In today's Agent Insights post, Debi La Rosa - a mortgage professional in Phoenix, Arizona - talks about what makes a real estate agent seem untrustworthy. Steer clear of these bad agent behaviors to maintain a positive, trustworthy reputation.
I recently read an article, written by another real estate agent, about why some real estate agents have a stellar reputation and why some cannot be trusted. The article applied to both how other real estate agents and the general public perceives an agent's trustworthiness.
I wanted to share with several of the possible reasons why some agents develop a bad reputation:
Writing Not-So-Accurate Home Descriptions:
Coaching the Seller to Stretch the Truth on Property Condition Disclosures:
Not Communicating in a Timely Manner:
“Buying” a Listing:
Follow these rules of thumb to keep a good, honest reputation. Your collegues and clients will thank you for it!
