You'll Find The Unconditional Realtor At The Heart Rock Cafe

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Heart RockWith assessing Realtors for your various buying, selling, and investing needs I would challenge you Mr. or Ms. Consumer that after you interview them for their skill set of what you are trying to accomplish, their knowledge of the local market, and real estate in general, you put this criterion to the test. Their caring level. The amount of concern they have for YOU. It is truly the "heart" of the matter. You want someone that is color blind to ALL that you are and comes to work for you with an open heart. Where do you find one such as this?

You'll Find The Unconditional Realtor At The Heart Rock Cafe.

Yes, we know they are in all the major cities. But the smaller cities too. Being unconditional to you is a great feeling because you can tell them ANYTHING.

With being unconditional, a bond of trust forms between the Realtor and the client. Obviously unconditional extends beyond real estate to friends and also those that invest their life and time to love us as well. How do you know someone is being unconditional toward you? In general they are not noisy people bossing you around.

Love Dog

Unconditional people take time to listen to you. They invest THEMSELVES in what matters to you. What you say to them is held in confidence. They are a true ally to you, helping you and educating you. I've found many unconditional people have quite the sense of humor too.

If you want some real world visualization think of a faithful dog. If a person treated you as well as your favorite dog then you have come upon that unconditional one.

It is all about caring and loving you. Seek their knowledge first, but then find the ones with heart.

Dear Gary,

Yet another great post! Often Realtors and Brokers forget real estate is not just numbers and stats. It is really all about people and homes. Finding a Realtor that cares about you and what you want is the most important thing. BTW-I love the heart photo!

Gary:  Good post.  It is easy for self-interested agent to razzle dazzle during a presentation, but ultimately, their intentions are not always in the best interest of the client.  You're right.  They are loud, bossy people.  They don't listen.  Having a Realtor that listens to you and helps you find the right solution to meet your needs is the one you want. They may not always have good news for you, but they will be honest and give you data as to why the situation is the way it is.  They will be empathetic in presenting bad news.  And they never make you feel bad when you call them with a seemingly silly question.

Hi Jo: Glad you have the heart friends. You are one of mine.

Betina: It IS a people business for sure. Glad you liked the rocks.

Chris Ann: I think if you are a good listener you just stand out head and shoulders from the crowd is what my observation has been.

Does that mean they need an agent who humps legs and chews up favorite shoes?  Just kidding, Gary!  Loved your post!

Hi Gary-These lines right here I want to add to that. This is my take on it

"You'll Find The Unconditional Realtor At The Heart Rock Cafe(I FOUND HIM HERE IN THE RAIN)"

"Unconditional people take time to listen to you. They invest THEMSELVES in what matters to you. What you say to them is held in confidence. They are a true ally to you, helping you and educating you.  It is all about caring & loving you. Seek their knowledge first, but then find the ones with heart"

********************************************************************************

Even though many words comes to mind when I think about this post and who are the greatest examples of this in my life and in the lives of so many here in the rain as they call it. All the words don't say as much as this pic does because this fellow is by far the greatest and most wonderful example of an unconditional and loving person who listens and hears you and cares. IMHO that would be:

GOD BLESS YOU MY FRIEND (((((HUG FOR YOUR SATURDAY)))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Gary would be at the top of my list for people who is loving and has an enormous amount of unconditional love that is given out 24/7. I would love to have a "Gary" in our office; what a breath of fresh air that would be!

I think it's very important for buyers and sellers to assess a Realtor's personality in addition to their abilities in real estate. You can be a great listing agent and a real jerk at the same time you know.

Gary, I agree that buyers should connect to their Realtor on a personal level.

Hi Gary - Excellent post for agent and consumer alike...hope lots of people in your area find it on Localism.  You cut to the heart :-) of the matter - Knowledge may be power...but Heart is the soul.  Enjoy the game tomorrow.

Communicating is indeed all about listening.

Sales is a funny thing, all agents want to sell, but they have to understand what and why they are selling.  And the only way to do this is to listen to your customers.  And one of the best questions to ask is "why?"

Hi Gary, You always post fabulous pictures, or photos to go with your thoughts! I think the heart should always lead, if you have the skill, knowledge, determination... whatever else is required -people will see that you care about them more than the sale.  That is a client for life.

CARING for your client first is always a good thing.  There will always be another house for your client, but without caring, there may be no more clients!

Gary,

If there are two equally competent real estate agents, or mortgage consultants, applying to represent the client the one who shows he cares usually gets picked. He/she who has heart.

Gary - When it comes to real estate, I totally disagree with the phrase "it's nothing personal, it's business" - we must be more than smart, we need to have a heart!
