What is a champion?

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

Years ago, there was a real estate speaker that referred to successful agents as a “champion”. Lately I have begun pondering, “What is a champion?”

 

Is it how many transactions they do? Is it how much dollar volume they do? Is it how they are known for their integrity or their character? Is it how they are known for being intelligent or a forward thinker? Is it because they know their stuff so well, that you want to do a transaction with them?

 

I know what I believe they are not. I believe they are not egotists. They are not drama kings or drama queens. They are not someone that you always have to watch you back around them.

 

But that is just my ponderings. What are yours?

The champion is all those things and more and a champion is willing to fail and get back up as many times as they need to get the job done!

Hi Rocky- a Champion can be many things to each of us. They persevere, practice, adapt and never give up.

Hey there Paul! Yes, when you are selfless like that in feeling best when you made others feel good, I would say you are a champion

Hello Rocky - the subject of champions in all forms is an excellent source for some soulful pondering.  The different definitions, interpretations and examples are numerous.  Talk about a plethora of pondering.

Rocky you are so spot on with this post, the deals that I put together are because there is no ego's involved and we are looking out for the buyer and seller's best interest. When I am in a deal with egomaniacs I cringe.... just closed one recently inspite of the agent on the buyer's side, Endre

Morning Rocky.

At my age, I'm a champion for just waking up this morning. It all depends on ones outlook

Good morning, Rocky... I totally agree with what you say a champion is not. As for what a champion is... I go back to the "text book" definition of a champion: (1) a person who fights or speaks for another person; (2) a person accepted as better than all others in a skill, sport, etc. I like to think I am a champion for my clients's best interests and that my clients see me as better than anyone else they might know in terms of how I practice my craft/skill.
