We've got funds at the ready, but getting to view the properties we would like to view is like pulling teeth. And even though we didn't expect great service - these are property agents after all - the attitude was shocking all the same.
At first, the agent showed us a few properties - which were not to brief. We thought it polite to go with the flow at first as we thought it part of the process. When we didn't find any property to our liking (as they were not per brief) the interest waned and it became even more difficult to view the properties we wanted to view. When we stressed and asked to be shown more properties, we were expected to consider making 'offers' by looking at the photos on their website! I found it especially shocking that all the while the insinuation was on us being time wasters.
Found the agents generally dis-interested and lazy at worst. Every question felt like asking a teen for a favour. Thankfully they are not the sole reps of some properties we like!
What agent could do to change your mind?
1. Listen to the requirements
2. Adhere to the requirements and
3. Not decide for us
