Can I Have Your 2 Cents Worth?
I find that once people learn that I am a Realtor many times I get “Can I ask you a question” My first reaction is always sure why not, maybe I will get some business. The majority of the time it is, what is the market doing, how are prices, we have been thinking of moving, all good questions might even get me excited, possible business, maybe a chance to make money. Sure you can have my 2 cents worth. The reason they are asking is because I am a professional at what I do, I work the market, I take courses, and I take time to stay current with the market, all things that cost more than 2 cents. And what are the closing remarks, yeah we have our house listed; my friend is in Real Estate, I follow Realtor.com I know what is going on, did I just get short changed ?
I realize that this is part of the business and sometimes you win and sometimes you do not, but should we be so free to give away our expertise and time, I am not sure if there is any other profession that just gives away their knowledge like Realtor's, at least it would be nice to get the 2 cents worth.
