Why You Should Not Use Multiple Agents

Posted in Choosing a Realtor,Realtor's Job,What do I Buy? by Jeff Dowler on August 2, 2007


I’m sorry for being somewhat absent in the last week. Between a very heavy work schedule, several days away in the desert for a quick (and short) vacation), a business trip to San Francisco on blogging, and other personal stuff, it has been really busy.

I suppose those are not good excuses, but I feel badly nonetheless.

Anyhow, one of the issues that I have seen recently is the situation where buyers (new AND experienced) are using the services of multiple agents without commiting to any particular one.

 As a consumer, and a REALTOR(R), I don’t understand this approach. Sure, you have the right to handle your search this way, but I don’t see what advantages you are gaining by doing so. I’m sure you must have your reasons.

If you perceive there are some good reasons to not commit to an agent and solicit assistance from multiple people, I would love to know – honestly, I would, ‘cos I just don’t understand. Perhaps there are things that we agents need to better understand.

I just wrote a longer blog about this and wanted to share it with you. I welcome your comments.
