Pain comes in many forms – one of those “forms” is when you choose the wrong agent to represent you in the largest buying or selling decision you will ever have.
While this video talks about REMAX – and those in the group are need “deep” therapy because they did not use REMAX Realtors, this can be broken down as to choosing the wrong agent.
Example – Keller Williams has some GREAT Realtors – So does Realty Executives, Coldwell banker, Dilbeck, Troop, and the others. Every real estate company has some great people that make up their staff of realtors.
On the other side of the coin, REMAX and the other real estate brokerages have some horrible agents. They have some that are not keeping up with technology, selling their clients shorts. They have other agents that don't care, are too calloused, and in some cases, some that are taking advantage of people and ripping them off.
However, both REMAX and other real estate companies have some great real estate associates, as stated previously 🙂
It's just the, “finding the best real estate agent”, that may be the task. It's going to take you doing your fair amount of searching online. Who's writing about the local market? Who is providing real estate search systems for people to use that have not been manipulated to only show listings that will influence a buying or selling decision?
The agent, not mattering what company, that you are going to want to team up with are those that have knowledge, experience and those that view the relationship they have with you, more important than any commission. Once you have found that – you have found an agent for life.
