Signs You Have a Bad Real Estate Agent

Are you looking to buy a house? Your buddy says his Aunt Nancy is a real estate agent, so you sign a contract with her. Then you don’t hear anything from Nancy—for two weeks. Finally, she calls with the “perfect” house: a ranch-style home. But you told her you want a colonial. Oh, and it’s $100,000 over your budget!

Or are you selling your house? A friend from work told you her cousin Vernon just got his real estate license, so you decide to give ol’ Vern a try. Fast-forward a few months. Vernon has held a couple of open houses and posted your house on his website, but nobody is coming to see it. You look on Zillow and Trulia, and it’s not on either site.

So what happened? In both cases, you hired a bad real estate agent. We know this because nothing is happening in either scenario: Aunt Nancy can’t find the right house and ol’ Vern is just plain incompetent, which would make anyone feel frustrated and angry.

Find a trusted real estate agent we recommend in your area.

So what should you do? Get rid of Aunt Nancy and Cousin Vernon and talk to a real estate Endorsed Local Provider (ELP). These people are great real estate agents. Each has been a full-time agent for at least two years, they’re invested in their local community, they close more deals than 90% of their competitors, and they’re great communicators with the heart of a teacher.

Because some real estate agents—like Aunt Nancy and Cousin Vernon—are just plain bad at their job, it’s important to know what the signs are. We’ll break them down by both buyer’s agents and seller’s agents. That way you’ll know what to watch for and how to get out of either bad situation.

If You’re Buying

A buyer’s agent is responsible for helping you find the best house. They take the time to listen to your needs, understand your budget, and educate you about the market where you’re looking. Once you’ve found the right house, they negotiate a great price and keep you in the loop as the transaction progresses. At least, that’s what they’re supposed to do.

Here are five signs you have a bad buyer’s agent:

1.

Communication Issues

One of the most common complaints home buyers have about their real estate agents is that they can’t get in touch with them. The buyers call. They text. They email. And what do they hear back? Crickets. This is especially troubling in a hot housing market, where it’s so important to move quickly when you find a home you like. Poor communication will cause you to miss out on opportunities to buy the house you really want.

2. Power Struggles

We’ll admit that it takes a certain level of swagger to walk a home buyer through (what’s probably) the most expensive purchase they’ll ever make. But that does not mean your real estate agent can forget who’s the boss. You. Are. The. Boss. An agent who pressures you to buy a home you aren’t sure about or one that’s out of your budget is more interested in their commission than helping you find the best home for you and your family.

An agent who pressures you to buy a home you aren’t sure about or one that’s out of your budget is more interested in their commission than helping you find the best home for you and your family.

3. Lack of Leadership

The flip side of this coin is an agent who’s merely a yes-man and doesn’t offer any guidance. You want an agent who’ll give you honest advice based on their research and experience—even when they know you may not like what they have to say. A wishy-washy agent may not have the experience they need to negotiate a good deal on your new home—or they just may not be cut out for the job.

4. Abundance of Attitude

As we mentioned, you want your agent to have confidence in their abilities. But that doesn’t give them a license to be a jerk. No matter how many questions you have or how basic they may be, your agent should be patient enough to answer each one without throwing a ton of jargon at you. And you must be able to trust your agent to behave professionally on your behalf. It’s simple: You don’t have to put up with an arrogant, condescending or just plain rude agent.

5.

You’re Getting Nowhere

It’s been months. You aren’t any closer to buying a home than when you started. That’s a big problem. Now, if you’re being overly critical of the homes your agent is showing you, then this could be your fault. But if your agent isn’t showing you any homes whatsoever or, even worse, keeps showing you homes that you’ve already said aren’t right for you, they’re wasting your time.

If you’re reading through this list and find yourself nodding along, or if little lightbulbs are lighting up in your head, it’s probably time to hire a new agent.

If You’re Selling

A seller’s agent (sometimes called a listing agent) is so important when you’re selling a house. A great one educates you about the market in your neighborhood and helps you set the correct price. They take care of all the marketing to make sure that interested and qualified buyers see it. They give you tips about staging your home for showings and help make sure the curb appeal is actually, you know, appealing. Finally, they’re expert negotiators who make sure you get the most value out of your sale.

