It's been a long time since I represented a smoker Jeff Pearl . They say ex-smokers are the biggest pain and that would be true of me... if I see someone throw a butt on the ground I see red in a big way.

"Buyers smoking while showing" - This has never happened to me... They can smoke in their vehicle but not on the property of a listed home.

One time I was screening a buyer who called into the office...

Among her list of things she wanted in a home...she stated that she wanted to only work with an agent that would let her smoke in the car.

I had an office full of agents but told her we only had non-smoking cars...

Actually, that was my office policy...I only hired non smokers.

Smoking is really frowned on in Oregon (unless it is canabis ) and I do not know of many who do this during showings.

I have not had any issues with buyers lighting up at any of my showings. I am happy smokers are more caring of others these days. We have had many brush fires along roads though from tossed cigs
