're not on the approved list. Yes we MIGHT be able to be added by them, but frankly I object to you finding us, the relocation company doing absolutely nothing to establish the relationship and still holding out their hands for a VERY large chunk of my paycheck that they did zilch to earn. It's just bad business for us.
- Through the conversation you make it clear you don't NEED or WANT an agent to represent you. Let's be clear, real estate agents are operating as small businesses, not as non-profit organizations. As soon as it's clear that you're just looking for charity work, we should probably be moving on.
So while we'd normally LOVE to help, there are times we have to pass on the opportunity.
