Responding to the ever so common objection of "I have an Agent" is uncertain territory for many. The reality is:
1. Every person out there KNOWS at least 5 - 6 realtors on average (very easy to say they have an agent)
2. Consumers are starting to learn that it's the fastest way to get a realtor to "leave you alone"
Always acknowledge their response, but return it with a question... how a lead responds can often signal whether they're being honest about their claim. Here's a couple examples:
1. How long have you and your agent been looking for?
2. What realtor are you working with?
