I (24F) just received my Real Estate license. My BF (24M) is upset about who my first client (25M) is and refuses to "allow" me to be his agent.

Tue, 27 Oct 2015 19:18:07 +0000

I will try to make this short as possible so please bear with me! I am also on mobile so I expect this to be poorly written.

I have been with my BF for 3 years and everything has been fantastic until now. I have a friend, lets call him Adam (25), who I have known since before I even knew my BF (who we will call Andrew) Adam and I have a VERY platonic relationship. Never has Adam ever tried hitting on me, ever. Even when we use to party together a lot back in high school all the way until I turned 21 since I had fallen pregnant (With Andrew) and I haven't really seen him much since then since I am either always home or working and don't have much time to go out and party like I use to, but we have kept in touch almost every week since then.

Andrew NEVER had a problem with Adam before and even partied with us. Andrew just realized that Adam and I snapchat each other and have become "Best friends" on there and has a yellow heart next to his username. Andrew goes off and says I need to cut contact with him since "Adam is a dog" and "Only goes after girls who have boyfriends" and "Is out to sabotage my[our] relationship" The thing is, he has never tried anything with me and everything we ever really talk about is my son, work, and future goals. I like to surround myself with people who have dreams/goals and Adam happens to be one of those people. We also don't snap pictures of ourselves. Mostly things around us, but mainly we just chat instead of sending pictures. I even asked Andrew what his real deal with Adam is and he said "When we were in middle school, Adam thought I was someone else and accused me of doing something I didn't do. He later found out I was the wrong person, asked me to forgive him but I didn't like how he approached the whole situation." I'm sorry Reddit, but to me that was a stupid/immature excuse and I couldn't take it seriously. Andrew use to hang out with us and always had a great time and they got along tremendously when we would, I am NOT cutting contact with a good friend over some middle school drama.

Adam and I have recently been talking about how I was in school to get my Real estate license and how Adam was thinking about buying a house within the next few months. Well, I have completed Real estate classes and got my license! Adam happens to be my very FIRST client and I am totally excited!!!!! I went home and told Andrew and he was FURIOUS! He starts going off about how It's either Adam or him, and he refuses to let me work with him. All I hear deep down in his rants is "I am jealous, I want to control you"

Andrew brings up how we snap each other a lot, but then I brought up how I have other guys on there too, talking about nearly the same exact thing, yet he only freaks out about Adam. I understand to drop people your partner does not like, but I feel like it is totally UN-fair what he is doing. Adam has been a really great friend of mine and has never tried anything inappropriate with me and has respected Andrew tremendously to his face and has never said anything bad about mine and Andrew's relationship.

I don't want to have to drop every single client of mine just because they are "attractive" or single. I will seriously probably lose so much clientele that way, and word will probably get around that I "deny clients" and may seem snobby or stuck up. I need to make a name for myself and I kinda feel like Andrew is sabotaging that for me with his jealousy.

What the hell do I do Reddit?? Am I supposed to cut contact with Adam? Am I wrong for refusing to cut contact with someone my partner strongly dislikes (out of nowhere!)??????

tl;dr: BF jealous of longtime friend. Longtime friend wants me to help him find new house since I am a Realtor, BF refuses to let me work with him since we snapchat, now I am refusing to cut contact with friend. Bf is mad.

My listing agent will not market my house on Zillow, the largest real estate website!

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 15:37:43 +0000

I just put my house up for sale, and it's shown on realtor.com and a few other websites. I checked Zillow and it wasn't updated to show my newly listed house. When I asked my agent why my house isn't shown on Zillow, her response was "It will not automatically load to Zillow. Our company policy does not allow that since there is so much erroneous data on that site and we have no control over what they do with your data once it has been uploaded to their site."

A quick Google search brings up lots of articles about agents getting away from using Trulia and Zillow. As someone who is paying an agent a lofty commission to sell my house, it angers me tremendously that they are refusing to use such a popular tool to market my home. What's up with agents doing this, and how can I get around it? I considered creating my own listing on Zillow, but that's the kind of thing I'm paying her to do!

EDIT: Cool, looks like I struck a nerve with you agents out there. Here's the thing: Nobody gives a shit that agents hate Zillow and other sites. Bottom line is that buyers looking for homes use Zillow more than any other website to find homes. I agree that the Zestimate is a joke (and everyone knows that), but Zillow gets twice as many views as realtor.com. When I'm selling something I want views and Zillow delivers.

Why not do it myself? Well, I did it myself on the last house I sold with tremendous success. Flat fee MLS. It's gotten to the point that anyone can sell a house online. This time it's a relo and my commission is covered and I've already moved away so I'm stuck with an agent.

EDIT 2: We're talking to other agents right now and will likely cut ties with this one and move on.

EDIT 3: Well, our agent just gave in and put us on Zillow. It's only been a couple hours but check out my view stats. Yesterday's uptick was people going to Zillow to learn more about the property and there was nothing but old info and nothing about the house being for sale. Now they see the whole listing. I just cannot understand how this can be a bad thing.
