We have a Code of Ethics for a reason. Here’s one.

Don't make me sic TLW on ya!!!!Hi Nasty REALTOR(R),
 
My Seller, Ms Nice Lady, just forwarded me this email from you:
 
“I am not comfortable in working with a realtor that can’t give me a code so that I can show a home.  You should not be comfortable working with a realtor that can’t offer anymore assistance than this.  There are a LOT of buyers out there right now.  You are missing out on a huge opportunity as a seller.  Perhaps you might be interested in changing realtors.  This obviously isn’t working for you.”
 

The showing instructions for Ms Nice Lady’s unit are in  the MLS. I’m not quite sure why you had difficulty getting the code since all you had to do was click on the “Request a Showing” button. Any way your email coming from a REALTOR(R) is very disheartening. Ms Nice Lady chose the level of service that she needed since she is a very experienced Seller and knows that I am only a phone call away if she needs me.
 
In the future, please refrain from these types of comments since it is a clear violation of our REALTOR(R) CoE.
 
Article 15

 

  • REALTORS® shall not knowingly or recklessly make false or misleading statements about competitors, their businesses, or their business practices. (Amended 1/92)

I take this stuff very serious. However, this time, I will let it slide. Please conduct yourself accordingly in the future.
END OF EMAIL

You know this is the first time I have EVER taken a Limited Service Listing. The Seller happens to be a friend of mine who has bought and sold numerous properties from me over the years. This email pissed her off as it did me. I know I would never send a Seller an email like this. Would you?
