A bunch of neighbors hang around and you find out 90% neighbors are realtors.

This is California where there are always more realtors than buyers and more buyers chasing a few sellers.

WORST pet peeve?

Is that like your 'worst enemy' is really your best friend?

What I find a consistent irritation is when individuals are physically tired, mentally tired, exhausted, have one remaining nerve, they start calling others STUPID, LAZY, incompetent not realizing the real source of their condition. And the always popular, elitist cry to raise the bar when they need to be challenging their broker.

Are these the negative (worst pet peeve) people we should avoid?

Cindy, and those FSBO sellers will be able to go on Zillow, search their address, pull up pics you paid for, the description you wrote and simply change the status and BINGO, their FSBO is published. Then they call YOU and ask, "Do these jeans make me look fat?" (also known as, 'what are the best places to advertise my FSBO for sale?) 

In the purist sense of WORST pet peeve are those who look for an opportunity to show others the have been recognized. These 'see' people and do not see through them. Now that is a behavior I can EMBRACE.
