Do you "Resume"?

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker Elite

Recently while teaching a class, I mentioned that agents should be giving their clients Resume’s prior to the first meeting.  One agent asked what I thought it should look like, so here’s mine, as an example.

It’s my belief that agents are essentially asking for a job when the encounter a potential client, so why wouldn't you send this to them?  It will allow you to concentrate on THEM during the meeting, trusting that they will have a good idea of who you are before hand.

Resumes should be under two pages and very easy to read.  One element that you may wish to add, that isn’t in mine, is an “Objective” paragraph talking about your goals when handling a client’s needs.

Matt this is an interesting suggestion and may work well for those of us in the business for a while, but what would you recommend for a new agent just getting started?

Good stuff. I have a meeting with a builder and he wanted to see a copy of my resume. I have been in real Estate for over 9 years and never had anyone ask to see my resume. Thanks for the help.