Of course, a bad agent doesn’t do these things. Here are five signs you have a bad listing agent:

1. Less Than Two Years of Full-Time Experience

This is a huge deal-breaker for a seller’s agent. An inexperienced agent doesn’t have the industry contacts or (sometimes) even the know-how to handle the home-selling process. Misfiled paperwork or a missed deadline can easily botch your home sale. And you need an experienced negotiator—both for the sale price and any repairs that may come up after the home inspection. You cannot fake experience.

2. Lack of Communication

You shouldn’t be waiting around to hear from your real estate agent. There are so many ways for your agent to stay in contact with you: There’s text messaging, email and, heck, there’s even video chat. But if you find yourself always asking your agent for updates—or if you get no answers—that’s a massive red flag. Your agent should make it a priority to keep you in the loop, even if nothing new has happened.

3. Poor Marketing

Your agent’s job is to attract as many potential customers as possible to view your home—and that means a lot more than putting a sign in your yard and posting a photo on their website. In the industry, that’s known as “Post and Pray.” It’s when you post a sign in front of a home and pray someone buys it. We’re big believers in the power of prayer, but we also believe in marketing and hard work. Ask to see your agent’s marketing plan for your home. Make sure you understand why they choose some venues instead of others. They may have a good reason, but that’s something they need to explain to you.

Your agent’s job is to attract as many potential customers as possible to view your home—and that means a lot more than putting a sign in your yard and posting a photo on their website.

4. Misplaced Priorities

The math is pretty easy when it comes to an agent’s commission: The more expensive the house is, the bigger the commission will be. But that fact should never come into play in the way an agent represents his clients. Is your agent treating you as a “lesser” client just because of the price point of your home? Here’s what to watch for: lack of communication, showing up late for appointments, little patience for answering questions, and even pressure to decrease your asking price without giving any evidence to support that decision. A good real estate agent will show you a list of all the houses for sale in your neighborhood, the asking prices of houses similar to yours and the final prices of homes that recently sold. If your agent isn’t doing any of these things, it’s a major sign that something isn’t right.

5. Nothing’s Happening

Here’s the bottom line: Real estate is a results-based business. If it’s been weeks with no showings, no calls and no interest, it’s time for a “come to Jesus” meeting with your agent. In this meeting, your agent had better have some new ideas for attracting buyers, and they’d better be able to explain how those ideas will help you sell your home. If they don’t, or if they say they will and the problem persists, stop wasting your time with the wrong agent.

Here’s the bottom line: Real estate is a results-based business. If it’s been weeks with no showings, no calls and no interest, it’s time for a meeting with your agent.

What to Do if You Have a Bad Real Estate Agent

You’ve tried speaking with your agent. You’ve had not one, but several “Come to Jesus” meetings, and they’re just not coming around. It’s time to let them go.

But you have to be careful and read your contract. Usually, they’ll have you sign an exclusive buyer’s or seller’s agreement that has a defined expiration date. The first thing to do is speak with the agent’s broker and ask them to let you out of the deal. Brokers don’t want to be known as “terrible” in their communities.

If that doesn’t work, it may be time to get a lawyer involved. But if that’s too expensive or impractical, or if nothing else works, you may just have to wait out the contract. If your agent has any integrity at all, it shouldn’t come to this.

In the meantime, you can start interviewing a replacement.    

How to Avoid Hiring a Bad Agent in the First Place

Now that we know what a bad real estate agent looks like, let’s talk about how to avoid this whole sordid business from the beginning.

The awesome thing is that we’ve made it really easy for you. All you need to do is get in touch with one of our real estate ELPs. These agents are the best of the best. We wouldn’t endorse them otherwise. Each one goes through a thorough vetting process to make sure they close more houses than 90% of the agents in their market. They have the heart of a teacher and will walk with you through every step of the process, making sure you understand exactly what’s happening so you can make the best and wisest decisions throughout your home-buying or home-selling process.

Realtor Vs. Real Estate Agent: Differences & Similarties

Key Takeaways


What is the difference between a Realtor vs. real estate agent?

If you are relatively new to real estate, chances are you have asked yourself about the differences between today’s most popular real estate professions. You may have noticed various industry titles being thrown around, such as real estate agent, Realtor, broker, or salesperson. This can get confusing, especially as some of these titles are often used interchangeably, even though there are distinct differences. Understanding the distinctions between “Realtor vs. real estate agent,” as well as real estate broker, can clarify what type of real estate professional may best suit your needs.

