Do you want to be friends with your Realtor?

Reblogger Karen Baker
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty

Mimi Foster has written about a great topic we can certainly relate to. We don't necessarily have to become friends with every client we work with but find quite often how quickly our clients become "at ease" after meeting us for the first time. We appreciate and accept all the positive feedback we receive!

Original content by Mimi Foster

handshakeIf you know me, you know that I am a pretty friendly person.  I rarely meet a stranger, and my compassionate nature is such that I want to help, solve problems, guide, and generally make people’s lives better and easier.

For decades, I have done just that for my Clients . . . helped, solved, guided.  More often than not, I have become friends with the people with whom I work.  I am not necessarily talking about dealing with people with whom you have been friends with previously, but recently I have come to realize that becoming friends is not a necessary component to a smooth real estate transaction.

Clients hire me for my expertise.  Clients are looking for a professional, a negotiator, someone who is familiar with the market and capable of making things happen.  Someone who is well-respected and trustworthy, with whom they can get along, and someone that they know has their best interests at the center of a transaction.

You don’t necessarily want to be friends with your Realtor, but you want a Realtor that you could be friends with.  Someone whose personality meshes with yours, and someone with whom you can spend a considerable amount of intense time with few abrasions on either side.

If we become friends, that is a bonus.  But most people already have a circle of friends and are not looking for more in their professional encounters.  I want you to hire me because you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I will do a good job for you because I am an expert.

How do you know that?  One way of having that assurance is through the testimonials given by past Clients with whom I have worked.  Another is through the reputation that I have built over the years.  And my favorite in most arenas is ~ trust your gut.

If your future requires the expertise of a long-time real estate consultant, give me a call.  I have an excellent team of professionals with whom I work and whose expertise will also be at your disposal.  You have my promise that I will work diligently to make the process and the transaction as smooth and as fun as possible.

Frank and Karen: I think it's good to keep a professional relationship during a transaction if these are new clients. Afterwards? Well, that's a different story. I've seen agents cozy up to a client, but once the transaction is done, so is the "friendship".

Frank & Karen  Thanks for re-blogging Mimi's...  It has been a busy day and I'm just getting to the computer.  I probably wouldn't have any friends if it wasn't for my clients.  I work too much but I love my job!
