Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


When Home Sellers Refuse to Sign a Counter Offer

When home sellers refuse to sign a counter offer, as a listing agent, what can you do? The sellers are your clients. Listing agents must maintain a fiduciary relationship with sellers. We must represent our clients to the fullest of our ability and always keep their best interests at the forefront. As a Realtor, we need to place those interests above our own.

To some agents that means agreeing with their clients and doing precisely what their clients instruct them to do. For other agents, it is a different story. You can share your experience and / or read more in my personal blog today at this link: Seller Says I Won't Sign a Counter Offer.

First-Time Sellers in Sacramento Have Questions

Agents Pull Out the Stops to Sell Sacramento Homes
Don't ask me where this sign was located in Sacramento or which company because I didn't take the photo, my team member Josh did. He often sends me cute photos of places he goes. Generally it's places like the top of El Capitan in Yosemite or the… more

Ways Not to Hire an Experienced Sacramento Realtor
All Sacramento Realtors are not the same just like all Sacramento sellers are not the same. Every seller has a different agenda and method that she or he uses to go about picking an agent. Sometimes a seller will say, I am only interviewing one… more
