I recently blogged about changing primary care physicians. Mind you, I've not had a primary care physician in the past 15+ years.
My new doctor reviewed my lab results, and stated all was perfect, and I didn't need to come back for another 6 months. Fabulous news!
So, how come the last doctor wanted to continue to see me every 8 weeks, I wondered?
Chalk it up to different practices. The prior doctor may have been more conservative, more hands on. The truth is, he & I had the same conversation every 8 weeks, and then the scrip pad would come out for the same drugs, and I set up an appointment for another 8 weeks.
I grew tired of this, as I felt I was on a hamster wheel, with no forward progress.
Enter the new doc, who writes my scrips for 3 months at a time, and has told me I don't need to come back for six months. Both of which save me time and money.
How does this compare to Realtors?
Simple: one agent may have a different perspective based on their market experience. Their marketing plan and activities may be different. The way sellers and buyers interact with them may be different.
You only know when you talk to more than one, or get a second opinion.
If you feel your professional is not the right choice for you, follow your instincts and check with someone else. After all, if you can save both time and money, why wouldn't you want to?
