It turns out no one interviews realtors to be their buying agent. The three realtors I interviewed thought it was a good idea, but also that it was weird. They did varyingly good jobs at hiding how weird they thought it was. Super awkward for all.
Pro tip though, if you are being interviewed by one half of a partnership, and you’ve been given that one person’s contact information, maybe put that person‘s name in your phone, and not the other partner. Nothing says “I don’t want to work with you” to me quicker than Pea’s name on your phone above our text conversation, when you are aware Pea is in a different country.
Side note/whine: Mortgages and house buying are hard! Who says I have to be an adult? Who?! Let me at ’em.
We have not even started really looking, I’ve just been securing financing, a realtor, and going to open houses. Which I guess is the same as starting to really look, but I am already over this process, my goodness.
