Lock Boxes! AGAIN?


I can’t believe it... but there are still seller’s out there that insist on not having a lock box on their home. To make matters worse, the agent can’t even pick up a key at the office. Their  agent has to let them in!

Joni StaplesAnd why is this?

I can’t imagine.

Guess what happened.


Their agent was out of town and someone from Houston wanted to show the home.

? ? ?

After showing a property where the seller required their agent to accompany me, I actually had a buyer say,

“I do not want to look at any more of their listings if they are going to accompany us for every showing.”

My question was,

“What if they have the perfect house for you?”

Their answer,

“I won’t know what I am missing, now will I...   Because I won’t see it.”


Pretty drastic?

Maybe..... but they were the buyer and I was working for them.

Insist that your agent put your listing with a showing service that verifies that the person calling to show your home is a licensed real estate agent. Then you will not have to worry that someone is sitting in front of their home calling and saying...

This is Jane Doe with 123 Realty and I would like to show your listing at....  

We are unable to personally know all of the agents that could show your home. The showing service has a system that verifies that the agent is licensed and works for a REAL company. Besides all of that... The showing service will email you every time that the home is shown AND send you the feedback that the showing agent provides.


No more Lock Box Worries!

When you are thinking about selling on the north end of Lake Livingston, give me a call! I put ALL of my listings with the showing service!
