Walking a Mile

If you’re curious about what it’s like to be a Realtor, spend a few minutes reading Greg’s post, Walk a Mile.

From yard signs (people who almost always say “that’s a lot of money”), from Zillow inquires and from escrow officers. From agents asking for feedback from a showing, from idx inquiries on other agents listings and from buyers who have to see a few houses “right now”. From loan officers telling you the appraisal didn’t come in at the right amount, from a buyer saying “thank you” or from another agent telling you that their seller went with “the other offer” instead. Answer in the middle of dinner with your family, at 11pm, on vacation.

I’m inspired to write my story. Publishing Monday.

    This article just touches what being a real estate agent is all about. In the days where everything is done online, many sellers and buyers are forgetting that having an agent that does the footwork and is out to protect your interest is something that cannot be gotten off Craigs list or FSBO sites. Real estate has always been a people business.
