When, someone decides, to, either buy real estate/ a house, or sell his home, he can, either, try to take care of this, himself, or hire, a quality, real estate professional, to assist him, and, hopefully, bring – about, and create the DEAL! Although, there are many advantages of hiring the right agent, for you, and your personal situation, and priorities, effectively, marketing it, and, creating, a meeting – of – the – minds, in order to bring – about the best, possible, deal, is one of the most important ones! After, over 15 years, as a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson, in the State of New York, I believe, strongly, effective representation requires the right combinations of skills, knowledge, experience, and expertise, as well as genuine empathy, and commitment! With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why, it matters.
1. Delve deeply; deliver; determine; dreams: Many people strongly identify, with the so – called, American Dream, of home ownership, and the greatest agents, focus on ensuring this dream, does not become a nightmare, and everything goes smoothly, and properly, throughout the transaction period! To do so, requires, a degree of customizing, rather than, pursuing, a, one – size – fits – all, approach, and, consistently, under – promising, while over – delivering! Experience, and expertise, must help, to determine, the best pricing, marketing, and approach, to create the best, possible deal!
2. Empathy; efforts; emphasis; excellence; endurance: It’s important to effectively listen, and, consistently, learn, in order to proceed, with the utmost degree of genuine empathy! He uses his efforts, to emphasize, creating a meeting – of – the – minds, pursuing professionalism, and excellence! There are usually obstacles, along this path, so one must be ready, to proceed, with patience, and endurance!
3. Attitude; aptitude; actions; attention; align: How one aligns, a positive, can – do, attitude, with a well – developed, relevant aptitude, and skill – set, often determines, whether his actions, are as beneficial, as possible! When agent and client, work together, as a team, it permits them, to pay keen attention, and provide, extraordinary service!
4. Listen; learn; leading: A quality agent effectively listens, far – more than he speaks, so he becomes capable of learning, what his client’s goals, priorities, needs, and objectives, may be! In essence, it is a professional’s duty, to be leading, and assisting his client, to achieve quality objectives, and results!
There are thousands of real estate agents, so, a wise homeowner, or buyer, will choose, someone, who understands, the needs, and creates the DEAL! Since, for most, the value of their house, represents, their single – largest asset, doesn’t it make sense?
