OK, is it just me or are you seeing it to? Are we helping asset managers find other agents?
I have had three closings in the last month and all three had a place to ask for the selling agents information - Name, brokerage, Address, Phone, Fax and Email. Well, I have completed those required fields and I did tell the agents that I have put their information in the system, as I wanted to see what they had to say about it.
Wow, two of them called me this week to let me know how much they appreciated my putting their information in as they both got high end listings!! What is going on? I got no listings this month but I helped the AM's find other agents to sell other listings?
I've asked how my work and productions are and am told I am one of the top agents, but I don't see any report cards or verification of that and then to see listings given to agents that haven't even signed up to get them. Then they call me and ask me how to use Equator and Res.Net because they are having a problem and don't understand how to do something?
Believe me I truly am not complaining as it is team effort all the way around in this business, but it is just a little disheartening when I work so hard, get the certifications, the training, pay the fees for the platforms and do well over 1400 BPO's a year, so I know my name is out there, and they keep auto assigning me BPO's, but I do not get the listings, some one else does that had sold one of my listings. My homes always have the utilities on, both types of lock boxes (combo and MLS) so agents that don't have or can't afford an MLS key right now, still can show the properties. I try to return the calls within 2 hours if not immediately AND I make my weekly visits to my listings and keep them clean myself with a swipe of windex and a vacuum in my car. Is all this not enough?
I was happy with 5 or 6 listings a month, but that has even gone down hill and the buyers agents that sold my listings are now getting the listings and thanking me for putting their name in. Are other agents seeing that or am I the only one? I won't lie and put in a false name in the fields, but it sure makes a person wonder!!!
