Currently my Top 5 

1. "text only, no calls" Agents that do not communicate professionally.

2.The "nesses":  Unresponsiveness, rudeness, ineptness for this profession

3. Agents that think they have no value unless they cut their commissions.

4. Flaky buyers or "splinter gathering" buyers that drag out the process.

5. Know it all, stubborn sellers.
