We get all kinds of comments from people who know that we devote literally thousands of dollars in training....many hours....waking and those that KEEP us awake...to Short Sales. We love real estate...I always say that if I could stay awake and functioning more hours, I would do more real estate. Sometimes the comments are from other realtors....one said:
" I would never 'do short sales', the time it takes would interfere with my lifestyle."
It sure is up to every practicing realtor to choose what areas they wish to define as "their practice".
Other realtors....who are afraid to say that they are not familiar with the process, don't understand the timeline, the "rules"....the "wills and will nots".....
"Can we close this in 30 days....or do we have to wait for the bank approval ?...OR What day will we close....the bank already told you how many days they need, right ?"
Know what you don't know and don't be afraid to ask us.
Sometimes, the comments are from people we have saved from foreclosure after being listed with a realtor who "bought" their listing and had them convinced the house would actually sell for a non-appraisable price.
"You are my personal Angels....I will always remember your kindness and professionalism."
"I slept for the first time last night, I feel safe now that you are taking care of the listing."
Those are the comments you read and re-read and the tears come and you know you are doing the right thing every day....and makes you try...and sometimes cry even harder.
