Buying and selling Real Estate in Pinellas county, being a Realtor, listing agent or selling agent #1
You do not know how many times I think if someone had just told me what it really is like to be a Realtor, I would never have taken the test !!! NO, I am just kidding.
Being a Realtor or real estate agent is one of the most fascinating jobs. I just love it. But it is NOT what you think it is, it is not what you see. The stuff that happens “behind” the scene is the most interesting part. So, I am writing these posts for all of you out there that think being a Realtor is a walk in the Park. Put a smile on your face, show some houses and make a $10,000 commission. I also write these posts for of all of us Realtor that can identify with the challenges we face.
I am writing this to give you ideas of how to solve different problems and maybe get some good feedback from you. We all have our stories, and it is time we show others that being a Realtor is not as easy as it looks. And for all of you out there that want to become a Realtor, read this before you take the test, it might surprise you.
Here is my first post and first point or question.
Do you let your clients either buyer or seller KNOW how difficult and frustrating our job can be sometimes?
Here is a scenario. “Anne why can’t we see the home Saturday morning, it is vacant?”
What is your answer?
Because the listing agent did not want to spend money on lock boxes, so we have to pick up the key in their office and the office is closed on Sunday, and the realtor has a birthday party to go to and therefore has no time to get us the keys.
Or do you say
I am not sure why, but for some reason we can not get in before Monday. Look at the bright site; we already have enough homes to see for Saturday.
What it the best answer?
Any other suggestions?
