Using subterfuge to achieve a goal. The home owner called, saying he wanted a knowledgeable real estate agent who had the ability to reach outside the local area of southern Utah to get his home sold.  I set the listing appointment. He had previously listed his residence for six months with a brokerage that sells lots and builds homes. A mistake in my opinion. Their priorities focus on new construction rather than the resale market. Unknown to me or the consumer, he was holding open houses every day in an effort to sell. After touring the property, taking a few photos, acknowledging craftsmanship and upgrades, we sat down. He finally explained that he was a FSBO and implored me to bring a buyer! I engaged him repeatedly, expounding the benefits of listing his home with an experienced ag...