Realtor Vs. Real Estate Agent: Key Differences

The biggest difference between a real estate agent and a Realtor comes down to the certifications for each. You may have heard the terms used interchangeably, and perhaps you have wondered what the difference is between the two. Simply put, while they complete similar jobs, they are held to different standards as established by the National Association of Realtors. To better understand “Realtor vs. agent,” let’s take a closer look at the role of a real estate agent, followed by the role of a Realtor and the qualifications necessary for each.

What Is A Real Estate Agent?

A real estate agent is a professional who assists in buying and selling properties and has obtained a real estate license to do so. Real estate agents can work with residential as well as commercial properties depending on their specialty. Agents can also practice with a certain focus, like a listing or buyer’s agent and a rental agent. The difference between a listing and buyer agent comes down to their primary clientele: listing agents work with sellers to list a home, while buyers agents help aspiring homeowners search for properties. On the other hand, Rental agents work with potential tenants to find rental units within a given area.

To become a real estate agent, professionals must pass a state examination after taking the required coursework. Although licensing requirements vary by state, the average real estate agent will have completed 30 to 90 hours of coursework and must become knowledgeable about local, state, and national real estate laws and practices. Depending on the state, agents are often required to continue their education and renew their licenses every one to two years.

How To Become A Real Estate Agent

  1. Research the age and education requirements in your state.

  2. Enroll in approved real estate education courses either in person or online.

  3. Submit an application (and necessary paperwork) to take the final licensing exam.

  4. Take the real estate license exam and meet the minimum score in your state.

  5. Work with a licensed real estate broker and gain experience.

  6. Apply for your license to begin practicing as an agent.

  7. Continue your education and renew certifications as needed.

How Do Real Estate Agents Earn Money?

Real estate agents earn money through commission each time they help clients successfully buy or sell a home. Commission is typically between four and six percent of the sale price of a given property and is split between each broker and agent involved in the transaction. Let’s say a property sells at $350,000 with a six percent commission. The listing agent and broker would each get roughly 1.5 percent of the total commission, totaling around $5,250. The buyer’s agent and the broker would also receive the same amount. Real estate agents often work with multiple clients simultaneously to help ensure a stable stream of income through commissions.

What Is A Realtor?

A Realtor is a real estate agent who is an active member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Founded in 1908, the NAR is the largest trade association in the United States. Active real estate agents who would like to join the organization must have a valid real estate license and an immaculate professional conduct record. Real estate agents have an incentive to join due to its good reputation, attracting more clients. All Realtors are required to adhere to an extensive Code of Ethics, so consumers may feel at ease knowing that they are working with agents who are thoroughly vetted and have sworn to uphold certain professional standards.

According to the NAR, about half of all real estate agents in the United States are certified Realtors. Many real estate agents choose this path because the organization actively works to protect its members’ interests. As a trade association, the NAR has strong bargaining power in both state and federal governments. This influence can be used to obtain better legal protections and benefits for Realtors across the country. Essentially, while it is not required to become a Realtor, some real estate agents will find this path to be in their best interest.
Two other ways Realtors are different from real estate agents is that they abide by a Code of Ethics and 17 additional Articles.

Code Of Ethics

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) created the Code of Ethics as an enforceable set of ethical guidelines that realtors must uphold and are strictly enforced by real estate boards. It states realtors’ duties to clients and customers, the public, and other realtors, which are more limiting than state guidelines.

The Code of Ethics comprises 17 articles covering different areas of professional standards of practice that must be upheld. Articles one through nine make up a Realtor’s duty to their clients and customers. Articles 10 through 14 state a Realtor’s duty to the public. And Articles 15 through 17 define a Realtor’s duty to other Realtors.

The following are summaries of the ethical duties realtors promise to abide by:

17 Articles
  1. Promote their clients’ interests before their own and treat all parties involved honestly.

  2. Avoid exaggerating, misrepresenting, or withholding facts about the property or transaction that are within the scope of their real estate license.

  3. Cooperate with other brokers when it is in their client’s best interest.

  4. Disclose with their client if they are working with another member of their existing client’s family.

  5. Avoid providing professional services regarding a property they have an interest in, unless it is disclosed to the client.

  6. Receive the client’s consent and knowledge before accepting any form of payment or commission.

  7. Disclose to all parties and receive consent from their client if a payment is to be received from more than one party involved in a transaction.

  8. Keep personal funds and clients’ funds separated.

  9. Ensure all agreements are clearly and understandably communicated between all parties involved in a transaction, and that each party receives a copy of each agreement.

