When It Comes To Florida Real Estate, I've Come To Realize: Opinions Are Like Belly Buttons...

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Heritage Realty

...Everybody has one.

Yes, even the teenage cashier at the local grocery store has an opinion about the real estate market, how you could market your home for sale or how you should handle the negotiations of your short sale or loan modification. If you think about it, there's probably at least one person you know who is quick to offer their opinion on how you should handle any given situation, although they may have no real experience or knowledge on the topic at hand.

Interestingly enough, the more I think about why consumers seek the opinions of others, the more I realize that having multiple opinions is not necessarily a bad thing...as long as you are getting those opinions from professionals who have knowledge, experience and a proven track record in the field they are advising you about.

With that being said, one of the best ways to find someone who has an opinion worth considering is to ask your friends, family, co-workers or neighbors for a referral to a real estate agent.

Unless they want you to fail, most people will refer you to a real estate professional who has advanced education, years of service, a proven record and references they can provide...which is exactly the kind of person you might need to help you.

While this post is written with the real estate market in mind, it is advice that we could all follow for any professional we are seeking to hire.

You are right on!  Ask many questions and do it often.  Professionals love giving answers you can trust.  Your hair dresser may be in a different neighborhood.
