How To Schedule Appointments to See Listed Houses

 helpfulhannahs.com

 

The other day I received a call from an agent asking for an appointment to see one of my listings .  I informed him all appointments are made through the office .  He said he was sitting in front of the property with his clients and thought perhaps he could schedule through me . I gave him the office number and told him to call the office.

 

A few minutes later he called back telling me the office would not give him an appointment  as they could not find his name in the  directory . I thought about this and asked t him if he was a member of the MLS 

 

"He said No " I asked if he was a member of Trend  .  "He said No "  I  asked how he found the listing as there was not a sign per the sellers request . "He said it was easy he found it on Zillow and Trulia ''

Now a red flag started waving before my eyes .

 

 

I asked him who he worked for he repeated the name of a small Real Estate company in the area  There are other agents that have shown this  property from this company  but they were all members of the MLS . I asked why he was not a member of the MLS he answered laughing  "Why should he spend the money Real Estate was not his only job he had better things to spend his money on ''

 

 

Then  the agent  said in a demanding voice "Make me an appointment at 1o clock on Monday my buyers are available and interested " I told him I would see what I could do .  We log in all agents names , brokerages with their license numbers , email phone numbers  . It is done through "Showingtime" . I question whether this man was even licensed .The seller was glad we refused him entry but is upset that their  address is posted  by a third party.

 

 

How you schedule appointments to see listed houses is very important . You need to keep records for various reasons . The listing agent will want to get feedback for the seller . You also want to make sure the person calling is a licensed Real Estae Agent
