South Florida Realtors®, doing all kinds of things behind your back!



South Florida Realtors®, doing all kinds of things behind your back!

Back in 2014, we posted a fun article about how REALTORS® act as “secret agents” for home buyers.  Just recently, we came across an interesting article posted on® about what the buyer’s agents do behind their backs.

Craig Donofrio writes, “Have you ever wondered what on Earth your real estate agent is doing behind your back?

No, we don’t mean anything underhanded, naughty, or downright felonious—far from it, in fact.  So relax.  What we’re talking about is a mystery: In the sometimes confusing, occasionally hectic, and always stressful world of buying and selling, what are your agents really doing behind the scenes?”

Donofrio mentions:

  • They shop property online
  • They go prospecting
  • They attend pitch sessions
  • They spend their own money on marketing
  • They write up offers and counteroffers
  • They stick around for inspections
  • They smooth bumps in the road
  • They keep you calm when the pressure’s on

Donofrio concludes, “Good agents don’t just hand you a house. They can also act as a therapist, making your sale much less stressful.

“People get emotional. You have to be a problem-solver and keep a positive approach and come up with a positive solution,” Friedman says. “It might not take a lot of time, but it takes emotional energy.”

Tell that to your therapist.”
