Closed a deal today with an awesome agent who was professional, courteous and a pleasure to work with. I am sorry to say that this is an anomaly in my market. He was an out of area agent and if he was in my area I'd try to recruit him. Awesome co-broke.
Logged onto Trulia to adjust my local ads and find that they won't let me make my own choices alone now. I have to call the 800# to talk to a consultant to change my ad locations. Really? #FAIL. This backfired on you T. Now I am pissed and will be calling that 800# tomorrow, to re-allocate the money I spend on something where I don't have to talk to a salesperson to change my settings.
I also offered to mentor her here for a few months at the front desk, so she could watch what goes on and decide whether or not this is the career for her. She has enthusiasm and seems confident in herself, which I like. I use the "front desk test" all the time and normally hire only agents with 3 years+ experience. But I will occasionally take on a newbie if they are full time and agree to be mentored.
No nothing has changed. Lots of promises on the start, no delivery. No comprehension that "one size fits all" doesn't work with all markets. And no ability to tweak it when you realize it's not fitting.
I just can't believe some of the comments here. This is a CLEAR violation, regardless of the reason the agent wanted to go in. Carolyn does NOT need to go and put specific instructions into her MLS for agents not to show the property on certain days, and she should NOT have to remove the lockbox to keep agents from BREAKING THE LAW, AND OUR RULES. It's simple, if you don't have an appointment ahead of time, you DO NOT enter the property, period. Otherwise, it's legal trespassing AND a clear violation of Article 1 SOP, as Alec pointed out.
