America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals
It is so astonishing that I am blogging about this, as I cannot fathom a seasoned agent (or educated adult for that matter), spelling their clients name wrong.... much less a client that gives you 100 listings a year!
In 2010, every agent with the slightest amount of tech savvy would know that you can Google virtually anything in 2 seconds if you are unsure (or forgot to read your listing agreement). Heck, Google will even correct you if you're mistaken!
I'm forgiving of the occasional misspelled word or typo, and I realize most MLS sites don't have spell check (which we are all way too accustomed). However, isn't listing data important enough to check, double check, and triple check? Not only to make sure you know whose property you are listing, but so the buyer's agent knows who to write the offer to?
Not counting the myriad of funny variations I see on "bank of record"... here are the best of 2010:
Last, definitely not least, but by far my favorite....
"Fanny May" or "Fannie Mai"... instead of "Fannie Mae".... Really?
Do these people watch the news? Heck, are you even alive and living in the United States? This is an easy one guys, come on!
Agents, please remember - When the bank asks you to upload the listing image for review… It's not so they can spell check it for you!
If you are a bank or asset manager looking for an agent that can spell your name right at the very least, don't hesitate to contact me today, or visit us on the web at www.PacificNorthwestREO.com for your all of your REO needs.
