It broke my heart when I saw this info-graphic from Builder Online:
If I am reading that right, the WORST part of the home buyer experience is poor response time by their agent. Unacceptable! Buyers – you have the right, at ANY TIME, for any reason to fire your real estate agent. If you are not getting the service you expect and deserve, then you owe it to yourself and your agent to end the working relationship. Buying a home is too big of a deal to work with someone that isn’t giving you what you need.
And that concludes my unsolicited, big-sister advice.
