My wife has an excellent eye for value (of course) and is an easy to talk to people person. She is could be a Realtor, but her real calling is Teaching. She knows that she can not talk about a specific house but often she will talk about the area, is it a great place to raise a family, nearby attractions, what she appreciates in a home, etc.
At times she will say "I really love the house at xxx Pine Street because it has xxxx..." As a relative newcomer to the business, I appreciate my wife and know that she will help buyers decide which is their 'dream house'. Not speaking about specific houses, but in giving her knowldge of the area, and what she would like to have in a home is a very nice way to give my buyers a valued source of input for me.
I will probably even have my 8 year old come along with some buyers who may appreciate knowing what she has to say (that's for another Blog). She loves to discover and point out things I was not aware of.
Do you use your family to help sell ? If you had the child who could do it, would you bring that child along to offer a kids point of view ? I love the quality time with her and it helps my buyers. (And your kids will not be considered real estate professionals, so the exclusions about spouses does not apply).
