Forgetting Who You Represent, What Is Your Real Estate Role In The Property Dog & Pony.

Scanning real estate blog posts on Active Rain you begin to see a theme surface about buyers an agent, broker, REALTOR represents who cause frustration for the guy or gal wearing the "R".

young tradesmen craftsmen The real estate buyer is frustrating the agent, the property purchaser is not getting it, does not understand and so on rant. And as you read the blog post like I just did for a California broker, I sense a how stupid the buyer of real estate is when it is not the broker's money that is being spent. Not that real estate broker making the payment. Or knowing the budget that needs to be stuck to, remembered. 

Buying real estate is a very emotional experience and agents, brokers, REALTORS representing buyers of properties need to demonstrate more patience, appreciation for the buyer. It is not about how easy that real estate buyer could make the sale for the agent, broker, REALTOR. The mission, process dictates finding that real estate buyer a home, land, farm, waterfront, small business or whatever they intially call, email or stop in to let you know they want.

The heck with what you think the value is to the penny, your CMA or mental BPO if the real estate buyer says I don't feel the same way.

It is not a case of making them understand, they don't agree with you and don't just shut down, go along with the biggest purchase of their life decision making without listening to their own inner voice.

Less or no empathy and growing frustration with the agent, broker, REALTOR is not going to help drive the square peg in the round hole difference of opinion situation. Find another property listing for the buyer to consider that matches the buyer all the way around. Property wise, emotionally too. 

The blog posts where the agent, real estate broker, REALTOR is irritated by both the buyer and seller in the process may signal the exit from the industry is looming near. Not everyone is cut out to wear the "R". And the unhappiness with the process of selling real estate means a change in careers is needed. Maine, big state, freakin' gorgeous four season out door recreational opportunities. Get here quick as you can.

Andy, It certainly is not a business populated with totally rational decisions. 

Hope your travels were safe and a Merry Christmas was enjoyed by you and your family!

Thanks L and B...waiting for the boys to get up, still sawing logs from late night. Easy trip and having fun when they are awake and ready to tramp.

Residential real estate is emotional - not as logical as I would like to think but that is what makes it so fun and challenging.

Life is emotional. What's for lunch can be too! Working with people. Either you are built for that kind of job or not Joyce.

Andrew. The problem in my opinion is that too many agents are chasing a paycheck. I see it all the time. I have even had agents call me almost in tears asking what I can do to get THEIR buyer to accept the deal. if the buyers only knew some of the things I hear as the listing broker.

Andy.....the tough market takes care of the population cleansing of real estate agents....they drop like flys automatically when they are not cut out for the real deal....I'll bet your Maine Christmas was spectacular.....

My current broker  told me in 1988 me my job was to find a client and treat my client better than I would treat myself. Everything after that would take care of itself.

Andrew ~ "Not everyone is cut out to wear the "R". And the unhappiness with the process of selling real estate means a change in careers is needed..." so very true. The turnover is on-going and rightfully so.

Lynda.. not mean spirited intended but just the plain, simple fact of the matter. What you want and what you need are not always the same thing.
