Should a realtor do a short sale on their own property

Can a real estate agent do a short sale on their own property? I would strongly advise against it. I would tell that agent to refer their property to another associate. Why? Because it avoids conflict of interest, lenders prefer to work with a third party negotiator and finally-it is just too personal. The ability to look at these cases objectively is critical for everyone involved.
