How many times have you heard co-workers complaining about the markets, or the lender, the title company etc??? In today's Real Estate environment there is no time or place for excuse makers, we need reason finders. I run into this at least 5 times per week when I am out in the field. It really amazes me how unhappy some people are with what they do. I would think that if you do not like what you do you will not succeed, right? If you truly love what you do then you will be successful, I have always gone by this...the more people I help be successful then it will come back to me tenfold. So before you let that excuse come into your head make sure you think of how that decision will impact your paycheck. Check out my latest ongoing purchase..
So last week a friend of mine at another mortgage company calls me and asks I can help with a deal he has. I said sure, whats the situation? Well come to find out it is a purchase that should be pretty easy. Here comes the problem......I get a call from the Agent who tells me this loan has to close on 4/29! I did not even have a fully executed contract yet, I in return said probably not going to happen since I just got the file on the 4/15. I took a verbal beating about how she has another mortgage person who can do it...blah blah blah...I basically said then PLEASE give it to him. I do not understand why some agents think they can abuse the mortgage people? It makes really wonder how people like that make it in this business, The agents I work with are great, they know I will get the job done right. They do not have to call me and go crazy with all that nonsense. It makes really think that this agent is not doing the right thing for their client. Well everything is moving along and we will see what happens here, I will keep you informed.
Here is the moral of this story, the new agent I have never worked with before is already calling non-stop and saying all the things that should not be said. I think we all need to have realistic expectations of our business partners, the only person you are hurting through this RUSH process is your client! They will have a miserable experience and be very upset, even if the loan closes in that 2 week period , I will still look like the bad guy. Choose your partners wisely..
