Episode 20: Is it still the role of agents to find the right homes for their clients?

Frank LLosa, of Frankly Realty in Virginia, says agents typically play a far lesser role in home-finding these days — a result of improved online search tools for consumers.

"That role of having to wake up in the morning and having a list of three or four customers, and doing manual searches for each of them and sending them off — that’s not the way I work."

He adds, "People don’t want me to send them what I think is a pretty house because I have completely different tastes than most other people. To constantly be sending them stuff just doesn’t seem efficient."
