Incompetence is the true crisis. ~ Albert Einstein

 

Real estate agents must know how representation works, along with the laws that we essentially adhere to, plus fully understand all legal documentation. Otherwise, it is to the detriment of the consumer and potentially, a blemish on the industry.

 

An experienced professional:

Avoids mistakes that could potentially cause a financial loss, future legal problems or impediments in achieving the goals.

Acts on the best interests of the client, nor the other party or putting themselves before all else protects them from hidden agenda's.

Conveys effective, accurate communication, allowing buyers and sellers to make informed decisions throughout the process. 

 

Though everyone started at the beginning, long-time success stories are made from individuals who create positive outcomes, foster a professional atmosphere, continue to prioritize knowledge and maintain ethical behavior.

 

Robert Kiyosaki once said, "When success and incompetence meet, disaster is not far away." Thankfully, he has not shown up at my office door to congratulate himself on being right! Knowing the rules & laws protect everyone.

 

Happy sales all!

Some training, especially some type of mentor program plus being surrounded by the I CAN'S will be benficial to stave off the I CAN'TS, Kathy Streib. And then some are unable to put in the work because they are used to everyone else doing everything for them!

A very good topic to discuss, Wanda ... incompetence is one of the highest violations of real estate law in our State, as well.  Mostly, folks are out of their element (location) when working with clients. Better off referring those customers to experienced brokers in those locations.

Even those who are just starting out in the business should rely on mentors to make sure they are doing things the right way.

Michael's comment makes perfect sense, Endre Barath, Jr.. Learning how an entire industry functions in as little as 6 weeks, can be intimidating. The standards should be set higher, in my opinion!

By all means, yes, Dan Hopper! I refer out of my area because the last thing I'd ever want is to hurt someone financially or otherwise!

Absolutely, Brian England! So many 'wing it' or are afraid to ask questions because it makes them look stupid (they think).

Good morning Wanda. The only thing constant is change. The other constant for the professional is understanding and adapting to the changes. Enjoy your day.

Good morning Wanda,

Not sure how I missed your post! S glad that Kathy Streib featured it this week in her "Ah-ha" moments for the week. Love the lead photo and OMG that quote from Albert Einstein is priceless and so true! A new agent must diligently interview to find the right broker who provides good training and a mentor. This is not the business to be incompetent in!

Hello Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! What a great post. When I think about incompetence, a new agent was not the first that came to my mind, it was actually the Brokers out there. I can honestly tell you that I did not have a single Broker out of three that I worked for who contributed to my success or knowledge.

Change happens daily and we're lucky if it's subtle and not chaotic, unexpected, life-changing events. Of course, we have to deal with those as well, Wayne Martin. Happy Sunday to you!

Incompetence shows up when education takes an extended vacation with no return plans, Dorie Dillard Austin TX. Unfortunately, it's becoming too common!

Have been lucky that way, Beth Atalay and am surrounded by true professionals who walk the talk and are there when needed! You are a competent agent because you had the desire to make it happen, despite the lazy nature of some brokers!
