Some people really don't care for Realtors...
Got a call today from somebody, a buyer actually, who didn't even introduce himself, or the fact that he was a buyer, but the first thing he wanted to know was "is this the company that will rebate 1% of the commission back to the buyer? Will you give me back 1%?"
Wow, what could I say, with no introduction or anything... so I asked if he was a buyer... Yes he is. This would have been a perfect opportunity for him to give me his so-called elevator speech and wow me with all his wonderful attributes so I would jump at the opportunity to work with him, and I even suggested as much. But no, he just wanted to know if anyone else in my company would cut their commission to work with him! Come on - give me one good reason please!
Needless to say this conversation didn't go much further. I wonder how many other agents he called before finding one that was willing?
Funny thing, I Googled his phone number and saw that he has a place for sale on another island and wouldn't you know it, it's with a less-than-full-service company. That figures!
Sorry buddy, but this is the full service lane... try the other lane.
