Everything. From the moment we meet in person there is the expectation that you will actively be providing value. You know some history of the building, the area, the builder something they don't know, couldn't know unless you did this kind of thing every day. You know the traffic patterns, the best walkable restaurants that fit the lifestyle you describe.
Expectations are one thing, the other is performance. There are specific legal and timely forms that need to be taken care of. Time is of the essence is at the heart of real estate. Nothing happens for the Realtor® until both parties are satisfied and the transaction is complete. Performance now demands the professional provide specific and detailed guidance during the process. The Realtor® will protect and defend your interests. A Realtor®, by code, will get the highest and best use of the land as possible. Expectations are one thing, performance is another.
To accomplish anything you need people involved who also understand the process and can get something accomplished. It is amazing how often an opportunity is lost because some step was not anticipated. Whether it is how the other agent needs to be communicated with, is is text, email, phone call or smoke signal, or does the deeper history of the parties involved need to be further discussed to make sure each party is best suited for the other. These tasks demand some delicacy and finesse. It is not that anyone could get things done it is that those who are better at it get things done better. Your Million Dollar Year Day 21 Can I drink now
