I am hurt that my friends who are selling their property did not consider hiring me as their agent. But I can't let them know how I feel without feeling pathetic.

Don't do it! I don't justify them because if they are good friends they should have talked to you before and explained their decision but it is something they already did and by telling them something you might be the one who looks bad.

It's possible that your friends may have felt that you would be biased in favor of them selling the property. It's important to be professional and objective when it comes to real estate transactions, even if you're close with the people involved. If you feel like you would have been able to handle the sale objectively, let your friends know that and see if they're interested in hiring you. You could also offer to help them find a good agent who will represent their best interests.

It do be like that sometimes. It might be for the best, it's not always the best idea to mix friendships and business

I wouldn't take it personal, a lot of people would rather not do business with people they're too close with since it can sometimes create a weird dynamic.

I went through the same thing as you, the difference is that they were not friends but cousins. I didn't really do anything until they themselves told me they regretted not doing it with me.

It's natural to feel hurt and disappointed when your friends don't consider you for a job opportunity, especially if you think you would be a good fit. However, it's important to avoid communicating those feelings in a way that makes you seem unprofessional or needy. In this situation, it might be best to simply express your thanks for being considered and let them know that you would still be happy to help them in any way you can.

You could try to hint at your feelings by saying something like, "I was a little surprised that I wasn't asked to help sell your property." If they don't pick up on what you're trying to say, you could always say, "Is there a reason why you didn't choose me to be your agent?" This will give them the opportunity to explain why they didn't choose you and hopefully it won't be anything personal.

Bottle it up and move on. That's just how the business is, bucko

Lots of people don't want to do business with friends. I would look at it differently; they care about your friendship enough to not jeopardize it.

My sister in law used my services for apartment locating without contract because “we’re family” and took the discount without putting my name. Family is crazy haha.

Before any communication you have to ask what your objective is. If your answer is to make you feel better then don't. What are you wanting them to do about it? The damage is already done. Any further discussion about it will only end in more damage.

When I first started I had a friend that was about to get married promise to use me to sell his and his wife's house and they didn't use me for either one. I was counting on those houses getting me solid footing in the industry.
