REAL ESTATE LEGS (any legs really)

When I fist read Moby Dick by Herman Melville, it brought to my attention the adventure of going to sea for the first time. It sounds simple enough but in reality its an experience that cannot be rushed or substituted. One must put in the time and then, at some point is worthy to earn their "salt" as they say and then acquire their sea legs. That's who everyone wants to ship with

EVERY PROFESSION REQUIRES IT

Just obtaining a degree, diploma, license or permit doesn't make you ruler of all you survey. It is a purchase ticket to enter into and begin work in that chosen field. Like anything else, it requires and demands a learning curve as further payment for the choice. All must pay this price if they are to go on

NO SUBSTITUTE FOR EXPERIENCE

Being mature, seasoned and experienced is a value that everyone all over the world comes to appreciate in regards to any product or services. We all seek the tried and true i.e. the consistency and predictability of a purchase of goods or services that require our hard-earned money in return. 

LOVE or MONEY?

Often I hear and see well-meaning people in all circumstances that are eager to get going & that is a good thing. However the way & how is important if not more so as each individual begins their chosen profession. If what is driving you is money that's one thing. If it is love of what you do or want...another

RESULTS DON'T LIE

Leaving motives aside the constant we are all looking at is RESULTS regardless of the drive assuming it is above board, legal and ethical. How we come into the result is important because humans require satisfaction on many levels. Emotions, intellect, psychological & spiritual needs must be fed correctly

INTERNING

Being able to get experience while learning as you go was a traditional in its concept. You usually learned the family business by growing up in it. Either you ran that at some point or you went on to your calling. There is no short-cut for knowing what you are talking about or doing. You have to know

DOTS & CONNECTIONS

There is only so much someone can teach you or that you can read about. At some point it has to add-up, click & your personal dots have to connect. When you get "it" others will too & your personal stock will go up. Being good at what you do or stand behind sells itself. Not being good sells (tells) as well

WHO PAYS?

 

 

Start-up can be dicey. It can be handled & gleaned from & makes for good teaching as long as no one else has to pay for your learning curve mistakes. That wouldn't be fair to the ones who are expecting results & who are entitled to whatever you are representing. That's why there is the following:

LICENSING & REGULATION

This is to insure a certain level of expectation by the consumer for doing business with you. Usually the rules are common sensed based but for some have to be spelled out upfront and clear to avoid misunderstanding and losses if any. Buying a car, Real Estate or expensive anything requires this:

DILIGENCE and DISCLOSURE

Not only does the consumer have to have eyes open but those that interact with them as well and it is not a request but a requirement. Failing that lawsuits abound and in many instances criminal complaints too. Intent plays a big part in the outcome of a situation. Again human nature at work

HANDS-ON

My introduction into Real Estate was through property management. I knew zero about the subject except common knowledge. Prop mgmt comes with so many different applications of practice that are impossible to study to learn. One must live through it progressing & learning as they go. Hands-on works both ways i.e. you grab on and it grips you. That's pretty intimate and commitment driven

THE LINK

With any chosen endeavor comes the common denominator of all i.e. the people element. Its all about people. The products, services and procedures are all standard for the professions but the people are all different. That brings me to the very heart of what is necessary even mandatory for any profession

INTER-PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

Learning how to navigate through the different personalities is the most challenging of the life processes one will ever encounter. Pick any situation & it begins. People react & respond differently & require a minimum of predictable contact. Some require more or less maintenance than others

THE WRAP-UP

Your legs, seasoning, experience or savvy comes when it comes. It will be at times forged in the furnaces of fire or presented non-chalantly. Risks, problems and falls are opportunities to grow and of those there are no end. The professional decides how much or how quick they wish to progress but reality and in the trench testing has the final say so.

Richie Alan Naggar - With time and experience, you learned to tighten the grip when you learned Property Management. It wasn't just the property you were managing either, was it? Plus, nothing about Property Management is easy. My parents were landlords and I understand now why my dad didn't have time for family - yet between his job and the time we had together as family, quality time was so critical. With PM there's always one more fire to put out or dispute to resolve. Your words hit home. Thank you!

To continue the metaphor, some times those real estate legs are as strong as a marathoner.  There are times, especially in the beginning (but not always only so), when the legs are week and a colleague or friend grabbing a side and lifting you up as they carry some weight instead of your legs also does the trick.

And likewise, when you are good & strong, at times it's generous to help someone with their burden to ensure they can move forward.
