My Strategy for Obtaining Valuable Feedback from Showings



Pre-Listing Feedback


Obtaining accurate feedback from other agents is crucial in the listing process.  To position your property correctly in the current market, we might recommend using pre-marketing techniques in order to obtain valuable feedback from other agents prior to formulating a concrete marketing strategy.  This may involve broker opens and utilizing off-MLS marketing resources such as the @urbanerealty internal application and the Top Agent Network (TAN) which is only available to the top 10% of agents citywide.



Post Showing Feedback


Once hitting the market, showing agents provide feedback that can help in addressing any deficiencies potential buyers are noticing and re-position the property if necessary.  Agents obtain feedback in a variety of ways, however, the most common is a short drop down form seen below.

Feedback Zak Herman


I do not prefer this method for the following reasons:

  • Brief, one word pre-determined answers rarely deliver useful information
  • Drop down fields can be left blank
  • Agents are not required to leave property specific feedback in the comments section
  • Agents can choose not to send feedback at all



My Strategy


I will personally call and track down, if necessary, each agent that shows your home so I can have a conversation with them regarding your listing.  I find that even a brief conversation can provide more useful and tailored feedback than the method above.  This feedback will then be delivered to you for consideration.
