Why would someone hire you?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Premiere Home Realty - Tony Barker 832-867-0835
Why would someone hire you? That is the BIG question.  What is your response?  Is it a winged answer that varies each time?   Is it based on the questioner and their intent?  Is it purposeful to instill confidence in the questioner?

If you are not prepared to answer that, you may need to find another line of work.  All new agents need to be prepared to not only answer that, but also to explain the commissions they charge.

I agree with Randy - every agent knows their own credentials and should be prepared and well rehearsed for this question. Even a new agent can get by on the premise that they have a lot of time to be dedicated and will work hard to prove themselves. An experienced agent can go off the cuff based on knowledge, results, reputation.

I believe new and experienced agents can learn additional skills, beliefs, structure and flow of dialog for each process: buyers and sellers.  Knowing the seven steps of pricing versus a CMA.  Knowing that you do not have to chase clients, but attract them. 

These ideas can be learned by brand new agents and are successfully used to beat the most experienced agents.  Winging it will take you so far.  Proven, duplicatable processess and systems guarantee results. 

If you can leverage from people by duplicating yourself you can do more for each client.  Learning never stops.  Reputation is for the individual not the company.  Training, experience (action) and accountability builds client confidence. 

Great comments from all above!!!
