Old-time Realtors — my definition is anyone in the business before there were faxes — may not know how to twitter or blog, but there is one skill that they excel at relative to newer Realtors: presenting offers.
Once upon a time, Buyer’s agents would actually meet the Seller and their agent to personally present the offer (imagine!).
Then, if the Buyer was available nearby, all the parties could convene and hash out any differences.
Now, of course, Facebook has supplanted face-to-face. Offers are electronically submitted with the click of a button or keystroke.
Often times, deals with less give-and-take, that come together slower and break apart more easily.
