SCHEMES & SCREAMS AND KARMA TOO

KARMA

 

“You can't get there alone. People have to help you, and I do believe in karma. I believe in paybacks. You get people to help you by telling the truth, by being earnest. ---Randy Pausch

 

At least a million real estate agents a day ask their clients, where do you want to go? Life is not a game of show me the houses and when I’m good and ready to buy, I’ll think about it and let you know.

 

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” ---Wayne Dyer


The more people know the more responsible they are, and whether you’re an agent or anyone else, by the Law of Karma those who do not practice, suffers the consequences. A boomerang is a toy that people can easily understand, once it is thrown, it comes right back to the person who threw it. Working with a real estate agent is not a game. Everything people do good or bad and whatever they decide comes back to the one who sent the boomerang. It’s the Law of Karma.

 

“Dangerous consequences will follow when politicians and rulers forget moral principles.” ---Dalai Lama

 

Competition in the real estate business is fierce. There was a time when people looking to buy houses could identify a reputable real estate broker and an agent by the color of their blazer, a logo, such as a Hot Air Balloon, the broker’s unique brand, referrals and testimonials which flourished between them. Healthy competition is good!

“Society is always taken by surprise at any new example of common sense” ---Ralph Waldo Emerson

Unfortunately, it is harder today because the motivation to buy and sell without a real estate agent and sell directly to consumers through some strange type of advertisement makes consumer choices more confusing. A home is one of the most expensive investments. For something as serious as heart surgery, shopping around for the cheapest surgeon and signing papers agreeing to something electronically without knowing anything about them can be more than just a financial mistake. For example, in real estate knowing upfront that someone carriers E&O Insurance, has traditional and proven education, years of training, knowledge, and expertise is important. That is why having Buyer and Seller Representation guiding the consumer through the process is important. Sadly, companies offering to buy directly to cut out the traditional real estate agents are popping up all over America and so are residential rentals. 

 

The reality of Karma has to do with enlightenment the cause, and effect. When buying or selling real estate it's more than just quick money. Schemes and screams are being heard all over America. Just because advertisement states someone can buy your house for free or direct by cutting out the real estate agent or some other scheme doesn’t mean everyone follows moral principles and ethics. Karma is nothing new.

Good morning, Patricia... I have long believed that what each of us puts out into the universe is what comes back to us. I've seen it happen time and time again.

Good morning Patricia. I enjoyed your post and agree with the serious responsibilities agents have. However I never believed in karma. Too many monsters exist and have always.

Patricia I think I am well versed in this business, but I would never ever consider purchasing a home without Realtor representation.  It is crazy to do so in my opinion.

I try to do the right thing in how I treat everyone, as I don't want bad karma to come my way.

Great quotes, Patricia. We can't control others, but can control our attitude and responses. The quote that best exemplifies that:

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” ---Wayne Dyer

Nina Hollander - Bad Karma stinks. People who believe it can feel the energy when it isn't good. I have never heard anyone say this, but I always believed Karma is a humans sixth sense. 

Wayne Martin  - As a former Attorney, I'm sure you can think of many examples!

Sheila Anderson - Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed my blog post today!

 Michael Jacobs - I always enjoy hearing your thoughts!

George Souto - You are wise! Know matter how much I know about the principles of mortgage and finances, I could not and would not do what you do! Also, here in TX, we are not an Attorney State. The license requirements to become licensed are more than most other states, and of course, REALTORS are background checked, fingerprinted, and must be in compliance with State and National Policies and Procedures. Buyers and sellers have the option of choosing one. We close at the Title Company where there are attorneys. I have represented a few attorneys in the purchase of their own homes, i.e., practicing Criminal Law, Family Law, and Tort. 

Dave Rosenmarkle - Thank you! That's a favorite quote of mine too!

Brian England - I have no doubt that you always do the right thing and that you follow your moral compass.

Thank you, everyone, for your generous and thoughtful comments. I wish you all good Karma!

Lottie Kendall - That quote by Wayne Dway really has to simmer a bit. It is definitely worth pondering! His gifts to the world were filled with creative and loving insights. 

Thanks, Lottie. I hope you're having an extraordinary day!

I guess there will always be those who try to take shortcuts and think it will make things easier.
