*SOI = Sphere of Influence = People Who Know You
I'll bet you're thinking this is going to be a looooong blog, full of sappiness, self-serving propaganda and holier-than-thou pronouncements.
Nope. Not in the mood to be sappy, self-serving or even holier than y'all today.
So, I'll cut to the chase.
SOI might be right for you if:
You are willing to put the needs of your clients first. This means that you have the TIME and DESIRE to go above and beyond what's expected, not just provide "good customer service."
Your real estate career is your priority career (see above).
You know your stuff. You aren't just a friendly and responsive party-animal, you are an excellent real estate agent.
You know people and are willing to make an effort to meet more (and yes, we introverts can excel at this too. In fact, we're a step ahead of the social butterflies in that we're good at keeping track of the people we know and meet!)
I'm sure I'll think of more and please feel free to add to this list.
So, is SOI right for YOU?
