When Pushy Comes To Shovy :(

Nobody wants to deal with a pushy real estate agent.  At the same time, you don't want an agent who's never in touch and fails to service your needs in a timely manner.

Everyone's different -- some people prefer a passive approach while others require frequent updates.  As time goes on, circumstances will change so it's important to constantly reassess how often you'd like to receive updates and whether you prefer to communicate by phone, text or email.

In the early stages, many home buyers shy away from asking too many questions as they feel like they're wasting the agent's time.  The truth is, your agent wants to hear from you on a regular basis so they can grow with you as your house hunting journey matures.  The last thing an agent wants is to lose you as a client because you felt your needs weren't being met.

Effective communication is essential when it comes to forming and maintaining a solid working relationship.  As long as you and your agent constantly communicate with each other while you're on the road to homeownership, you'll feel neither pressured nor abandoned.
