Anthony,

We always stay in the loop, and we communicated with the buyer and seller constantly during a transaction.  We also canceled trips if an escrow was in progress.  A

I handle the side of my client, whether it is the Buyer or the Seller.  If it is my listing and I get a buyer for it, I will pass them to another of our agents, even though it is legal to handle both sides in Indiana.

I handle everything.  Personal touch.  Control freak.  Clients hired me and expect answers when they call me, not "let me ask the transaction coordinator" or marketing guy.

Best to delegate what you can to good people and keep the projects that only you can do well.

I'm so old fashioned.  I do everything but monitor the paperwork, at least once the contract is ratified.

Over the years we have several newer agents wanting to learn the biz. The assistants hired are taking benefited positions with local high companies.

Few if any wanting to enter the overcrowded market. Right now just me and another agent.

I always handled all of it.... I think it's best to handle it yourself unless you have attorneys who do the p&s....and that's a bonus....
