Industry leaders are cautioning agents working Toronto’s west end, warning them about a seemingly ideal client intent on luring them to vacant properties.
Four months after having its hand slapped by TREB, this online brokerage is closing its doors.
I know a part time agent who could not get his clients into a property quickly enough before it sold because of his schedule. While it's not everyday that a home sells on day 1 for this reason alone part time agents need to let their clients know that this could happen. It's the reality of working a 40hr week in another job. Not to mention I think the employer should know too. As an employer I would be furious to know my employees are browsing MLS on my time and calling in sick to do deals.
Call me crazy, but my experience by and large is that part-timers are part-time for a reason. They lack the professionalism, talent, and commitment to succeed as a full-time real estate professional, and need that other job to make ends meet. I get that there are exceptions to every rule, but I don't want to be "that guy" that greets my seller when they walk in the door of Home Depot on Saturday afternoon, or picks them up from a restaurant in my cab...be a pro, be full-time, your clients deserve that.
I am part time only to build my client base until its sufficient to earn a steady living without the winter soft spots etc. I have been "part time" as some call it for a few years and have been more successful than alot of full time desk sitter agents in a 40 agent office ( 4th in ranks ). I am completely dedicated to my clients satisfaction and requests and make sure everything is done in a timely manner... maybe its my work ethic but being part time is a word cause I work 16plus hours a day most of the time thats not "part time" to me !!!Cheers to all and sign those waivers !!!