  10. Refrain from discriminating against any person based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

  11. Competently abide by standards of practice in their real estate discipline, and do not provide services they are unqualified for.

  12. Remain truthful in their advertising and marketing materials.

  13. Do not practice law if they are not authorized to do so.

  14. Present all evidence and cooperate if charged with unethical practice.

  15. Refrain from making false or misleading statements about other real estate professionals.

  16. Do not interfere in another realtor’s contractual relationships.

  17. Handle disputes with other realtors through arbitration instead of litigation.

Is The Word Realtor Always Capitalized?

The word “Realtor” is always capitalized, as the National Association of Realtors has trademarked the term. This is one nominal difference between Realtor and agent, though it can be helpful to note. In 1916, the NAR coined the term “Realtor” as a way for members to distinguish themselves from non-members, later obtaining a copyright and trademark in 1950. The trademark is still upheld by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office today.

How To Become A Realtor

  1. Identify and join the local chapter of the NAR in your county or state.

  2. Pay your dues to be a part of the association.

  3. Take and pass an online course on the Code of Ethics.

  4. Adhere to the NAR’s standards of practice throughout your career.

  5. Retake the online course every four years to maintain the certification.

Broker Vs Realtor

To summarize a real estate agent vs. a Realtor, a real estate agent is a real estate professional with a valid license. Agents help people buy and sell both commercial and residential properties. Agents can also become Realtors, active and paying members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). In this sense, there is generally no difference between real estate agents and Realtors, other than distinguishing between members and non-members of the NAR when it comes to professional duties.

Key professional differences do, however, come into play when looking at a real estate broker vs. Realtor. A broker is a professional who has taken additional education and has passed a special broker’s licensing exam. Although broker exams differ from state to state, the coursework covers in-depth legal issues, operating brokerages, investments, construction, and property management. Real estate agents are often required to practice for several years before they can take the broker’s exam. Brokers are responsible for managing real estate firms and their agents, ensuring legal compliance, and reviewing contracts. There are three main types of real estate brokers:

  • Designated Broker: Almost every real estate office has a designated broker who ensures the agents are following real estate law. The designated or principal broker is responsible for making sure operations comply. They are paid a commission on top of a base salary.

  • Associate Broker: Associate brokers work under designated brokers to help with real estate law. They do not, however, oversee real estate agents or Realtors directly.

  • Managing Broker: Managing brokers are in charge of the day-to-day operations at real estate firms, such as managing and hiring agents. In some offices, managing brokers also manage the administrative work.

While the difference between a real estate agent and a Realtor comes down to professional certifications, the difference between broker and Realtor is much more significant. The roles and responsibilities handled by each professional are different. Although Realtors can become brokers (and vice versa), the two terms are not interchangeable.

How Do Brokers Earn Money?

Real estate brokers earn money through commission, either as a portion of an agent’s deal or their own deals. The real estate agents that work underneath them are required to split the commission with each transaction. Brokers can then increase the amount of income they can make by closing their own deals and earning commission they are not required to split with the rest of the team.

Why Should I Work With A Real Estate Professional?

Any type of buyer or seller should consider working with a real estate professional due to the unique skills and expertise they have to offer. Here are just a few of their qualifications to take into consideration:

  • Experience: A real estate professional’s sole job is to understand the inner workings of property buying and selling processes. They will inform clients so that they may navigate the process as smoothly as possible.

  • Location-specific knowledge: A professional will know the ins and outs of local markets, including comparable properties, price points, schools and crime rates. They can also help determine fair and competitive prices, respective to the market and property type.

  • Negotiation: Another advantage to working with a real estate professional is their ability to serve as a buffer between parties involved. During the negotiation process, agents often help keep waters calm between buyers and sellers, acting as the middlemen.

  • Professional Connections: Real estate professionals maintain a network with other professionals and previous clients they have worked with. They can provide you with references, as well as help connect you with interested buyers or sellers if so desired.

However, that all being said, it is possible to work autonomously and without the help of a real estate professional. Those who do not mind putting in a lot of time conducting research and mind their due diligence can experience success in their endeavors.

Summary

By this time, hopefully, the difference between “Realtor vs. real estate agent,” as well as the distinction between agents and brokers, has been clarified. The real estate industry is robust, with talented professionals taking ownership of each of its unique niches. Whether or not you decide to work with an agent or broker or navigate buying a house on your own, it is important to acknowledge the important work done by real estate professionals.
