How do YOU like to locate property? If you are going to drive around looking at houses with a Realtor, do you want to spend time with someone who really knows her stuff but lightens things up with a little humor?
Assuredly, buying and selling homes is a major investment. But, it doesn't hurt to pepper the banter with a little lightheartedness, does it? One of my favorite past times is watching the agents on the tv shows who drag their clients from room to room pointing out the obvious. For example, "This is the bathroom, this is the kitchen", etc Yawn yawn..... In some ways, the physical aspect of selling real estate is easy. We drive from home to home in what is, hopefully, a clean vehicle.
Also, it helps to have the talent of being able to drive and talk at the same time. But, the real gift of this job is the ability to simply put myself in my client's shoes and look at things from their perspective. One of the most underused, but highly important phrases a Realtor can ask is simply, "What do you need?" It's amazing how that simple question gets solutions to problems.
