I’m beginning to wonder if this is a problem that is peculiar to me and not to the rest of you.
The problem is MLS agents who show my listings and leave without making certain the house is secure. In otherwords, MLS agents who don’t check to make certain all of the exterior doors are locked.
In yesterday example, out of the five possible choices, three had been left unlocked.
When I call it to their attention, rarely are they willing to take the blame, instead saying that their client must have used that door and forgotten to relock it.
All I know is that the homeowner feels, and rightly so, that it’s the Realtor’s duty to protect the property during and after it has been shown.
If I’m going to have to accompany every agent who shows my listinngs, I’m not going to be willing to equally share the commissions.
