Back in 2008, Luke Mullins posted an article in US News and World Report entitled: “6 Signs of a Crummy Real Estate Agent“. Check out the list below…

1. Out of pocket. Just as in a marriage, communication is a key component of the relationship between a homeowner and an agent.

2. No advice. Let’s face it; even homeowners who have been through several real estate transactions can benefit from a little advice from their agent.

3. Insists on affiliates. Real estate agents who insist on clients’ using a particular lender or affiliated company for the transaction should also trigger alarm bells.

4. Part-time gig. Just because a real estate agent has a license doesn’t mean it’s his or her full-time job.

5. Keeps it in the family. A real estate agent who shows buyers only properties that are listed with his or her brokerage could be subordinating the client’s best interests.

6. Behaviour problems. Check with CREA and your local real-estate board to see if your agent has an records of disciplinary actions.

OF COURSE! No one is perfect, but recognizing ones weaknesses and how to improve upon them is what separates the fantastic from the crummy.

While the article is two years old, the list of 6 still holds true. Know of any other SIGNS OF A CRUMMY REAL ESTATE AGENT? If so, let us know!
