"Leave It To The Professional"...

By
Real Estate Agent with Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty BR534744000 & BR540649000

"Leave It To The Professional"...

 

That's what a Seller told me that they had been told by another agent when they questioned the discrepancy between what the agent had said they would do and what the agent had actually done, or rather had not done...

 

Anyone else see a problem with that posture?

 

Years before we exited corporate america in favor of residential real estate, we practiced and preached:

 

 

Say what you are going to do

 

Do what you said you would do

 

When you said you would do it

 

 

 

It's just that simple...

 

So the Seller decided it was time to "Leave It To The Professional" and fired the other agent.

In PA our contract clearly states everything needs to be in writing about what people say they are going to do. Removes the chance for he said she said later.

Some "professionals" are not very professional!

Do what you said you would do, when you said you would do it. Period.

Doing more and/or earlier is even better!

I always worry about selective hearing. Did they hear what I wanted them to hear the way I wanted them to hear it? 

On a recent listing appointment I had a guy say that I said a specific $ figure for commisssion when he first talked to me. I have never listed a property based on a specific $ figure for commission...until last week.

Actually it may not be a bad idea.  The number he said I quoted was a very fair number...very fair...for me. 

I did tell him that this was a first time for me listing at a specific $ amount...and it would not be negotiable if the property sells for less than full price. And that was put in writing into the listing agreement.

He is happy ...so I am Happy!!

It really is that simple. Not sure why so many people make things so difficult.

After I let my license go away I had acquaintances who were trying desperately to sell their property. They even hired me to build a whole website filled with photos and narratives about it.

But as for finding the agent to do the job... Sheesh!

They had one "top producing" couple who recommended the price - then months later when asked why there were no showings, heard "If you'd lower your damn price maybe someone would look at it. " These were the same agents who used a photo of the mini-fridge in the bar with their description of the gourmet kitchen. They refused to change it - too much work.

After them, they worked hard at choosing the next agent - interviewing several. I was present at the meeting where the agent they chose outlined all the marketing she would do - and she did put it writing. Then she proceeded to do none of it. They had to call her several times just to get a sign up.

Excuses ranged from "I had to go on vacation," to "My dog got sick," to "I had to stay home and take care of the grand-kids."

It has been demonstrated that people select an agent based on Trust.

It is not our line of talk but what we do.

You are so correct that it is crucial to do what we say we will do.

Thanks for sharing.
