For a few years we have designated agents by the term ASR in my Falmouth real estate office. This is a tongue in cheek description of those who Actually Sell Realestate. There are so many that just answer the phone, or get one listing a year, or one buyer a year.
When we talk to an agent we don't know, we ask them how long they have been doing real estate. Those we have already done deals with are automatic ASRs. Others we work with, understanding we may have some "extra" duties.
Some non-ASRs get huffy when I ask about their experience, but it is in the sellers or buyers interest to know what their level of business experience is. Maybe I'm alone in this perspective, but I see a lot of posts about inexperienced agents.
