smb2010, exactly, why would you hire an agent when you are doing all the work? A lot of times clients are from out of state and have no idea what are the good neighborhoods to buy and resell in. Or here in Atlanta what will your commute be like? This is info that only agents can provide. I have heard a complaint about too many clients and not having time to give. Or a small broker not have access to special features. Many agents hire people to help them. It is like any business you cannot wait on 20 people at the same time. It is kinda like a classroom. You need a low ratio of about 1 staffer to every 4-5 clients. :) With email and texting just shooting a quick text about a showing or new listing takes seconds. Again the #1 complaint... communication :) and it doesn't make sense when communication is SOOO easy right now.

I agree with Renton and you must be honest. You were hired to sell the home so tell them the truth and sell it. If the house needs a lot of work, tell them or show them what the competition is. After seeing your competition it is a lot easier to tell your client that they need to make improvements or lower the price. I feel like my personal team goes above and beyond what a "sign in the yard" agent does, but I agree with dacolan, this question was targeted with actual buyers and sellers and only agents are answering. I think Lori was looking for client success stories. :(

Yep, I can do it in FMLS as well, I was wondering if there was a way in Zillow to do it. :)
