Real Estate Competition: a different perspective, the views of a Beverly Hills Realtor Endre Barath, Jr.

www.endrebarath.com

There are so many different views about Realtors, especially about their competitive spirit. I have recently read a post from one of our regular and respected blogger’s and the message was not quite to what my ‘modus operandi’ consists of. So, with that said, let me present my views.

There are a few times, when I look around and see what others are doing and check out how I compare to them in production, marketing and standing in the country and locally as well. Keeping in mind, that this tendency to look around is  very seldom for me. I usually get prompted when the 1st Quarter, the 2nd Quarter and 3rd Quarter ends. As well as when the final numbers come out at the end of the year. These looks are always prompted by the Berkshire Hathaway standings list, the email that is distributed to all agents. I find very limited value to see what others are doing or have accomplished. It does not make me more motivated, nor does it create an incentive to “surpass” one of my colleagues.

 Just as a background: I always competed against myself and no one else. I developed this habit when I was running Track and Cross Country in High School and it stayed with me for the rest of my life. What I mean by that is I practiced harder and longer and focused on improving myself to be the best and better than I did before in placement and times at the various Track Meets.

When I was at the Military Academy followed by Airborne and Ranger Schools our motto was always “teamwork” and “improve your own skills” not watch other people’s accomplishments. The goal was always reaching the “team objective”.

When I became a Realtor, I translated the “team objective” mentality to my clients wants and needs.

When I have a listing appointment in person, or over the phone or via emails I look at it from a “team” mentality. I do not care or want to know who I am supposedly competing against. The reality is I am not competing against anyone. I am here to find out if the sellers are serious and want to sell their property and are we going to be a good fit.

I monitor and improve what I am doing to be the best that I can be and that is what makes me very successful in the Beverly Hills Real Estate market and community.

I agree, it is all about what value you can deliver. Even everyone seems does the same and there is are thousands of agents, only few understand what to bring value with their service and not just make a sale.

Debbie Reynolds  I find it if we do not take the  "winner take all" mentality and focus on our own skill and improving on them and fous on our clients' needs and get along with our fellow Realtors we all will succeed!Endre

Am so glad I found your blog this morning after the crazy last few weeks in our business. You put into words exactly how I feel about my real estate business. My clients are my "team" and I give the best personal service possible. No client is rubber stamped or passed on to another team member. They know they can call me anytime - and that's why they hire me.
