All The World's a Stage - So Who Are Your Players?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with U.S. Cybertek, Inc.

William Shakespeare penned the well known words "All the world's a stage". Most people have heard this line at one time or another in various contexts. 
What they do not realize is that there is much more to the quote:

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.


How does this relate to real estate? Think about it for a second in terms of a Realtor's life and work.

Is your job as a Realtor ever really finished? No. I once heard a Realtor remark that there are no such things as "past clients",
there are only current clients and prospective clients because you are never really done with a client once you start.

As a Realtor you play many roles for your clients, selling their house, finding them a new one, aiding them in finding the best fit for their
lifestyle and family, helping them navigate the tricky business of negotiating for the house of their dreams, and so many more things.
Also as a Realtor you are many things to your clients and carry the burden of many responsibilities, all with a smile on your face.
Sometimes Realtors have to be the best of actors, smiling and speaking kind words when you really hit the end of your patience hours ago.
But it is all for the client, for the best interest of their well being and happiness, so you smile on.

Why do you do it? Because you care. Money is all well and good, but with the stress and strife the business of real estate is riddled with you really
have to love it to stay in it. I have been told that there are few things more satisfying than closing a deal and finding that perfect house for your clients.
The sense of satisfaction in seeing a job well done and your clients happy is your goal. But with the triumphs must come the tragedies, and the sinking
feeling of know a deal will not go through or the frustration of an unreasonable client only serves to make your successes all that much sweeter.

So go on, take to your stage and grab hold of your role as a Realtor with both hands and give it your best!
The world is your stage and your audience is waiting.

Phly,

We need to get you more visibility!  Your writing is too good to be languishing out of sight.

Might we suggest joining a few more groups?  Look for the larger ones that would be a fit.

You can post your blogs to up to 5 groups.  We noticed our comments picking up

after joining a few more.

Good luck!

By the way, how do your pronounce your first name?  My brain want to say "Fly", but not  certain!

Yo!  Great stuff again!  (for some reason a few words on the right side marge were out of the frame not sure if it is user error though).  I agree with Liz, get your butt in more groups!  Whaaaa whaaaa.  Good morning btw!  Hope your weekend is full of great pictures that you are going to share on AR!  :)

Chris,

It's not user error, same on ours.  I think it may have to do with picture orientation, but not sure!

We definitely need her to get more exposure, but there's not a ton of clout here.  Not sure going to reblogging would help!

Phly,

Great post as usual. Liz and Bill; she is pronounced "Fly". Cool name yes?

Phly,

A good Realtor® is way more than a salesperson to the everage transaction. I have made many friends doing "business".

Liz &Bill - Thank you! You guys are fantastic and I would be very interested in joining any groups you would be interested in suggesting. ;) Terry is correct about the pronunciation. . . though for some reason people see my name and start trying to call me "Phil". . . . strange but true!;)

Chris - Good morning to you too! ;) I noticed the thing going on with the slider, I think that AR was having some site issues when I put this up because the type style (while cool looking) was not actually intentional. I was working on some astrological shots this weekend, it was mega fun! ;)

Terry - Thanks! There are a couple of Realtors from my home town that are amazing people. One in particular is one of the sweetest women I have ever met, she is super no nonsense type but if you ever need anything she's right there. This is a great business for making and keeping friends. ;)

Janice - Thanks you!*grin* Have I mentioned that I love AR? My writing process goes like this. . . I sit down and then unleash my personality via keyboard. While I dearly love a great informational post (or research paper for that matter), I just can't write like that. I think it has something to do with a absolute belief that life is much too short to be completely serious all the time. . . or even most of it. (Says the woman eating pop tarts for breakfast in her pj's.) Honestly, I write the best posts while in my pj's. There is something just so comfy and relaxed about yoga pants that makes the process easier. ;)

Phly, Red Raspberry pop tarts perhaps? 

As far as groups, just hit the Groups icon.  Look for the ones that have the most number of subscribers that align with your interests, then join them.  You can post to up to five, so match the persona of the post to the right groups, then cross your fingers and hope that since you built it, they will come!

Good luck

Actually frozen S'mores pop tarts. . . they are soooo good! Not to mention mildly addictive. ;) Thanks for the how to info on the groups, I have been mucking about with my new Rainmaker account (I finally joined, YEA!!!) and trying to make everything work. I'll keep writing and see what I get! ;)

I've tried the S'mores recently, but not frozen! Most mornings at my desk, two out of the wrapper Red Raspberrys.  I suppose I could go look for the office toaster

Good luck with the audience building.  We're still working on that part, and keeping up with everyone you want to is a bear!
