A real estate agent is a person used as an expert to facilitate the sale of real estate. In my opinion, a real estate broker should be open to new things, including innovative marketing ideas and groundbreaking changes that affect buyers and sellers. A real estate agent should be someone who list buyers, sellers and tenants to find out what the public hates about agents and proactively make changes to their own business plan accordingly. A real estate agent should have opening hours applicable to other professionals who are paid thousands of dollars per transaction.
A real estate agent should practice his skills by using them every day. A real estate agent should not be part-time in the business. That means they should not have full time jobs and sell real estate when they need some extra money. A real estate agent should be able to keep calm when something goes wrong. A real estate agent should be professional and never hang on a client or other real estate agent, no matter what is said or done.
A real estate agent should be responsible for learning, understanding and following all marketing tools as a customer and probably should be employed in selling or buying a home. The fact that a real estate agent is not comfortable with the Internet when most homes are now being sold via a viewer on the Internet by a buyer is no longer an excuse. A real estate agent should be adept at understanding communication and marketing methods through all types of media that a buyer can seek and ultimately buy home.
A real estate agent does not need to turn on their fax when they come back from the store. They should be on business, full time and be ready to do business anytime within their opening hours. A real estate agent should not leave the city without backing up and leave only a deal that is as a result. Nobody cares that the real estate agent is on holiday other than the agent himself. A real estate agent should never tell a seller that open houses do not work, when they actually open houses selling real estate every day. A real estate agent should never be so in-the-box that they laugh at somebody to discuss the use of a St Joseph statute. They should not scoff that apple juice scent may or may not sell a house just because they do not want to bother to explain what may or may not work for the seller.
A real estate agent should not cry when a seller tells them that they no longer want to sell their home or they will not use them to sell the home. A real estate agent should not steal courtyards from lawns or benchmarks from subdivisions just because someone did not choose to list the house with them without a competitor. A real estate agent should not wear other business models. They should simply point to the things they bring to the table and why they feel that their business model works better.
A real estate agent should not open the house for a buyer and let them stay there alone, just because the buyer looks good. A real estate agent should always look at the identification of a buyer as they recognize that they are responsible for the sellers property. A real estate agent should always be grateful for someone willing to pay them thousands of dollars for a job that has never been fully explained to the public about how little knowledge an agent needs and how little you are trained when you get your license.
America is unfortunately the only place where all these standards, or should I say the lack of standards, are applauded every day as good and acceptable behavior. The public needs to be reminded that an overwhelming number of inexperienced, participated real estate agents hold the fate of most peoples greatest asset. When should we put our foot down and say thats enough? Real estate is a real profession that requires skill, knowledge and constant scope for executing strategies and results for customers.
The clients deserve better.
