I enjoy going to REALTOR gatherings - big expos, big meetings, big events, and at them, my favorite thing to do is people watching. You see, there isn't a formula for what makes a good real estate agent. There isn't a blueprint, or a body type, or an aptitude. What makes a good real estate agent - well that's subjective to our clients, isn't it? What do they need? Whom do they identify with? Where is the connection?
I've been taking some management classes through my company, Long Realty. They've been very interesting and thought-provoking, and even...revealing. In the first couple of meetings I was, well let me say, I AM intimidated a bit. The room has quite a few of those 'big wigs' which is what I've always called the agents that turn a lot of transactions a year. The room has quite a few teachers. Also mixed in are those that are community minded, or civic minded, and are doing great things within the Real Estate field. And then there's me - and I don't consider myself a big wig, or any of those other things.
Last session, our guest speaker was going to show an example within his speech about typical behavior. He asked for a volunteer. Well, wanting to learn, I raised my hand immediately, knowing folks rarely do.
He looked at me and said, "Why did you volunteer? You weren't supposed to volunteer! NOBODY volunteers immediately."
He was saying this light-hearted, but went on to share his case in point, on how folks tend to hang back when asked, until pity sets in, and then eventually a few hands will raise.
He said to me, "You're fearless!"
And I replied, "No, I just want to learn". I wanted to see what he had to show us. without delay...and so I volunteered. It's a little bit of what I bring that's different, to a "management" table, so to speak.
And so, to my title of this little expose.
Our clients' needs are subjective, and as unique professionals, we're here to help. It's a competitive business, for sure, but it's also all about those relationships and connections.
We all have something to offer.
This rings true for our family life, our spiritual life, our personal life, ...everything. We all have something to offer. We all have value. All of us.
All of us.
