For Realtors: A Real Estate Pro is Not Much Different From an Athlete

Real Estate Agent with EXiT Three Rivers Realty


The best of athletes are coached so why should Realtors be any different?


Sports are often used as a metaphor for professional competition.  In golf, for example, the average score is about one hundred.  At least two strokes per hole are putts, in regulation.  So the pro's only need two shots to get close.  We need more!


If you're an average golfer, you can flub a shot here, miss the green, shoot from trap to trap, and still shoot a hundred.  You would qualify as average!


The fastest way to playing better golf?  Play with someone who shoots par.  You'll be surprised how few strokes they use.  One tee shot, fly it onto the green, putt for birdie, miss, easy par.  The reward to the professional is so much greater than to the average player.


So it is also for real estate professionals.  By saving strokes, conserving energy, and making your transactions flow smoothly, your rewarded with success like a pro.

It matters who you surround yourself. It certainly makes success easier or failure easier, depending on who you are hanging with.

I have always felt as a manager, that it is my duty to bring every one of my staff up tp their highest level of compentency, and you have to know human nature, as every person had different levels in different areas. It is alot of work, but the end result is making better sales people and great friends. Thanks for the post, and keep up the PMA (positive mental attitude)

Good post, straight to the point.  Did you get the graphic from Exit?  Anyway, good to see you posting, keep up the good work.  Do you think it is a good year for me to buy an Exit Franchise? Yes or No.
