About Agents Representing Family Members . . .

Working with agents who try to represent family members can be somewhat of a pain-in-the-you-know-what for a Sacramento listing agent. Why just a few days ago, I had a family member call and ask to see a listing. He acknowledged that he had an agent, but was too embarassed to disclose the agent was his aunt or really discuss how I could get in touch with her. Next up, his father called and tried to intimidate with the old I am a lawyer nonsense. So what? Hey, many of my clients are lawyers and I love working with lawyers, when they are my clients and not necessarily some random guy with a sister for an agent, but what the hey. I want my seller's house to sell. Will work with whomever.

At least from the dad I extracted his sister's name and called the agent. Turns out she lives too far south to be able to show the property but she has a licensed agent friend who can. All righty, great, we set the appointment.

Tick, tick, tick.

No show.

No phone call to cancel the showing.

Buyer apparently decided to see the home another time, as though we have all the time in the world in Sacramento real estate. So sorry nobody called to cancel, yada yada. Well, that wasn't as goofy as the next DNA agent I encountered. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Should Part-Time Realtors Represent Family Members?
