Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : Okay, So Who Wants To Be A Realtor?

Okay, So Who Wants To Be A Realtor?

I Do! I Do! Remember the enthusiasm of the third grade? When you knew you knew an answer you couldn't wait to be the one to announce it? The answers may not be coming as easily today as they were then but I'll bet you'll agree that you know more about Real Estate than the next guy!

So, use that knowledge. Don't be afraid to analyse and give a good hypothesis! You are the Professional in this business. People in general want to know what you think.

Should I list my home? Is it worth this much? If the market is down will it still sell? How much should I realize? What will you do for me?  Why should I list with you? What makes you different than the others?

Can you answer these questions with authority? Are you confident in your answers? Are you offering your opinion when a potential client thinks they know all the answers? Are you willing to go head to head?

Use your knowledge.

Use your license.

Use your experience.

Don't give up.

Wanna be a Realtor?

It's up to you.

Later in the rain~Deb

After only 4 years in the business and getting to meet how many BONEHEAD agents there are in this field, I truly feel that the standards should be higher and should be ongoing.

It truly amazes me how some people managed to not only pass the exam, but actually get hired by a broker.

"What makes you different than the others?" is a question we should always strive to have a great answer for.  I will do more for you because.... is what clients want and need to hear.

Looks like you were on a roll with writing posts  :-)  From talking with some local Realtors, I have met some that have the knowledge but that do not know how to utilize this knowledge until they are asked.  Its important to have the facts, but also how to market these facts so that people DO ask you.

I am kinda with Ralph on this one. I am pretty sure I can out perform most agents.  I have business sense, Crazy marketing know how and customer service skills that are second to none!  Thanks for the reminder! I almost want to shout it from the roof top!
