That's where it is important to interview the realtor. The first guy who came "highly recommended" wasn't right for my needs. The guy I ended up using was great for my needs.

I've also been "soft interviewing" Travis here; asking some questions and he has been great. I will likely consider using him in the future when/if I need a realtor. However I will meet him face to face first.

OK, in my experience with showings, the selling realtor has always been there as well as my own. The only time I have not seen the selling realtor show up was when we were renting a house; and it was for sale. Our landlord had it for sale for some legal reason and didn't really want to sell. His selling realtor let us know he would only come if we weren't going to be home.

That's where I was going with this. So if your selling realtor is not making a point of being there for showings; then yeah I agree he is not earning his money.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the selling realtor is never there for a showing.

Usually not in Calgary cause everything is on lockbox.
In Vancouver, we can't use lockboxes and have to be there for all showings.

Really? That seems like it would be a huge PITA for scheduling viewings.

First two buys and sells were in the late 90's! The most recent was through a "friend" (who is no longer a friend).

They certainly have lock boxes out in the valley, either that or go to the listing agents office and pick up a key.

Valley uses lock boxes, most of Vancouver doesn't.
