Measuring Success - How Many People Did You Help This Year?

There are many ways to measure success. Most of them are technical and financial. But looking back on 2010, Realtors should ask how many people are living a better life because you were in their lives this year?

  • How many families improved their homeownership position because you guided them properly?
  • How many families got out of a bad housing and a bad debt situation because you helped them?
  • How much happiness did you bring to others?
  • How much overwhelming stress did you eliminate from people's lives because of your compassion and skills?

Aren't these the real questions? Everything else is a by-product of helping others achieve their goals.

I know I have helped many people this past year.  That is why I am in the real estate business.  That part makes it all worth while.  I sold a home (Short Sale) to a young man this year.  It was his first home and he thanked me over and over.  I had the listing side also and it was a long drawn out process, but when we closed he said i was the best realtor in the entire world.  That meant more to me than my commission.  I will continue to help people because DOG GONE IT......PEOPLE LIKE ME.

I helped some by taking on more stress than I would want to talk about, but I got the job done.

I don't think people realize sometimes the hard work that does go into getting properties financed and closed.  Realtors work very hard for their clients.  It is very satisfying to know that you have helped them achieve their dream of home ownership.  Hat's Off to all the dedicated professionals out there!  Merry Christmas!

This is a great question to reflect upon as the new year approaches!  Not only real estate agents, but all real estate professionals should do a self-assessment to determine how they have helped those who need their services.
