Yes, and I like to get them. I like to see how other agents market their listings, what the houses look like, the prices, etc. I like the big picture view since I am very visual.

Against - I have the MLS if I want to see listings in their area I will go there. I opt out or block them.

Worse yet, is when their market is 25+ miles away or in the city.

Very against open spamming of new listings or any type of email campaign. I coudl get a couple of dozen a day. They ruin it when you actually have a new listing that may meet an agents clients who say you showed another home to that may like this one

I am clearly aligned with your feelings on the matter.  I was interupted at lunch by an agent today while having lunch with my husband and dear friend for her to tell me about a "deal" she has listed.  Ummm, yeah, it's in the MLS right?  Ugh.

I'm neutral. I don't do blast emails. There are a few I like to get, because they are resort properties from out of my area, and I like seeing what's available. I unsubscribe when it's an agent from my area. I can see the new listing in the MLS, and I can see it's had a price reduction in my MLS as well.

I get several per day.  Tend not to help me out for the most part.  Most of the ones I get are out of the area agents/homes.  I get a couple local ones from agents I've done business with.  Sometimes I go to their Brokers Opens for fun, sometimes because they're in my area (one was two doors down from me).
