You...Whooo? The Grinch-CindyLou, YOU-Ville and Who-the-Heck are You-Ville?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Homes By Cross, Inc.

So, as I Turned on the TV tonight the Grinch dominated the airwaves.Charlotte Grinch

I have known my share of grinches and bumfuggling whambos.

Perhaps we are becoming Whoville. We're here to protect the little Cindy-Lou's out there.

Who are we? We are messengers of the reality show we all live. Good news and bad, we are professional messengers.

So here is the good news: in spite of the rumors of our demise, we are still relevant.

We will continue to be relevant as long as we carry a message.... And it better be accurate and quick...else the computer model will replace you.

There is always a human aspect in buying and selling a home. Adept agents know this clause and bring the human experience to a front.

It is a "home" people desire not a house. And those with houses are absent a home.

Cheers to the diligent agents that transform the little Cindy-Lou house buyers into homeowners.

 

That's what we should aspire to do.

Very true, Claude...real estate agents are still relevant. Although I wouldn't normally view Chihuahuas as "cute" the one in your blog post is...maybe it's the green tufts of fur in contrast with the santa outfit! :)

I really don't think our profession is going away soon.  I do believe that we just have to up our game.  We have to be savvy to the newest marketing techniques, latest underwriting guideline changes and negotiating.  If you tread in waters you are unfamiliar with you just may get the short end of the stick!
