Many of my clients are professionals in many fields and do their jobs quite well, but they have no idea what the protocol is for dealing with their real estate agent. They do not know why realtors are getting angry with them when all they are trying to do is get information on a home that is for sale.
Dealing with real estate agents is not hard to do as long as you understand the protocol to use when purchasing a home. Here is a list of tips that will help you to work with a realtor.
1. You need to understand that almost all the real estate agents in Joshua tree work on a commission basis. There can be very few that work on salary, but not that I know. A real estate agent can get a contract of sale of a house, but if the transaction does not close the agent is not paid.

Many people treat real estate agents as officials and that they are working for free. Real estate agents do not work for free, so if you intend not to use a real estate agent in a transaction do not ask them to work for you.
2. Keep all appointments and be fast. Respect your agent and use courtesy. Do not expect a stopper while they are doing just to fail to show you a house. They have other clients and family too. If you make an appointment, and something else, just do not forget.
