Is Every Real Estate Agent Uniquely Brilliant?

By
Education & Training with U.S.: I specialize in helping agents who have been in the business 2 years or less create a thriving business.


"Every child is uniquely brilliant."

-K12.com

The other day, a TV commercial for K12  came on and caught my attention with their tagline:
"Every child is uniquely brilliant." 

I love that!  It is so true.  Every person is born with unique and unlimited potential talents.  It is a matter of discovering and developing those talents through education, experiences, and practice.

Much of our potential "brilliance" lies in our individual interests which determines how we choose to spend our time.  Where we choose to spend our time allows us to move from incompetent to competent to brilliant within a chosen realm.


I look around me every day and am astounded at the variety of unique skills and abilities my friends and family have. Some think they are so lucky to have such skills and talents.  But, NO, they are not lucky. They have spent a lot of time developing those skills. 

Real estate is a tough business but it is diametrically easier if you can carve out your own unique space, where you stand apart from everyone else in the marketplace.

Is every agent uniquely brilliant?  No, but they could be!


What are your unique skills, abilities and interests?  Figure that out, become the undisputed expert in that field, and you can build a business niche that only YOU can serve.

YOU will be uniquely brilliant in your niche.

I agree that everyone can be brilliant, but I am often disappointed in how non brilliant some people choose to be, haha.

Hi Brian England ,
"Choosing" is the right word.  They choose not to make any effort and then wallow in self-pitty because others are so much luckier than they are.

I kind of mouthed your answer to myself before I saw it. No they're not all brilliant but the potential does exist!

First off, how incredible that K12 put this commercial on the air. Yay!! Even twins can't do it exactly the same, so that makes each and every one of us like snowflakes, no two are alike! 

And as to niches, thankfully, I was "divinely guided" somehow in listening to that inner marketing voice that said, be the best in your own neck-of-the-woods. It has served me well over the last 14+ years! 

GREAT advice.

We are all definitely unique, that's for sure. And we can all be brilliant, should we choose to be.

Hi Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate ,
I think the ad is brilliant and love the premise of the school to teach kids based on their individual learning style.  So many kids need that out-of-the-box experience in education.   Thank you so much for reading and commenting.

Yes, it is a matter of choice, isn't it?  I truly believe that.

This post is brilliant, Carol! I would have also nominated it had I seen it before your post came out! Thanks to Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland for the nomination!

I have a friend who has twins and rather than 'pushing' them to be the same, she encourages them to take their own path. It's quite interesting to watch that society expects them to be the same, yet with the parents encouragement to be unique, others are often surprised at the differences. I love that! 

As for real estate - two people can serve the same niche but, their style can be vastly different. I believe those who carry their own torch and are not the 'followers' are, indeed, the ones that are in higher demand. 

Hope you're having a fantastic Sunday!

In another life, I wanted to be a teacher...and my philosophy was that the problem with our educational system is in its conformity. Forcing wonderful unique souls to all learn the same way. It's seriously impossible.  And causes many a child self-esteem issues. :(   Imagine celebrating our uniqueness, instead of shaming it?  So glad you decided to feature this post - so worthy. D

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS
I'm not sure I've ever had my name used in the same sentence as "brilliant" but I love it and will gratefully accept it!  LOL   I truly believe we all can be, if we only choose to and are given the freedom to get out of the box society often tries to put us in.  Thanks for reading and commenting.   Happy Sunday!

After my crazy real estate day ended in the successful closings of back to back transactions, I'm feeling pretty accomplished and very uniquely brilliant for hanging on and getting my clients across the finish line! Some days are especially challenging and today was MY day to stay calm and get it done. You said it. Real estate IS a tough business and difficult people make it harder than it needs to be.
