Sunday Edition For 4/5/2020 - A Catalyst For Change

An April Contest by Patricia Feager

 

The business of Real Estate and education does not end. A home is a beginning, a middle, or an end of a chapter. Regardless of what stage of life one is going through, all clients must be treated with respect. Whatever an agent’s personal needs are, being motivated by greed is not acceptable. Being called upon to be the catalyst for change, is the highest honor bestowed upon a REALTOR®. A pandemic is not something anyone planned for and we are all in this together. Helping other agents struggling with doubt is the greatest gift I can give to the agents I know, such as on ActiveRain who are a vital part of this industry and whom I have had the privilege of crossing paths with often. Within my community and on AR, together, we must continue to support one another. Our years of training never could have prepared us for what the world is going through today. 2020 is the year of mortal fear. Home buyers and sellers need agents who can lead with confidence or refer their business to someone more qualified. The business of investing in real estate is not a game. People’s lives are at stake. How should an agent lift the burden of those who need to move without fear? The recipe for success begins with kindness. My business creed focuses on kindness, compassion, and public safety.

 

KINDNESS – I shall not burden others with my fears. Nor bitter if a client does not follow through or changes their mind. No matter how long the transaction takes, I will be mindful of patience, understanding, and knowledgeable about changes to contracts, amendments, technology, education, and implementation of better expertise. I vow to be kind from the start. Decent throughout. Honest always.

 

COMPASSION – I understand moving is stressful. There are many components to the process. Discipline in a necessity. Kindness, understanding, mixed in with having fun with less stress, I mix all my emotions together to build stronger relationships with passion and compassion by helping others to succeed.

 

PUBLIC SAFETY – I will never take public safety for granted, another human being, or anything for granted. On the day I found myself dragged under my car on gravel road after my car ran over me before Thanksgiving Day 2019, public safety became crystal clear. Underneath my car, I saw my whole life flash before me. I thought about the people I could have potentially hurt or killed with my runaway car on FM 407 and my family who would never really know what happened to me if I did not survive. First responders would not know how the accident happened. Members on ActiveRain would have assumed, I quit. But I am not a quitter. I survived, deeply convinced, I still have work to do here on earth. Strangers appeared when I needed them most. I want to be there, to appear, to help buyers and sellers without any personal agendas when they need help. Where the world is now, many are experiencing an interrupted life, mine is no exception. My life is a blank sheet of lined paper waiting for details to be written. All business has risks and liabilities. When it comes to the business of real estate, public safety takes precedence. Lives matter. People need to move. Throughout the remainder of my life I will be kind, compassionate, and always mindful of public safety and what I need to do.  

 

In sum, we are at the crossroads of medical and business technology, new jobs, better utilization of ways to conduct meetings without using gasoline and toll roads. Once shelter in place is lifted, the housing market shall rise again; but it will take time, kindness and compassion on everyone's part. Above all, public safety is paramount.

Patricia, these are unusal times, and for most of us, a unique way of doing business. But, when it's all said and done, business carried out with kindness, compassion and grace never really changes. Just the mechanics change. Most of our buyer clients are circling waitng for this to be over. Our listing clients are all owners of vacant property. It's a new normal.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - your comments are always peaceful and kind. Thank you!

I just came back from visiting Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 and saw the Sugar Cane Train. That mural was so beautiful. I read her comments, including yours. What a wonderful memory and a very special place. I made a comment to Georgie, wouldn't it be great if all of us on AR could meet together for one big hug.  

Thanks, Paul. I consider you and Georgie friends too.

Hi Patricia:

I would have known who wrote this post without seeing your name!!

Yes, the manner in which we need to conduct business thesse days, when we can, have changed, but the basics of kindness and compassion remain as important as always, if not more so.

Lottie Kendall -and Jeff Dowler, CRS - I guess I have a signature voice here on ActiveRain and I think you do too! It's nice to be recognized and even better yet to have had the pleasure of speaking to both of you either in person, on the phone, or via ZOOM. 

As real estate agents our top priority is to build and maintain business relationships. And when those experiences with other people are positive these individuals get added to our personal mental library as we help each other to grow and understand that like minds are always adding something new to learn. Mutual respect and best practices are great attributes. I will always remember you.

This is a good time for reflection about how things will change in the future.  At least some things won't change... your focus on kindness, compassion, and safety.  I'm curious about your incident with your car... will I find the story in your blog?

Patricia, what a powerful post!  Your words embody so much empathy and caring that it's hard NOT to blink back a couple of tears!  I hope you are doing well and continue to do well.  I can't imagine what you went through but your post gives a clear idea that life is not to be taken for granted!

Your words, "many are experiencing an interrupted life," are so true. While life has been interrupted, it is not on hold. We continue to move forward in a new way, mindful of our responsibilities to family, friends, our clients and ourselves.
