My Listing agent
I'm a very laid back and easy going person so when I get upset it takes a lot but I'm not very happy with my listing agent.I'm asking for advice or to see if I'm expecting too much. My house went on the market about 3 weeks ago and we've been told that our number of showings are more than normal.
These are my questions and concerns so any feedback would be great.
1. I've had to ask her 3 times about flyers for the outside sign and also to leave indoors for buyers to take home. Should I persist on asking and are they helpful in todays market?
2. When we listed she said there would be an agent tour the following week and 2 weeks later ther was one. She said the agents would leave feedback on the house - both good and bad but I've not recieved anything yet. I've asked her and she gave me a quick verbal report saying they had NOTHING bad to say about the house other than the piano (Yes. I'm the piano woman you will remember from another post) and that we are at the top of the price range per sqft. I asked over the weekend and heard nothing from her. The detailed sheets will say what they liked most and I could use that to help feature the best parts of the house and possibly work on other areas to imporve them. Should I ask again when we will get these feedback reports? Tomorrow will bel one week since they toured my home.
3. She is also our agent to find us a new home or land and has only sent ONE short email in a months time which had a few listings I might like. I look daily so should I expect her to be more aggreesive in helping us find a place? She knows I look every day so is she possibly assuming she doesn't need to look for me. I've asked her to send me new listings and she also has access to some via the Dallas listing that I don't have.
4. She missed the dealine for last Sunday's Open House and about 30 minutes before we were to leave the house she called me after I emailed her and she said the newspaper didn't get the info in the paper and did I still want to have it anyway. I WAS VERY UPSET so what should I do for this coming week?? I emailed her this morning to remind her!!!
What should I expect from her? She came highly recommended by 2 people but I'm beginning to think I have to do everything and perhaps she was not as busy 2 years ago when these people bought their homes and now she's too busy to help us. I'm very easy going but I'm finding I'm getting more upset every day. From what I hear my home shows beautifully!!!
I've never sold a home so have no idea what to expect from our realtor. Any advice would be so appreciated.
