I just finished giving an agent a counter to an offer his clients made on one of my listings. He questioned me on an issue. He authoritatively explained to me what the paragraph meant and condescendingly asked how long I had been in Real Estate.
I've been waiting for this one! Ok, here's a rendition of just how it went down:
Good old boy Agent: "... That's what that paragraph says! Mirela, how long have you been in Real Estate?" You have to envision his tone here, done in that superior "teacher to student" voice that an older, southern man naturally assumes when dealing with a young woman.
Me: "I've been a Realtor since 1988. I am a Broker in Charge in both South Carolina AND North Carolina. I am a GRI, ABR, currently taking RLI classes and ..."
Good old boy Agent: "OK, OK, OK, fine!" He quickly interrupted my barrage of accreditations. "Sorry!" he mustered in a muffled tone. Translation - "Sorry!" as in "sorry, I couldn't put one over on you"...
Ah, education, it sure comes in handy!
