many RE Agents do not want to work with investors. I respect my agent’s time. When she sends me the list of properties that meet my criteria, instead of asking her to use her time taking me around to look at them, I cul through the list and pick out those I’m most interested in. Then, I send my “Inspecter” out[in the beginning I had to do the inspections myself so I knew what to expect of the person I trained]to do an exterior inspection and report back to me with photos of the front and back of the house and info on the neighborhood. From there, I guesstimate repair costs, call my agent and have her submit the offers. Since this doesn’t take up much of her time, she’s more willing to work with me. No way I’d ask her to go with me to look at 40, 30, 20, or even 10 properties!
