You Can Lead a Horse to Water...

If you're a "motivated seller" and your home has been on the market for more than 4 months without an offer - it's your agent's fault.
If you're a "motivated buyer" and you've been looking for a home to purchase for longer than 8 weeks - it's your agent's fault.
I meet a lot of Buyers and Sellers who would agree with me here. But simply agreeing who's to blame doesn't solve the problem does it?
Here's the truth: You need an agent who is bold enough to tell you why your home is not selling and what to do about it. And you need to follow their lead. You need an agent who is honest enough to tell you why you're not finding what you're looking for in the market. And you need to listen to them.
And, for you agents out there, if you're bold and honest with your clients and they're not taking action...well...you need to respectfully move on from the situation and put your talents to use where they can make a difference.
Boldness and honesty is valuable in this market and you deserve to get paid for it.
