his is an issue that I have wrestled with as we are always encouraged to "touch" clients and prospective clients 33 times a year. One of my problems I have with this notion is that I don't want to be touched that much by anyone except the closest of friends and family.
Nothing is more irritating to a busy buyers agent who has multiple showing tours every day than finding a notation that they have to go and pick up keys at the brokerage - and return them once they are done.
When home buyers engage an agent they often expect us to be the repository of any and all neighborhood information. They often don’t see the need to do their own research because they can just pick the brains of their buyers agent.
