Why Betty White is like a Good Realtor

By
Real Estate Agent with Beverly-Hanks & Associates

I love football and was thinking about the Super Bowl, and Betty White came into my thoughts.  I started thinking how Betty White is like a Good Realtor.

In case some of you don't care for football or didn't see it, here's the commercial Betty appeared in (along with another crazy actor, older than dirt - Abe Vigoda (or at least older than me).  Watch it  so you know why Betty's got my vote for Good Realtor.

 

 

So now that you've seen Betty White in action, here's my reasons why Betty White is like a Good Realtor:

1. She's not afraid to play with the big dogs. Who cares if some people think she's over the hill. She's willing to show them why Experience comes with Age!

2. She jumps right in and does what she has to do to get the job done. Tough client/listing/buyer Tell 'em Betty -- Who said this would be easy? You want easy???  Go be Paris Hilton...

3. When she gets slammed, she gets right up and holds her ground. Betty's not a Whiner (Go Betty!!)

4. When somebody gives her flack she doesn't cry and get nasty - She stands her ground and tells it like it is. (Because she's a Professional and she's been in the business a while, remember?)

5. She knows how to have fun and not let life get too serious (good advice for these times).  Now we all know Realtors like to have fun...

6. And like any Good Realtor, she knows what to do when you just need a break - Eat Chocolate!

 

So Betty White gets my vote for showing why she's like a Good Realtor - And she loves dogs! Go Betty!!!

Betty White has been a favorite of mine since waaaaay back. She absolutely charmed everyone when she was a regular on Password. She would also be the one to give the right clues to buyers and sellers to get the game won.

So true. I love me some Betty White! What a trooper and still going strong. Cannot wait to see her on SNL in May. Talk about the power of social media. Facebook made that happen!

I guess everybody loves Betty!  I'm with all of you.  She'll be a BIG hit on SNL.  Glad everyone liked the analogy.  It's amazing what comes to you in the middle of the night when you should be sleeping...

I hadn't seen this commercial before, and I like your analogy.  I put one of my posts in public mode before it was ready, and got the most interesting responses as it was a cliffhanger.  I won't hijack your post with the link, but it was a great lesson for me in marketing.

I absolutely loved that commercial when it aired that Sunday. I found it on You Tube and played it over and over. Golden Girl is a trooper.

Evelyn- who doesn't love Betty White?  I even went to the FaceBook page to help get her on SNL as the host.  She'll be on in a few weeks or so.

Great analogy, I really enjoyed reading it. I almost never watch SNL but I might, just to see Betty White and the SNL crew.

Getting you to your next with a zero failure rate!

I love the analogy!  I thought that commercial was priceless!  But I also think that we need to just step up and maybe Betty gives us a good example of that even if it wasn't her intention.  We need to be strong, hold our ground and not be whiners.  Whiners never win for their clients or for themselves!

Jeff - I think she's taken Jack Palance's place as Muscle Mamma (or Grandma?)

This title really caught my eye--because I really love and respect betty White. She has such a good sense of humor and is really a good sport. And she is smart as a whip still. I can't wait until she is on Saturday Night Live in May-Go Betty!

You pegged her well, I think she is all of that.

Great post.
