I first want to apologize to all my fellow professional Realtors in Arizona for having to write this. But I am very tired of seeing Arizona agents wearing flip flops, shorts, and Tee shirts. No wonder the public has such a low regard for real estate agents, we are not seen as professionals.
Ok, fellow agents, go ahead and send me nasty replies if you want to, but how can any agent claim to be a true professional wearing Flip Flops, shorts, and a tee shirt?
Maybe since I came from a business environment where professional dress was the accepted standard that this low level of attire bothers me so much.
Please, all Arizona real estate agents, raise the standard of our professional appearance to the public and at least dress like a professional. NO MORE FLIP FLOPS, SHORTS, AND TEE SHIRTS.
Also, I want to compliment all of my fellow Realtors who dress for success and dress like the professionals that they are.
Just to be clear, I am not correlating ethics and integrity with dress. I am only commenting on the public perception of real estate agents when they do not dress as professionals.
