The agent was mad I didn't call him for the referral

I gave a referral out in an out of state  town.

The buyer is a good client of mine.

I checked the Active Rain people in that area and there were several.

I gave the referral out.

A few days later I had an agent call and upset, wondered why I didn't call him.

I told him I was looking for a Full Time Professional agent.

"I AM A FULL TIME AGENT" coarsely he answered.

 

"Sorry", I told him, but I didn't like his associations with some companies that I feel could be a detriment to my good client.

"What detriment???"

 

I responded...Zillow...I work with Professional agents that deal with other Professional sights.  Zillow is not a professional site and so I moved on.

CLICK!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Actually, Zillow was the last straw.  he was not a bad agent, but the other person had the edge.   Zillow was just the deciding straw.

 

I don't kow how this agent gound out the info but that is my feeling and also it was my clients feeling that his property not be on zillow in any shape or for.
