A communication problem with our realtor
When we listed our home 2 months ago, we made clear to the realtors we interviewed that we would only be able to show the house on 24 hours notice. With kids, grandma's visiting nurse days, and a home business to run, there was no way around that.
A couple of them wouldn't take the listing - and that was fine, because we either wanted someone who could work with our limitations, or we were not going to list.
The third realtor we talked to insisted that 24 hours notice was " no issue at all". She handles a lot of properties like that, and thinks that most of the last minute showings are "just looky-loos" anyway. We went ahead and signed a 4 month contract with her, stipulating in writing that the house would only be shown with 24 hours notice.
Well, despite having reminded her several times since then, we continue to get calls from realtors who want to come by in half an hour. One lady called us as she was pulling into our driveway with a client... Since the nurse was giving grandma her bath, we had to tell her "sorry, we need to set up an appointment."
Our realtor has been no help, telling us that she has no control over other realtors scheduling habits. We're seriously thinking about firing her, since either she isn't communicating effectively with the other realtors, or else she told us there would be no problem just to get us signed up when we still on the fence.
We're just wondering if anyone else has run into this?
