Golf and Real Estate

Real Estate Agent with Aubrey and Associates Realty

This really isn't about golf.  I have played enough golf in my lifetime to be just thouroughly frustrated with it.  I was watching the Tiger Woods press conference after he had won his 3rd US Open at Torrey Pines.  A reporter asked him if he was nervous when he teed it up at the 18th hole trailing Rocco Mediate by one stroke.  It was his answer that got me, his answer was: "of course I was nervous, being nervous just means that you care."

Here is the best Golfer in the World, arguably the best golfer ever, and he still gets nervous.  It vindicated the feelings that we have when go into a listing presentation or a buyers presentation.  It is the jitters that we feel when we have researched listings then take buyers to see them.  It isn't necessarily the feelings of self doubt, but rather the acknowledgement that you care.  You care that you aren't wasting your buyers and your time showing them homes.  It means that you want to get the highest possible price and the quickest possible sale, with the least amount of hassle for your sellers.


So take it from one of the best in the World:  It's okay to be nervous, it just means that you care!  Have a great week!

interesting that you picked up on that comment, I bet he gets asked that a dozen times a day. (interviewers are not known for much more than the 4-W's and How)  I got to see the last bit of the sudden death, Tiger is a man that cares about each stroke.  he deserved to win.  I doubt I could even walk the course yet alone do it swinging-  Did you see the crowd that turned out on a Monday to see the men compete?  wow-   be good  cw

Good point.  I think everyone is nervous when they are dedicated to what they are about to do.

How true. It's human nature to become nervous in pressure situations. It's how we deal with those nerves that makes the difference of being successful or not. You have a great week too!
