During an interview yesterday, the interviewer asked about how agents treat each other. Abysmally horrible. Especially when it comes to top producers working with those struggling to make in the industry, which accounts for at least 80% of the agent population, if not more. Us top producers have nothing against them but not so the other way around.
Especially when our practices differ from theirs. We do what works for us and what produces results. There is no real estate school to learn real estate, you know, you learn by doing. So if you close 100 transactions a year, you are likely to gain a lot more knowledge than, say, an agent who closes only 3 or 4 annual sales. Not that I'm bragging, mind you, it's just the way that life works.
Because of that, I do not dwell on what other agents do or even give much credence to what other agents believe. That doesn't mean I am not fully aware that at times my own opinions and ideas could be wrong, that is always a possibility. But I follow my heart and logic whenever I can. I know, an odd blend. Doing what I believe is best to meet my client's goals.
Am I doing a good job with that mission? I believe so. My plethora of 5-star reviews prove it.
With that, I bring you my partner's blog today about buying a new computer. I told her not to buy a Windows machine but see, she doesn't always listen to me, either. You can read more in our personal blog today at this link: Buying Another Computer at Best Buy.
