Wow, great that you are reading my articles, but I am certainly not in business of telling people how to cancel a listing with their agent. So I, of course, I told them that if they had a complaint they should call the state, but I still needed to know what article of mine they read prompted this.
Well, the article she read was, "Should you test your agent? In my humble opinion...YES!" and she did. She had three of her friends help and not one got a call back from her agent. This was over a 3 week period and she has had enough as she hadn't had a showing in over 2 months. She has to wonder how many other people had called that her agent hadn't responded to.
I told this person that I really couldn't give her any advice if she should or shouldn't cancel the listing, but to call the state agency and ask their opinion on the situation and then proceed from there.
To be honest, I'm guessing by the end of next week I'm going to be getting a call from this person to list their home. But how sad is it that this agent is losing a listing because they couldn't answer the phone and weren't returning phone calls?
Please, please everyone if you are a listing agent, this isn't how I want to get business, I would rather earn it rather than you lose it because of not being able to take a 2 minute phone call.
