Seller's agents are taught to sell in house listings First.

I was reading in Broker Agent Professional Premium Real Estate Success Information

In the section "Ten Tips from Ten Experts", "Industry icon Floyd Wickman"

advising Real Estate Agents wrote in Tip #1:

"...Next get all buyers and lookers into the office to be qualified, and sell them

on the benefits of the office like you never have before.

"Last, sell in-house listings first."

Emphasis is mine but this was Mr. Wickmans final advise to seller's agents.

I don't like being sold, do you?

As an Exclusive Buyer Agent, I nor anyone in my company lists property, so there is never the temptation or (as you read above) the deliberate attemp to stear you toward more profitable lisitings.
