Being A Part-Time Agent Should Not Mean You Give Part-Time Service

Being A Part-Time Agent Should Not Mean You Give Part-Time Service

Being a real estate agent comes with many challenges and if you’re part-time it comes with an added layer of challenges. I have no problem with an agent being part-time but, what I do have a problem with is giving part-time service. Clients deserve full-time service – no exceptions. If you’re going to be in real estate part-time you need to have the flexibility to be able to deliver full-time service and with that comes full-time availability.

 Part-Time Real Estate Agents


I recently worked with a part-time agent on a transaction and it was disturbing to me how many times I heard something couldn’t be done for a couple days because of this agent’s full-time job or how often I was asked to do something because of her obligations at her day job. Everything revolved around what her schedule was for her full-time job. It made me wonder if her clients knew that her day job clearly came first. I got my answer the day they called and asked me how to order condo documents because she wasn’t available to guide them through it.

Part-Time Real Estate Agents 

If I were buying or selling a home I’d want full-time representation, full-time commitment, and full-time expertise. Your clients deserve that and so does the agent you work with on a transaction. No client should have to contact the agent representing the other party in a transaction for guidance nor should the other agent you're working with have to complete tasks that are your responsibility because your day job prohibits you from doing them.
