If stupid could fly that agent would be the jet.  What else can one say about that?

UnfreakinBELIEVABLE. That mindset is so 2005 and them days are GONE!
I have in recent years instituted a policy that where property management companies are concerned, with rare exception, I don't want the listing and I don't want to represent the buyer. How to have zero control over a situation.

Paul,

What a cavalier way to handle this!  Perhaps, it is time to move and look for something else.  A

Probably not an attitude unique to property managers, it seems to be prevalent with many people.

Well there ya go. Be glad he's not out selling most of the time. If it wasn't your deal, you should have let it crash.

Only if they have both sides of the deal...I have had similar problems trying to do rental placements. Did you try speaking with the broker or was the PM the broker?

Yeah, I've had a few regular agents like that.  I don't do paperwork for them and if it falls out due to their incompetance, oh well.

WOW!  Sounds like someone may have wanted to sell that unit himself and get both sides?  Have run into that one.  Bold enough where they said, "don't worry, if your buyer falls through I already have one."  Some do not play well in the sandbox.

Some agents just don't get it and ignore timelines. They can be full time sales agents and don't have to be property managers.

Hi Paul - Wow. What an attitude. Property managers live in a different universe, and they can stay there. We have very little crossover in Colorado, and the state just started licensing property managers - maybe they'll get better, having to answer to the real estate commission.
