Says Realtor to us after not disclosing to him the address of a pocket listing [off market deal] we had known about. (This after his client contacted us directly interested in the property, and the selling agent made us swear on our grandmother’s grave not to disclose the address [publicly online] to anyone in order to post to our site.)
I have to ask, what does it complicate? You missing out on a deal, or your clients knowing about off market deals before you (essentially knowing more than you)? They already have complete access to MLS, so why not bring them the growing number of off market opportunities too?
It’s called transparency, social networking, and the power of the internet. Get used to it, and plan on losing some clients in the future. You almost lost one, but you’re lucky he’s loyal to you.
