Share The Love - February Challenge (Post #2)

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Share the Love - A February Challenge (Post #2) is the second part of the monthly challenge co-hosted by ActiveRain Members Rocky Dickerson and Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist. Consumers should choose someone who is trustworthy in their real estate transactions. Responsible REALTORS® are positively positive.

Positive REALTORS® have a thirst for knowledge and education.  Their experience positively impacts real estate transactions. They attend continuing education, seminars, training sessions, listen to motivational speakers, organize their work space, make presentations by supplementing accurate marketing materials with current trends, graphics and statistics, and negotiate on a client’s behalf.

Positive REALTORS® know the area, and stay in their own lane working in their areas of expertise. Many go on to serve their local Boards in Leadership positions or serve on Committees and/or give back to their communities.

Positive REALTORS® pay their fair share of dues with time and money because they care enough about consumers. Also, they problem solve, negotiate, continuously learn new technology, communicate often, show up and answer phones. Many REALTORS® have built a successful business because of repeat business and referrals. The nicest compliment you can give a REALTOR® is more business.

Positive REALTORS® teach, guide, inform, inspire, learn, and always tell the truth, without sugar coating, lying, or cheating anyone else out of business. They conduct themselves with professionalism, truth, honesty, integrity, abiding by the Golden Rule, which always keeps positive REALTORS® in business while maintaining healthy relationships.

Positive REALTORS® cooperate with other real estate agents. They do not arm wrestle, attack, undermine, or use disparaging language. Positive REALTORS® know and understand they are working in their client's best interest and not their own. Nor do positive REALTORS® express arrogance or act condescending toward another human being regardless of years of experience.

Positive REALTORS® know that the market shifts and when it happens, they are prepared for multiple offers, low inventory, short sales, or foreclosures and they can easily guide their clients through the process without losing their temper, blaming others, or pretending the market is what it isn’t – meaning pretending the market is better by listing higher than the current market's comparable properties. Positive REALTORS® cooperate with other Brokers, real estate agents and everyone involved in the transaction, from the Lender or Bank, to the Title Company where buyers and sellers typically close in Texas, to the Home Inspector, Appraiser, and most of all their clients.  

Positive REALTORS® know, like and trust other positive real estate agents in the business. For example, my current buyer was referred by a REALTOR® who I previously worked with who now lives outside of the area. Before that, I received a referral from a CRS/RRC REALTOR® who asked me to personally represent members of her family who she knew would take good care of them and I did!

Positive REALTORS® positively know what’s best for their clients, even if circumstances change because the reality is, REALTORS® always choose what’s in their client’s best interest. The most important thing consumers should know, is that when a REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® they are highly trained in continuous education. They learn Risk Management Procedures and abide by the Code. Professionals are required to treat all parties to the transaction honestly and fairly and cooperate with other Brokers, never, ever disparaging another person’s name or the real estate industry. 

What's so great about Positive REALTORS®? They are positively inspired by positive people from all different types of Leadership positions like Walt Disney who made lives fun and enjoyable. To quote Walt Disney, "We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." We, the positive REALTORS® don't have time for anyone, such as dishonest media or reporters who don't respect our profession or the consumer. Why do people keep moving to Texas? Because they want to be positively happy when they make that transition.                                                                                  

The "P" in Patricia Feager, REALTOR® stands for positive attitude.

Good morning Patricia. Realtors should stay in their lane. Very true. Just saw a lisitng the other day where the Realtor was 50 miles away. Here in Chicago that is a 45 minute drive without heavy traffic. No local knowledge translates to poor service. Enjoy our day!

Wayne Martin - so true! When I moved out of Chicago to Northern, IL, it always amazed me when the sun was shining where I lived and my mother would call to complain about the horrible blizzard in Chicago where you live! It's all about perspective and people's point of view. 

Have a wonderful day!

Good morning Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP it is so vital that people understand the legal and ethical lengths that REALTORS are reaquired to go to in order to serve their clients needs. Thank you.

Rocky Dickerson - Legal and Ethics goes hand in hand here in TX. You can't have one class without the other and they must be renewed. Consequences are often painful lessons and who wants to go down that lane!

Patricia excellent description of what a "Positive Realtor" is.  In fact many of those same qualities apply to other professionals as well.
