So, you’ve gone through the process of selling your home. All contingencies have been satisfied and the appraisal has been completed and your listing agent let’s you know that “we are clear to close”. Relief is what you are feeling, then your agent tells you the buyer needs to do their final walk through before signing for the home. The stress returns. It really doesn’t need to be stressful.

In this article I would like to discuss an uncomfortable aspect of my job that is essential to my growth. Customer feedback, reviews and surveys are great tools to use in order to get honest feedback about a real estate agents performance.
