What do you believe in? Back to Basics Real Estate.

Real Estate Agent with Sierra Vista Realty BR583095000


My success in Real Estate depends on relationships. My client relationships can only prosper and grow if I continually improve myself, and the work I do. I recognize however, that success is not measured by sales; commissions, and numbers alone. I measure success by the way in which I achieve my goals. I believe that a commitment to uncompromising values and integrity should always guide my decisions and actions as I pursue my goals. The following are the core values that form the foundation of my measurement of success:


I believe in providing legendary service. My goal is to provide the kind of unique and genuine personal care and attention that my clients will tell stories about.

I believe that good enough isn’t. I never stop trying to do it better. I constantly strive to "raise the bar.” I go above and beyond for all my clients.

I believe in honesty and trust. I work to build trust with my clients in each and every transaction and interaction. I recognize that honesty and trust form the bond that holds relationships together.

I believe in ongoing training and development of my skills. I see it as a necessary investment in my future in real estate and as a way of enabling myself to achieve highest level of professional service possible.

I believe my continued success depends on teamwork. I know that great achievements are only possible from helping and respecting each other (Agents, Brokers, Title Officers, Escrow Officer, Mortgage Professionals, Home Inspectors, Real Estate Appraisers, Termite Inspectors, Insurance Agents and others involved in making a real estate transaction possible)  in all areas of real estate.

I believe in doing business in a professional and orderly manner. I take great pride in having good systems, standardized procedures and being organized.

I believe in being responsible to others and to myself. I do what I say I’m going to do, when I say I am going to do it. I believe in personal accountability and avoid blaming others when things don’t turn out as planned.

I SELL real estate, not just list it. I sell property at the best possible price, given market conditions. I never overprice properties in order to "buy" listings, nor do I represent buyers that are unrealistic about market conditions.

Brad, this post really says it all. I'll bet you actually answer your phone and return calls too. It's the basics that clients want, but amazing when we hear how many times they're not getting it.

Thanks Karen. I do answer my phone. It is not always easy when the phone rings at 7pm on a Friday night however I chose this career. This economy should inspire us all to reevaluate our core values and ask why we chose a career in real estate. When you know the answer you will be successful.

Setting my own schedule and doing my business my way is why I chose this business. I let my customers know up front how I work and they are either OK with that or I can help them find someone that works another way. I work 9 to 5 m-f Saturdays by appointments with out of state buyers and no Sundays for any reason. I chased my tail (every deal) when I first got into this business but after 3 years my team leader showed me how to make twice as much in half the time (really more than that) and I have never looked back.

A realtor's resume is just as important as any other job applicant in the employment process. If you are hiring an employee, it makes sense to interview them to make sure they are capable of doing the job you need done. I always tell my sellers that line .... "You want to sell it, right, not just list it". Great post.
