Experience Sells | Don't Judge a Realtor by their Body or Face

Don't Judge a Realtor by their Body or Face | Experience Sells

Sellers and Buyers Please DO NOT Judge a Realtor or Broker by their looks, a woman's figure or what car they drive. For the most part we drive comfortable, luxury cars because we are in them all day.... We need comfort. What really irritates me is the insults other agents make to or about other Realtors/Brokers. Go get your job on your own! Do NOT put another professional down to get the job! What are we in High School? I get a bit annoyed when a colleague made a cruel remark and bad statement about another Realtor /Broker. They make insults and are not nice about it! I am appalled that people think it's OK and commend a man for displaying such judge-mental rudeness. I am just saying.... Why would ONE try to gain business by putting another down? Perhaps, a story was told to make client believe such nonsense... Nonetheless, we all found out.

DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER.

I know an awesome Realtor(R) in Southern CA and both our boys played football and ran track at Mater Dei a few years back. She was selling residential homes as a Realtor in the OC. Yes, she could walk into a restaurant and turn heads and got a few listings in the millions that month I first met her. I saw her handing her card over to a gentleman at a pub one day after a track meet and in two minutes she had a potential client.

HEY! She had a body and a gorgeous face and experience of over 12 years. Maybe the body helped her... but I know for a fact how EXPERIENCE does SELL! After long hours of discussing the market, clients and listings....she really KNEW HER STUFF! REAL ESTATE STUFF!!! SO, NEVER JUDGE SOMEONE BY THEIR LOOKS OR THEIR CAR... ASK ABOUT EXPERIENCE.

I just don't think men or women should hate on killer bodies and brains! Just go out and get the next listing or buyer with your own people skills. After all-- 80% of costumers decide on individuals and not company name. That should say something.............. But After al,l EXPERIENCE SELLS... And a Body or face + experience Sells too! Some people think (like this yahoo!) that you don't have the skills because you are attractive.  WRONG! My friend Kay had it all!

MAKE IT A GREAT DAY! and think before you speak about another colleague! Makes you look ignorant.  DO YOUR JOB and your experience should sell itself. No need to bad mouth another Realtor or Broker!

MARKET YOU AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS.

Kat Palmiotti it should always be ;) That is right!

Bruce Walter don't sell yourself short and a beautiful family you have. It does amaze me that people act so juvenile. May we all learn HOW NOT TO ACT...

Lauren what a great post there are some seasoned agents that could be models and then there are others who could have great radio careers either way it does not matter, knowledge, responsiveness, negotiations and people skills are more important, Endre

Lauren, it is unfortunate that this seems to be so common in the Real Estate industry.  I see it in my town and in the AR community.

Endre Barath, Jr. you gave me a little chuckle reading the radio career. When an agent does not have answers and they have to call an experienced Broker or Realtor then there is a problem with their decision.

Bob Crane it really is unfortunate and quite frankly uncalled for.

There is a difference if one Broker calls another Broker/Realtor for their opinion, that is fine, but when the client calls for help! There is in deed a problem.

Re: your statement about agents bad mouthing other agents, I don't think people realize how poorly that reflects on the person being critical.  It's negative, and just shows jealousy.

Why are you being so negative about other agents who are negative about other agents?

Lauren, thanks for highlighting an important topic. I see agents who appear to be more concerned that they are dressed in the latest fashion and give little attention to gaining education for their business.

We do judge people on looks. I see younger people being preferred over the more senior aged.

Lauren and Jim Cheney 

Total agreement.  Jim also hit the nail on the head.  I could be wrong, but I believe any reasonable person would be really Turned-Off by someone putting another down.

It's all about getting the job done Professionally. Period!  Results stand out.

Congrats on the featured post.  Very true too.  People who are snarky about other agents are usually not worth associating with.

Experience, service, attitude--all important. One time I had a new buyer client tell me 'I thought you would be driving a Mercedes'.  I did not know what to say!  Even if I could afford one, that is not the type of car I want. First impressions are important--make your impact by your attitude, clothes, demeanor and personality.

That's my point! #72. I think you are missing it.
This guy made outrageous comments and I'll tell you so that so you know.
"She can't sell real estate, you just want to do business with her because she has a nice rack!"
That was told to my friend!
Her experience gets her clients! But this jack#%¥ couldn't see past his cruelty and obscure mentality!
Therefore, I say, "don't judge by looks or car, but find out the experience and knowledge one has!"
They may have it all!!!

Wayne L. Brown I agree. I would think that would be ones nature to think I cannot do business with someone and respect them for talking so disrespectful of someone else like that. Results really do stand out.

That is unfortunate that someone would choose a younger person just because they are just that, younger.

John Wiley we are not only knowledgeable after so any years experience. In my case 27 years. We know the business so well that we have experienced just about everything you could with the years we have too. If , I were not in the business I would want "EXPERIENCE" please. It is primarily the largest ticketed item one purchases. We MUST have a professional.

Wayne L. Brown you are absolutely correct! Jim Cheney nailed it!  In my case and not my friends, this guy did not know me and the negative remarks about me, had no validity.

Thank you both gentleman and the reflection on the person making poor judgments only shows lack of good character too.
