This woman rings my bell at 5:30 PM – new Realtor in the area. (Supposedly.) No visible soliciting permit. And again, 5:30 PM on a SUNDAY. Let’s start with she’s a stranger soliciting on a Sunday and I think that is rude.
She thought she would just introduce herself. I said “What in case I just wanted to sell my home on a whim and knew no other Realtors?”
I asked her if she looked for a no soliciting sign. (Somewhat blank stare which is surprising because it’s fairly large and metal.)
I did report to local police department because I feel quite strongly about door to door soliciting. And no visible permit.
I actually know a lot of Realtors, none I know are door to door solicitors. They also are more put together with regard to the first impression of it all.
And no, I most definitely was NOT Sister Mary Sunshine.
I will note that this woman was also with another person who was male, and I really didn’t know their age they appear to be someone with Down’s syndrome. Darkish hair as well, and sort of like a scruffy mustache beard thing.
I don’t like door-to-door solicitation, and when it’s more than one person and you’re one person answering the door, I don’t like the way that feels.
This person never identified which firm they were with or realty group within a firm, etc. and even though they said they were there soliciting for a real estate, they didn’t actually offer me a card. Which is probably just as well because I would’ve blasted it all over the Internet by now.
This person actually never said even their first name. So were they there to solicit for a real estate company with themselves as a realtor or they just casing my neighborhood?
So real estate companies, if this realtor belongs to you think twice before sending someone out door to door without a solicitation permit, visible, etc. Think twice about sending someone out around dinner time on a Sunday evening.
And above all else, if someone has a no soliciting sign posted clearly please pay attention to it.
