I can hardly be in the presence of negative people.  I have an overwhelming urge to put my hand over their mouth and I have a germ issue.

Ignore them, let the comment stand so others can view their snarkiness.  On rare occasion I have been known to return snark with snark but try not to.

Don't feed the trolls... but I do enjoy feeding them.  I'm used to this from the last decade when people would be just vicious in forums.  I love a good snarky comment (heck I make them from time to time).

 

Driveby's I've been to Los Angeles back in the days of "don't wear red or black clothes" so I'm all too familiar with drivebys.

I ignore most, it's possible someones going through a bad day & venting? I've taken on a couple people over the years, like when Sam Shueh blatantly told us that Commercial Agents were more sophisticated than Residential Realtors a few months ago, I took him on. But, most of the time, I leave it alone and figure: "duly noted; no referrals to that attitude".

So, I like that people are themselves, most are just authentic & some funny, some seem permanently angry, a few are mean. But, that's life and that's definitely Real Estate.

I explain to my client that if a seller isn't cooperating before selling it will most likely be a difficult person to work with and we should avoid getting into that trap.
