Unfortunately in a place like New York City with many aggressive, type A personality working professionals, there are always bound to be a few bad apples. We’ve seen plenty of examples of bad human beings who believe it’s their right to call at all hours, be rude and excessively demanding, and act with general disrespect to veteran brokers who are on their side.
If you believe that you’ll be very demanding, needy and generally disrespectful, then having a buyer’s agent is not meant for you. Good buyers’ agents who always have plenty of clients will try to avoid you, and you’ll never be satisfied anyway. Listing agents won’t enjoy dealing with you either, but they’ll likely have to just stomach it in order to earn both sides of the commission.
