Thinking back a few years ago I remember the attitude of..."It's my listing...don't touch it!" I had progressed into the new millennium like a comet hitting earth for an old fart like me. It all seems to me to be a normal understandable thing to do! Zillow, Realtor.com and so many others scrape our listings anyway. Why not allow a competitor to show your listing on their web sites?
Our standard rules are to show the listing company and simply place your name and contact information for the showings and "BUYER'S REPRESENTATIVE". We should all have the simple "DO IT RIGHT AND HAVE AT IT!" attitude. It is our Fiduciary responsibility to do everything we can to represent the seller when we take a listing. Placing that very listing on other sites is also a responsibility to give the listing as much exposure as possible!
Get over the "it's mine" phobia.
How nice would it be to be able to say to your potential client, "don't worry, with us you get everyone! I will take good care of you and make sure everyone has the opportunity to sell your property!"
If you were selling your home isn't that what you would want?
