What exactly is a "premier agent"? I think most buyers and sellers think that there is some nice person or department at Zillow headquarters that carefully culls the lists of agents and offers premier positions to agents that have strong track records in each particular location. I hate to burst your bubble on this, but nothing could be further from the truth.
The answer is "Not necessarily!" Most agents in Westchester County do not have a great number of listings...if any. There are a handful of agents that do and most trumpet that fact as a sign of great success.
Trust is hard because so many people are indeed dishonest. There are times where I feel like I'm shooting craps when I take on a new client, with the odds stacked against me in the trust department. Sadly, I'm often quite certain that the client has the same issue with me.
