Knowledge and Competence In Real Estate

By
Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.


"Any fool can know.  The point is to understand."

-Albert Einstein

Yesterday I wrote a blog post where I identified the basics in real estate as knowledge and competence.

To be knowledgeable in real estate is the accumulation of information and staying current with trends.

Competence in real estate is understanding what you know and how to put your knowledge to work for the benefit of your clients.

Are you knowledgeable AND competent in your business?

Carol, another important component is education. Will Hamm touched on this in his comment. Our business is constantly changing and to have knowledge and be competent we need to continue to learn!
