Real Estate Tip of the Day February 13, 2014
Hire a Realtor who sells homes because they love to sell homes!
When the time has come for you to sell your home, you’ll want to select a Realtor who has passion about their profession in selling homes. We’re always hearing about the importance of having passion in what we do and it’s most certainly true in the type of career we choose, as Realtors. Dreading getting up each day to go to work, lackadaisical attitudes, showing up to do our best only part of the time and just not too thrilled about our job, aren’t inherent traits that should describe the Realtor you hire.
You want someone with a genuine desire in helping homeowners get their homes sold for top dollar. Someone who looks forward to completing all the steps in the transaction of selling a home and knows what the steps include. Someone who views challenges as opportunities. Someone who may even watch the home selling and buying shows in their spare time, such as HGTV, because they just can’t seem to get enough of Real Estate!
Selling homes for a living is a customer service business and Realtors who aren’t great communicators or believers in the importance of providing excellence in service, as a customer advocate, then selling homes is likely something that they won’t excel at, no matter how long they try. You just have to be a people person in that you enjoy helping others.
How do you find out about the Realtor’s love of their job? Google them. You can find out so much about a person about what they’re saying online. Visit all of their Websites, Blogs and Social Media platforms that they frequent; read what they’re writing, read what they’re commenting on and see what their customers have said about them and never forget the importance of your instincts once you’ve met with them.
