Your Corona CA Real Estate Agent Should Respect Your Privacy. Do They?
One of the issues that many people are concerned about when they buy or sell a home in Corona is their privacy. It’s the reason that many home sellers in Corona do not want a sign in the yard or a buyer may not want to use their friend because of the financial information that must be shared. All of these concerns are valid. Much of the information about real estate is public information, however, there is a certain professional decorum that I believe most people should be able to expect from their Corona Realtor. Part of most people’s selection process when choosing a real estate agent is to select someone that they feel they can trust.
This hit home for me recently as I stood talking with a group of co-workers recently. As we stood in the open public bantering, one of my co-workers came across a person that they knew. As they shouted out to them, the person drew near the group. Much to my surprise, the Real Estate Agent then asked the person, “How’s your house coming along with the bank? Did they give you a loan modification?” As the person stood there sort of like a deer in the headlights, the Real Estate Agent turns to the group and says, “Yeah, I had to do a BPO on their house.” After mumbling a few words but avoiding a direct answer, the person quickly moved away from the group. They were mortified and so was I. Once alone with the other agent, I did voice my concern about the interaction. It just made me thin about how careless people can become when they are so used to dealing with a certain issue. Yes, real estate agents are dealing with loan modification situations, BPO’s (Broker Price Opinion), short sales and foreclosures everyday. It has become part of the norm and really most have probably become somewhat desensitized to the whole phenomenon. However, it does not mean that the rest of the world is. This is why carefully selecting a real estate agent is crucial. Worrying about whether the next time you see your real estate agent in public, they are going to mention something highly personal or not. Proceed with caution.
