OK NOW THIS IS WEIRD -

OK NOW THIS IS WEIRD...... So I am on vacation and actually on a ski slope yesterday when an email from my showing service shows me scheduled to show two homes today. One of them was my listing and the other is someone elses. I immediately call the service to say that I had NOT scheduled these showings and how could they have been put in my name without a showing code that is required when making the appointments. To make matters worse, the listing that is mine is my neighbors home and they know I am out of town. I get on the phone with the service and they tell me a new person made the mistake. Supposedly an out of town agent called to make the appointment and since they are not with our local board, the showing service person just scheduled it under my name????? This morning my phone is ringing off the hook and mind you it is two hours earlier for me where I am. The homeowner is confused and calling to see if the showing is legitimate, the showing service is calling and I am CONFUSED to say the least. I get a supervisor on the phone, get the supposed agents name and number. Try to look her up on the Texas Real Estate Commision website and guess what???? No one by that name is a licensed agent in Texas! The phone number I get doesn't work either. Hmmm....why would a person try and schedule a showing without proper credentials? They won't be able to show without a Supra key and code? Just makes me a little cautious. I have told my neighbor and seller to NOT allow anyone to show their home unless they have an appointment and use a Supra key. I will keep you all posted on what happens here but it is more than a bit concerning. Hopefully I can enjoy the rest of my vacation!!!
