I was talking to a new client just today and they were complaining about the realtor that he and his wife had had a long relationship with before they ran into me. They have worked with this realtor for decades and all of the sudden realized that they just were not a fit anymore. They started to notice that their agent was calling less and providing less market information and were not there as often to answer basic real estate questions. A brokerage relationship can be much like any relationship or even a marriage. Over time, they can drift apart. Here’s what I mean. In the beginning the agent focuses a ton of attention to their new buyer. They woo them with exciting new listings and spend hours with them nurturing their purchase. They get to closing and then they are nowhere to be found. This is a simplified version of it, but it happens. The new clients from above were actually quite happy with their broker for many years and that broker was there for them. Over the years, however, that relationship started to slip. I guess they could consider going to a marriage counselor to try to save the relationship… But seriously, that relationship needs to be nurtured. The broker should want to be there for you after the closing and through the years. If not, swipe left. Or is it swipe right? I don’t know, I’m married. Swipe whichever way it is to go to the next qualified broker in that virtual Realtor/Client dating app! I know the right broker is out there for you.. Who knows, it might be me!
