Your Agent's Reputation: Yes, it matters
Everyone has a reputation – and your agent's reputation with other agents here in Vancouver really does have a bearing on your success in buying or selling a home.
If you're selling a home your agent's good reputation for dealing fairly with buyers' agents means your home will be shown. On the other hand, if your agent makes it difficult to arrange showing appointments or if he or she has a reputation for failing to present offers immediately, your home will go to the bottom of the list.
If you're a home buyer, your agent's good reputation is also an asset. And what makes a good reputation in a buyer's agent?
Offers that are always filled out properly and completely.
Honest representation of a buyer's ability to purchase.
Willingness to get in and work when there's a glitch between agreement and closing.
When buyers' agents have a poor reputation, listing agents encourage their sellers to consider other offers first.
And for both listing agents and selling agents, a reputation for returning phone calls or emails promptly is a plus. So is a pleasant manner. No one wants to deal with someone who is hard to reach, or who is confrontational when they are reached.
I'm pleased to enjoy a good reputation with other agents here in Vancouver. In fact, due to transactions we've done together, many of them have become friends. As a result, buyer's agents show my listings, and listing agents welcome offers from my clients.
