No one wants to really say no if they can help it, but there are more than enough times where the opportunity presents itself. It’s a good thing to say no when you need to, and when it comes to real estate agents, you should be more receptive to saying no than anything else. After all, if you’re buying or selling a home, it’s money coming out of your pocket - not theirs. And we’re talking about virtually any part of the process, but mostly when it comes to selecting one for your home.
Not every real estate agent will perform in the way that you’d expect them to, and since you will only use one of them, you’ll want the best one. Agents and brokers are generally great at selling themselves and the solutions that they can provide for your home. Many of them can, but they may do it at a price that you can’t afford to pay, and some may just rub you the wrong way. These are the people that you don’t want to deal with, and if you don’t, politely decline and move to the next potentially promising agent.
