It is not as easy as it looks.

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart SA541769000


Ah yes, the life of a Real Estate Agent. It looks easy. Big money, little risk, wealthy clients that are easy to please. Or so it seems.

The average Real Estate Agent longs for the situation described above. In reality, the work is inconsistent, and the clients are demanding, unsure, and fickle. Yet we champion on because that is what we do.

Most people think that being a real estate agent is about sales. But selling is only one component in the job description. Other times you must be an analyst, a detective, sometimes a babysitter.

Every real estate agent has had their share of difficult transactions that are loaded with drama. Sometimes those transactions fall out making it look as if we screwed up. Most of the time it is not the agent that screws up. Other times a transaction goes so smooth you wonder why they all cannot be this way. Some will make you laugh; others will make you cry. You may find some hard to grasp, or simply shake your head in disbelief.

If you are lucky you connect with a serious and realistic client, the property is exemplary, and the cooperating agent is knowledgeable and attentive. But most often the buyers are demanding, the sellers inflexible and the property has a personality all its own.

That is why a real estate agent, no matter how successful, must weather the highs and lows, smooth out the ups and downs and make it all look easy.

If you are fortunate to get through the escrow process and finally here those words, “The property has closed.” You can reflect back on how well it all turned out.

I am reminded of the old television show The A-Team. Their famous byline was, “I love it when a plan comes together.” I cannot agree more.
