We connected, but it did not work out.
Response from Laura on 04/25/2012
It is very common practice for experienced and successful Realtors to work on an exclusive basis with their clients. We work very hard and only get paid on commission at close of sale. It does not make sense for Realtors who work hard and provide excellent service to later have their client use a different agent to close the sale, and therefore not get paid for any of their efforts. I believe this buyer's expectations are unrealistic. He may find an agent who is willing to work on his terms but it is not fair to criticize other agents, like myself, who make it a policy to be compensated for their time and effort when providing excellent service. I very nicely and tactfully explained this policy to this individual when he told me that he was already working with several different realtors. I only have so much time and energy in a day and want to focus it on those clients who are committed to working with me, as long as I am doing a great job for them. (see other reviews :)
