I was in a class the other day – there were also 3 other broker/owners (from 3 different firms) in that same class.
Overheard 1 broker/owner make a derogatory comment about one of their agents – a top producing agent – an agent who has an impeccable reputation both inside (and out) of the industry.
I was in shock. Couldn’t believe that a broker/owner was opening their YAP about one of their agents where someone could hear – and – then I was all – “YES! Everything ISN’T all right in their world” (it happens to be an agent we would love to have at our firm, an agent we’ve been passively recruiting for a couple months now).
That Broker/Owner just gave me the “in” I needed with that agent.
