Choosing Agent Article Draws Reactions
My latest article, “The Changing World of Choosing an Agent,” must have struck a resonant chord because I have received numerous phone calls about it. Those who responded shared their experiences of both buying and selling real estate in this area and their disappointment with one or more of their agents. These agents had not represented their best interests.
The callers worried about the next time they bought or sold and told me they were baffled about how to identify and select an agent who would “stand in their shoes.”
The counsel I gave in my article was this: “If the agent spends most of his/her time talking about himself/herself, and selling/marketing instead of how he/she would do an excellent job of representation, move on to the next one.”
