I just read a really great post on the proof of a Real Estate God. SO what about the converse. Is there one and how many have sold their soul to him. Is he a firm or a broker, is it Greenspan or Bernanke. Is it this recruiting firm that arrived from nowhere and is going back. Is it the evil client that lies and gets you all spun up around nothing.
if there is a Real Estate Satan, I think he is not as we would depict him. No horns or pointed tail. No fiery pitchfork or trips to Hell. Nope I think he is more common and closer than you think. I think there is some of him near every reader right now as you read this. I bet you could reach out and touch him in less than twenty seconds.
Yes my fellow professionals, he is close, but most of us keep him at bay. It is the few, the week, the short careers that accept him for all he is worth.
For his picture resides on a sliver of paper in your wallet, yet that is not him. That is just a reminder of his power. His name is Greed and he is the Devil of this and many other businesses.
Remember why you got into this business, think of that single mom you placed after six weeks of looking and three lenders. Think of that widower who calls you on the holidays to say thanks for the card. Think of that family that went back to Europe after you sold their house, and if that doesn't work, think about your states Real Estate Commission.

Wow, not even one comment. I am shocked
