    Driving someone around for days...showing them houses, trying to get questions answered, find out how I can help them. They decide they are not going to look at houses "this weekend" and you call Monday to follow up and they tell you: "...well I was going to the store and there was this 'For Sale by Owner Open House', so I stopped in and I liked it so much I bought it! Aren't you happy for me?"

    OUCH! We bought our house from a real estate agent. I made my wife promise to make the transaction with the guy after he spent an entire day showing us houses that fit within her strict guidelines. The realtor did not make us feel obligated to buy a house through him, I just felt that way after he spent all that time helping us.

  11. I hate it when exams test your testing ability, not your knowledge :scowl: :rollno:

    Thanks Mike. It does happen, and I am greatful to loyal clients. But I have to also be loyal to them. But people buy/do things for their own reasons.
    And if your Realtor isn't helpful, tell them, and then find another one.
