4 Types of Real Estate Agents to Avoid Doing Business With

While I’m sure that you can probably think of more types of real estate agents you may want to avoid doing business with, I’d like to share with 4 types that I did not like to do business with. 

The Know-It-Alls

These are the agents that think they know more than you do when it comes to mortgage loans, the lending process, appraisals and pretty much everything else involved with loan.  Unless you are new and they have been in the biz for long, long time and keep up with the mortgage rules, they will always try to intimidate you into thinking they are right and you are wrong.

The Indecisive

These are the agents who cannot make up their minds.  They promise to meet with you—then they don’t. They swear that they are going to send you referrals—then they don’t.  There is a problem that cropped up with a deal and they promise to come up with a solution (or call you)—then they don’t.  Their indecision only serves to frustrate you, and you don’t need that in your life. 

The Negative Nellies

If you hang around with negative real estate agents, you’ll find that you’re buying into their negativity.  Nothing seems to turn out for them.  They complain that they can’t find clients.  The last 3 deals fell through. Not only are they negative, they tend to blame others for their problems.  You don’t need that kind of person in your life.

The Abuser

This is the person that verbally (or via email) abuses you.  Yells. Swears. Or blames you for everything and does not let you forget how stupid you are. That person respects no one.  Simply tell them you no longer want to do business with them and run (don’t walk) away—even if it means losing a commission.  It’s your self-esteem that is at stake here, and in sales and in life, you cannot afford to work with this type of person—ever!
