3 ways to win more listings and keep vendors happy

According to real estate tech company Gavl, managing vendor expectations is the greatest challenge agents face in 2018, besides winning new listings. Last year’s market slowdown is thought to be a major cause, as homeowners base their expectations on the previous 5 years historic price growth.
