It proves you can be a star in one area but not great in another. It is the same in all professions. A Realtor can excel in one niche of real estate, but not have the passion or personality for other areas.

In the 70’s Cassidy filled up stadiums as a teen idol star. In 2011 Cassidy didn’t have the constitution to defend himself in Donald Trump’s boardroom.

Real Estate Has Many Specialty Areas - One Cannot Specialize in All of Them

Most Realtors excel in their specialty, whether it’s working with sellers, buyers, investors, low priced houses, luxury houses, new construction and more.

When a Seller Needs a Short Sale - a Short Sale Expert is Needed

However, most Realtors do not have the training, the staff, the systems or the passion to process short sales. They know the responsible thing to do is refer their short sales to a short sale expert with a successful track record.

Most sellers don’t realize the importance of hiring a short sale expert to sell their house when they need a short sale. Sellers should research who is the local short sale expert, or ask their trusted Realtor to find one for them.

Dave - It is going to be a very interesting Celebrity Apprentice season with so many well known personalities.  It will be very interesting to see how long Richard Hatch lasts.  Mark Burnett's people are very good at casting.

They're also good at making sure personalities will clash. Reminds me of my corporate days, except that Trump stirs the flames so the eruptions come faster.

The trick is separating the real from the proclaimed "experts" and there is really no way of doing that. 

I know agents with the certification who do NOT understand the difference between a 1st and a 2nd.

Then again I know agents who understand the short sale transactions, processes, risks, etc,, who are smart enough to take only a few with a high likelihood of success. 

Short sales are the biggest challenge in the housing industry that I've seen in all these years I've been in the business.

Lenn - I struggle with that screening process. It's hard for me to turn away people who need help but I've learned that some situations and some lenders who simply cannot be helped.

Like, Lenn, I know agents who have a certification but must have slept through class because they couldn't find their way to close a short sale with two maps and a flashlight.

David Cassidy is probably a wimp. Donald Trump is definitely a meanie. But then I don't watch the show, LOL.
