The other day I was listening to someone talk about the importance of knowing “why” we do what we do. We all come from different places in our professional lives but the most common “why” I hear among my Realtor colleagues is the desire to help people. To help make someone’s life better by educating and guiding them through the real estate buying and selling process. I know some consumers may have had that one bad experience with a Realtor where that consumers needs were not put first and foremost, but, for most Realtors, helping a consumer buy or sell a home in the most efficient manner possible, for the least, or most amount of money (depending on whether you are buying or selling) is in fact that Realtor’s top priority. And how does a Realtor accomplish that?
Contrary to popular belief, there is a lot more to buying a home than finding a home on the Internet that looks pretty on the outside and putting in an Offer or, alternatively, putting a For Sale sign up in the yard and crossing your fingers the perfect Buyer will just happen to come across your sign. As Buyers and Sellers become more knowlegeable and educated in the buying and selling process, just know that your Realtor is actually there to help you - not compete with you. I am your confidant, your PR person, your marketing guru, your fierce negotiator, your creative decorator, your housing market analyst, your financial planner, your vendor referral database, shoulder to cry on and sometimes even a dog walker when the family dog needs to come along to give his/her approval of the home. We understand it is a collaborative process and want to be right there beside you to lead and guide you through the sometimes complicated process of buying or selling a home.
So WHY do I do this? Because I love it and want to help my clients achieve their Real Estate goals! It is the most interesting and challenging career other than being a parent. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
