There are the hobbyist, bucking bronco, family man, armchair expert and, yes, hemorrhoid.
So says Doug Rogers, a real estate agent in Pineville, La., who characterizes each type of client as “toxic” in different ways.
Although I think he goes somewhat overboard to describe such clients, I also found his blog post to be mildly amusing, somewhat over-reaching and not a little discomfiting.
In his view, the hobbyist is one who just loves touring homes while never buying one. The bronco never heeds his advice, while the family man soaks up an agent’s counsel and then gives his business to kinsfolk. As for the armchair expert, there’s nothing about real estate he doesn’t claim to know.
Regarding the writer’s fifth type, I’ll leave it to you to surmise or check out in Rogers’ post.
