The Critter and Castle Sitting Transaction Broker
The listing agent said she had to be present for all showings at the sellers request. The sellers have a nervous bird. So apparently, the LA has a special way with birds and forgot to mention this on the agent notes at the bottom of the MLS. When we arrived at the property she met us at the door and introduced herself and then couldn’t shout up!
“Are you looking for this type house?”
“Do you want a house in this other neighborhood?”
“Did you know….”
“I have a house listed over….”
At the end of the day I emailed all the involved agents – feedback for each showing. (This way they don’t have to hunt me down and my memories of each is fresh.) And I mentioned to the bird watching agent that we would like to go back, but with out her supervision.
“Well, I’ll talk to the owners………but they like me there at the house.” Listing agent
“Well, don’t you think you should disclose this?” Me
“No, I’m only a transaction broker.” Listing agent
Summary: The fact that the Listing Agent is a Transaction Broker must be a factor in her trying to sell us every other listing she has listed! And being a T.B. is a big factor in her house sitting for birds.
I think there was a bird in this ambush!
