Wordless Wednesday (almost!): Friendship and Working Relationships

By
Real Estate Agent with Prado Real Estate South UT DRE# 6541633-SA00

Bronco & Hiway Making Friends

A good friendship is based on TRUST and a willingness to SHARE yourself with others. Here are some traits of being a good friend:

  • Honesty
  • Reliability
  • Availability
  • A Good Listener
  • Positivity
  • Being Yourself
  • Caring

A true friendship is reciprocal and has the ability to last over decades and into our older years. These are friends you know are there for celebrations of life and to back you up during times of grief and trust that you will do the same.

A good working relationship is based on TRUST and a willingness to SHARE yourself with others. Here are some qualities of being a good real estate agent:

  • Honesty
  • Reliability
  • Availability
  • A Good Listener
  • Positivity
  • Being Yourself
  • Caring

If you look at the list, you will see these are the same qualities that homebuyers / sellers look for when they search out a REALTOR® to be of service to them. Interesting, isn't it how the lists are the same but could apply to both friendship and working relationships? Some of your buyers / sellers will become clients for life because of your abilities and qualities and because they TRUST you.

(This picture was taken yesterday when Hiway, our cat, decided she wanted to meet Bronco, our black lab/golden retreiver mix and 'make friends!') yikes!

Very meaningful post.  It is so true and good friends are hard to find, so you want to keep the ones you have.  Cute photo also.

Great post.  Clients look to us for honesty and trust.  We are, in their eyes, the experts.  It is time some of us step it up a notch.

Wanda,

Quite a funny picture you took of Hiway reacting after seeing Bronco at the door!   Judging from the photo, Bronco did not seem to make a friendly face to Hiway at that moment but hopefully they do get along just fine.  Thank you for highlighting the similarities between friendship and a good real estate agent.   Great post and photo!

John, Integrity and honesty are two driving forces to great relationships!

Gerry, It's funny because Bronco is a friend to any of our pets, he just has to let them know who is the boss and then he's fine! I'm glad you enjoyed the post!
