Who doesn’t complain about the real estate industry and all the crap we have to deal with on a daily basis? But today is not one of those days, today is a day to look around and realize that there are professionals out there that make our business a good one. People that go out of their way to do their job right and to be pleasant.We are dealing with 3 Realtors right now with 3 different transactions that are a real pleasure to work with. We have never worked with them before because our markets have never crossed, but you better believe we will refer business their way!
You know those transactions where the cooperating agent is unaccommodating and makes things so difficult you want to pull your hair out! From making it impossible to schedule inspections and appraisals, not providing documentation, not returning phone calls, never meeting deadlines…….the list is endless. Not this time – 3 different agents on top of their business, ready like we are and always thankful that we have the same business ethic.
One particular guy tells me, “Ines, you are Terrific!”, every time I speak to him – talk about making my day!
So my question is this – Do you think The Real Estate Industry is better now? Do you think that the down market has eliminated the lazy real estate agent that wanted easy money? Has there really been a clean-out process in our industry where the weaker real estate agent has had to leave the industry?
Of course there are plenty of apathetic ones left, but I’m encountering great people around me and it feels great!
(and on a side note: don’t forget to compliment people that do their job well)
