Is your agent looking out for YOUR best interest or Their Own?

By
Real Estate Agent with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty 01711873

Defining times in the real estate market have flushed out many of the deal-by-deal agents, and those that have been true client service providers are being called on now more than ever. This is the time of where the Realtors who are dedicated to serving their client will shine. Many agents are 'white-knuckling' through the sales slow down, and have rolled up thier sleeves to take on more challenging paths such as assisting in short sales, and end-to-end consultation covering all aspects of real estate. We are back to the fundamentals and clients need us now more than every. Make to investment to be your clients best educator of how to work through these challenging times, and provide the advise that will best serve them into the next decade. Serving your clients best interests now, will sew the seeds for a mutually beneficial and successful relationship into the next decade. Your clients will appreciate it, and albeit not as financially rewarding than perhaps past years, intellectually, morally, and spiritually rewarding.

Jay, you make some excellent points.  If I may make a suggestion, since this is also posted on your outside blog, I suggest you break it up into several smaller paragraphs, and also do spell-check, and proof-read this post.  Just a suggestion.  Take care...

Surely the opportunities to work are still there, if not from conventional real estate sales, then from short sales, to BPOs or inspection work or any other number of opportunities. Some agents are teaming up, others are getting into real estate investing or property management for the first time.  This is a great time to stretch a little bit. Those who want to work in real estate will continue to find ways to do so. And they will do better if they focus on superior customer service!  To accomplish this, its a great time to work on the basic skills, re-work your prospecting database, polish up your listing and buyer presentations, and look for new ways to expand your business.  Educate yourself, and educate your clients, and above all, put your absolute best forward for EVERY client, every day.
