Paul S. Henderson, Realtor, Tacoma Washington Can't say much about an agent who violates the COE and bad mouths other agents. If you've been there over 15 years, you have the loyalty and staying power.

Paul, it is possible that your success is intimidating to this person. People that lash out like that that don't even know you and haven't met you are unprofessional and will most likely fail if they continue to carry around negative attitude or hatred. That means they may not be confident in their ownselves, or their abilities to sell Real Estate as well as you can..maybe say a prayer for them.. and don't stoop to their levels.

Paul,

What a moron, I would send her a copy of "How to Win Friends and Influence People".  Doing that, she is already digging her grave.  A

Real Estate is a people business. As such, it will have its ups and downs. A glass of wine , and throwing the frisbee for my border collie helps my downs :).

Paul S. Henderson, Realtor, Tacoma Washington - not that I am much worried about that.

I feel bad when someone in my Sphere of Influence always promises to work with me and then decides to work with someone else for no real justification!

No, but I do when my clients relatives call another company agent to list their home.

There are 28 agents living in the same 1,036 home development that I live in.  Some are nasty and agressive and others are not.

In my area, we have over 42,000 agents and a population exceeding 5 million and the number has been increasing each year.  The odds are very high that multiple people will be listing in a particular farming area.

Paul, 

When you state "People say" are you referring to home owners or other agents?

The action to take, if any, is based on who 'people' are.

I would continue to take the high road with her, Paul.  Agents like this typically have a short shelf life.

Unless you hear it from her lips, give her the benefit of the doubt.  Call her and ask her.  There is anough pie to go around and kill her with kindness.  If all goes South, change your advertising to counteract her negative claims.  Good luck!

The more bothersome comment is regarding agents not showing her properties.  That is not legal here.
