Active Rain May 10, 2009

Chutzpah (short)

One of my agents has a listing in a very desirable part of her town. It expired not long ago, and we will put it back as active once some projects has been finished. In the interim, the sign has remained up, per the seller’s preference. 

An agent from out of town drove by, saw the sign, looked it up, saw the listing was expired, and instead of calling us, called the seller directly. Do I have a problem with that? Nope. I would do the same thing. 

The seller is, shall we say, a non-conformist. He got her voicemail message. 

He called her back at 1am. 

And she called us to complain! 

Now that takes a set.
