Here in Minnesota many of the agents including myself personally present our offers.
Especially in Multiple offer situations.
A few years back there was 3 of us chatting waiting to be called in.
When the agent came out one of the other agents, (a young lady from a large agency) jumped up and proclaimed to be first.
She came out with a smirk and told us...Good Luck, I have it in the bag.
The other agent went next and then myself.
I was in with the agent and the sellers for a longer time than the other two.
After they had no more questions I went outside with the others.
5 minutes later I was told to come back in and the other two we sent away. The young agent wanted to talk with the Sellers again, but the sellers said no.
I was told my offer was NOT the highest. But, If my clients would come up in their offer by $2500 they would accept it as written.
I excused myself old my client and she said YES!!
The sellers were happy.
But, why did they not take the higher offer of the other agent?
Because, she sat down with the sellers and proclaimed that her agency was the best in the area and that SHE personally had never lost a multiple offer bid.
The sellers were totally put off by her attitude and that is why they countered my clients offer with less money than the other agents offer. To them Professionalism was important.
So, are you losing out on multiple offers because of your agent? You may want to listen more closely to that person before you write the next offer.
