What would it take for a Realtor to get into Heaven?

I was just thinking, what would God want to see in a Realtor before allowing them to pass through the Pearly Gates?  I guess some of the most important criteria would be:

  • Did you put others best interest ahead of your own?
  • Did you show homes based solely upon the clients criteria no matter what the commission was?
  • Did you show homes that were listed by other Realtors no matter which company or your personal feelings toward that listing Realtor?
  • Did you work with all people that asked for your help regardless of their age, sex, nationality, religion or sexual persuasion.
  • Did you provide service providers based solely upon their merit and the benefits they bring to your client?
  • Did you give answers to questions and concerns that were truthful and let your client know if you did not know the answer?
  • When trying to get a listing did you always have the clients best interest at heart?
  • Did you provide a truthful and honest assessment of the current market value, best list price, expected sale price and the amount of time it would most likely take to sell the home?
  • Did you promote the home as a professional with pictures of the interior and exterior of the home as well as the surrounding community?
  • Would you allow the seller out of their contract should they not be satisfied with your services?
  • Did you let your client know your areas of expertise and the communities that you work and also areas that you are not so familiar with?
  • Do you know the meaning of Fiduciary?

These seem to be the standards I try to always keep in mind and live up to.  Are there others that were missed.  Are there some on the list you don't feel should be asked?

This is a good list of responsibilities that regardless of Heaven's existence should be applied daily. I think the Buddha's Noble Eighfold Path would agree with this also.

Nice job Tony, sounds like a fine code of ethics that you are following.  It will get you through plenty of doors, up there and down here.
