“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.
