As you all know I am a new agent and as a way to have steady income I've decided to turn to my strength and that is leasing. I advertise rentals and have gotten lots of calls so far, I look at it as a good way to create good solid relationships, collect email addresses and as many new contacts as possible. I can now confidently make it known that I can also assist on the buying and selling side. It was a huge financial struggle for me to obtain my armls key and register with an assocaition. Now that I have that, I feel so confident, now I feel like the doors have just opened and it can only o up from here.
Anywho, I'm sure your asking yourself, why is she so surprised?.....Well I advertise other rentals on Craigslist, as I stated above and 99% of the time I have to call other agents to get LB codes or other information in general about their listings. This has been so difficult for me and not because of the prospects but because of other agents. Some never respond to me, some take days to give me codes and there have been a couple that have acutally answered my call or replied to my text right away with entry information or answering my question in regards to the property. Overallmajority I have had to contact in regards to rentals have been non responsive and rude. Why am I so amazed?? I should expect this to happen right?
I just don't understand, I thought we were here to build great relationships not only with our prospects but with each other as agents. I joined activerain and received so many warm welcomes, amazing advice, encouragement and everyone was so kind and so nice to me, it's appreciated because what we do is hard enough and the encouragement and compassion is defintely needed and welcomed!
Not only do I want to be the agent that is well liked and respected by clients and prospects but by other agents as well. I strive everyday like everyone else and I want to be able to be there for other agents as you have been there for me!
