Are you a double agent? Not as in the infamous dual agent, rather the agent that does double the work in almost every transaction? If not, I am certain you can name several double agents in your area. With lightning speed they answer their phone, the office phone and even your phone when needed. Files are kept with precision, every addendum, every change; every doodling document is in immaculate order.
Brokers love them, attorney’s appreciate them and other agents often depend on them and in most circumstances entirely too much. When in a transaction with a well-known double agent, the cooperating agent kicks up their feet and enjoys the smooth ride all the while confident the work will be done. It is a title of distinction and distress.
Double agents are committed to a successful end and will rush to pick of the slack anytime needed. Whether dealing with a fresh out of school Realtor, a been around forever Realtor or even a missing in action Realtor, the double agent juggles responsibilities, deadlines and documents in order to get the deal done.
As frustrating as it can be, the double agent isn’t capable of standing by or waiting for the work to be done. It isn’t about the credit; it is about doing a job and doing it well. Double agent certainly doesn’t mean double pay; it can mean double doses of Advil.
It takes two to get through, some choose to participate some choose to collect commission. The double agent will have double the referrals, double the respect and double the wrinkles, but anything worth doing is worth doing right.
