Is Your Real Estate Agent Honest With You About This Market? - 05/26/10 10:47 AM
I often times tell my clients that it is not one single thing we do but all the things we do that result in getting a home sold. Today's market is a hard market and a trending market that is changing constantly. It takes Real Estate Agents that are prepared for those changes. It is a blend between using technology and out-bound marketing effectively along with traditional marketing and communication. If I had to identify the one critical component of real estate, it would be communication. Effective communication is so critical today and remains one of the hardest tasks we have. (4 comments)
