Don't panic

Jumping from Realtor to Realtor not necessarily a plan for success

Gazette staff June 1st, 2011

Think your Realtor isn’t doing enough to sell your home? Don’t fire him or her ... yet.

“Switching realtors every few months is not necessarily a strategy for success,” said Pat Hiban, a billion-dollar selling real estate agent and author of “6 Steps to 7 Figures,” a self-help guide for agents. “In this market, it’s not uncommon for a home to stay on the market for many months.

“The problem with switching agents frequently is that you eat up a lot of time with the learning curve with each agency change. Every time you fire an agent, you lose their institutional memory with regard to your house and your situation. Instead, you can try to reinvigorate their efforts.”

Hiban recommends getting Realtors back on track by asking him or her to accept all invitations and, most importantly, not to panic. —Gazette staff
