Agent to Agent...Deal with difficult agentsIf you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to work with a difficult agent how do you handle the situation? I am a fairly new real estate agent in Arizona (not to be taken as new to real estate) with only 12 transactions under my belt and I recently had to deal with a sellers agent that was verbally abusive and acted like spoiled bully. We were working on a short sale transaction and if my buyers didn't get a form back within the sellers Agents time frame the agent would get very upset and abusive. Here is a direct quote from a text he sent after one doc wasn't signed within 24 hrs "...horrible that's all I can say. Tests what happens when you deal with a rookie with only 6 sales" I also received several email and phone calls with this type of language. I asked the agent to only email me because I didn't want to get yelled at. Then I just sent texts because they are harder to type and the emails proved to be abusive as well...then I received a call from the agents partner who spent her time telling how I should be telling my clients that they have to do this or that...What is the correct course to take in a situation like this? I don't like yelling at people, I try to be an easy agent to work with and work hard to insulate my clients from the other agent (the agent did contact my buyers and told them that I wasn't doing my job and he contacted my broker but they both felt I was doing what I should).
