Everyone has different experiences in any profession...being licensed for a long time doesn't mean you know everything about every area....and no one expects that knowledge from agents/lenders with any length or experience.
When an agent....title person...lender with lots of experience in a given area explains the reason for....X....the process of Y....If this happens, the result is that...timelines...property values...the list goes on and on.
Before you jump down the throat of an person with experience...or write a comment on an area in which you don't live, a contract not correctly completed, a niche you don't have, a loan you never handled...Listen...you might learn something.
We always say...."The Smartest People we know, Know what they don't know". A college diploma, multiple degrees, certifications, designations...licenses ...do not mean you know all there is to know about everything....everywhere. Education is a wonderful thing and we pride ourselves on having an "Education Based Practice." Can we learn more...Yes....we have that option every day to learn in real estate and to learn life lessons as well, If is up to each of use to open our minds...to get rid of that nasty word ASSUME. Basing real estate practices, comments, life in general on assumptions...the way it WAS done is the way it always SHOULD be done....old news and not necessarily correct.
It's almost a NEW decade....how about a Resolution/Revolution to use both ears....an open mind....and the very kindergarten old but still very true...."Watch, Look and Listen" ....how refreshing that would be !
