Interesting bit of gossip

Ok, so one of our advocates was speaking to a fairly high profile real estate agent (who shall remain un-named) who informs us that he has been having a twitter stouch with a vocal buyers advocate (who shall also remain un-named).   This buyers agent has been commenting in the paper that it was a ‘buyers advocacy party’ at a recent auction that they attended, however the real estate agent who was directing the auction informs us that this particular advocate was not even there, this real estate agent says he sick of buyers agents like this seeking media coverage!… I’m not sure if you have noticed it but there are a heap of buyers advocates chasing PR and media coverage, particularly in the Sunday papers, they are often making comments on auctions that we are told they were not present for… We have also heard that there is a particular advocate (relatively new to the industry) who is super media hungry who keeps telling agents that she is bidding for clients at their auctions then never shows up – this is a clear sign that she has never worked in the industry before because if she had I’m confident she would respect their job, time and the feedback they are likely offering their clients based on her advice.   Buyers agents (like ourselves) need to remember that we only have a job if the agents want to work with us in some capacity – we must create respectful relationships…
