What real estate do that people don't know

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner 01293735 CA

Here are some tasks real estate agents do that most people do not realize:

Pay upfront for cleanings, repairs etc. and hopefully get reimbursed

Get keys made

Spruce up listings when showing or open house

Pick up garbage when showing homes

Meet repairmen

Keep track of home warranty information

Answer the phone 7 days a week

Pick up clients at airport

Take their escrow check to the bank and deposit

Notify out of area owners of broken sprinklers, leaky faucets etc.

And more and more and more -

And yur list is but a tip of the iceberg.  If people had any idea of all the work that goes into our jobs they would be less likely to say that all we do is list and go to the bank with the check.

This is a good list Lori.  It's a shame that buyers & sellers often have no idea what's going on behind the scenes.
