Helen Ga Real Estate "What Would YOU Do?"

By
Real Estate Agent with No. Georgia Mountain Realty

The recent tv program "What Would You Do" inspired this post, along with a group I belong to which recently could not agree to agree, so of course a new group was formed.  Now of course both groups are only half as effective as they had been as a whole.  It brings to mind loyalty, knowing when to leave, knowing when to stay and being able to admit you made a mistake and go back, if that is what is best. We run into this many times in our real estate careers as well as in our personal lives.  Something happens at the office, divisions happen, somewhere along the line a "dissenter" speaks up and tries to rally others to leave this horrible place with him/her.  (Yes misery loves company, in fact it is necessary)

What do you do.  Do you have to take sides, do you have to be labeled one way or another?  Can you be removed from the politics and keep the focus on what you should be doing, what is your focus, interest or reason for being?    We as real estate agents can change companies, franchises, brokers often and sometimes do.  Does it really help, or is the dissention within?  When there is a division in your professional or personal areas, if you do not feel a move will benefit you greatly, stay where you are and fix the problem.  Or at least try and fix the problem.  Don't get on the "other side" just because someone is pushing you to do so.  Usually the problem is an inward one, not outward.  And if it is outward, sometimes the best defense is a good offense.  Change yourself first!

Flynn - I see agents move from brokerage to brokerage ... more than 7 times for one guy. I'm not sure why he hasn't figured out the problem is him, not the broker he chooses to hang his license with.

Thank you for your response.  Yes, it is that way in all of life, we usually look elsewhere for "THE PROBLEM"!  (Need to use a mirror, sometimes, this includes me) :-}

Sometimes the split is hard but will make the group stronger.  Just try to get more stronger members and move on.

Very well written Flynn. Sometimes people want to blame everyone else for the problems.

My wise father used to say, "the problem with running away from a problem is, you take yourself with you."  I think sometimes when there is a rift in a group, you see the true colors of some of the players.  In real estate, I think the issue, more often than not is within ourselves.
